Interestingly they're saying Monster might be sponsoring Suzuki.

Jorge to Suzuki and Jack Miller to the factory Yamaha seat would be fine by me.

I'd be really happy with that. I want to see Lorenzo back to being competitive and I think Suzuki would be nuts to not sign him. Miller on a factory Ducati would be good for most parties IMO. I think Jack is not only better than Petrucci but more consistent as well.

IMO but Ducati suits Miller ............... not saying he is a world beater but he is no chump either.

Have been very impressed this year with the way he has gone about things - steady but gentle improvements through practice and consistent race finishes.

He ain’t Marc Márquez but that doesn’t make him chopped liver.

Miller is overrated IMO.

The talk about him is endless, yes he has the win in the rain at Assen, and the pole in Argentina where he took a massive gamble to get that pole. He couldn't convert into a win. Doesn't mean he isn't talented but he has no business on the factory Ducati. Petrucci whom I dislike for various reasons is a far better fit on that bike.

Petrucci just put in the lap of his life today. Twice.
He has definitely increased his chances of a factory seat.

He may well be over-rated, but not in comparison with Petrucci imo, although I imagine Ducati will be in the best position to know what advantage a GP18 has over a GP17. I think getting Iannone back despite the previous history would be most likely to actually give them a second race winning rider.
