Goes without saying...

I wonder what the pay differential between the two would be? While Dovi would bring to the table more points for the constructors championship, Dani I suspect brings more sponsorship money. The guy has a massive fan base. Personally - I will miss him come the day he leaves the sport. He's no social media darling, but he's really done a lot with what he's got. But yes - it's long overdue. That HRC seat is too important.

Much as I like Dall'Igna, I'm not a Ducati fan and would love to see Dovi back on a Honda.

The only other team that can offer Dovi a better deal is HRC (KTM maybe, but they seem to already have their riders locked in for 2019) and he would be a good fit there. The reality of the situation is: Ducati needs Dovi more then Dovi needs Ducati...

Right now Honda has the bike to be on but beating Marquez on the same bike seems like a massive ask.

That's exaclty why all this doesn't make any sense to me...but it's what's happening.

We'll see.

Beating MM on any bike is a big ask.

Agree other than Rossi. There's a lot of stuff I can say about him, but being stupid is not one of them.
Were that for some reason be his only option, he would retire.

Well Dovi also has to be careful, because Honda does not need Dovi as much as Dovi would need Honda (should he not get a deal done with Ducati).

with Iannone and Rins looking so good on the Suzuki, they might hold onto both riders, so where would Lorenzo go?
