Seems like the Ducati culture is still there

If you live in a glass house don't throw rocks.
Morbidelli is supposed to go there.
Maybe Pedrobot will get the other seat.

For the culture part I find even more disturbing the next quote

""I have the impression that Gigi [Dall'Igna, technical boss], Paolo [Ciabatti, sporting director] and Davide [Tardozzi, team manager] wanted me to stay. But I do not hold a grudge."

So the directly involved parties do not get to decide about what's best for the team, but someone higher-up.

Thanks, that's encouraging news. As someone else said, roll on 2019, though I do wonder if Jorge will pull out the stops on the Ducati as a big F You to Ducati.

As another person said, HRC should be able to tap Jorge up nicely for some very useful intel on Yamaha and Ducati.

Lorenzo thinks Ducati is sad to see him go after he has given them 1 win for his 12M Euro salary? Not 1 Championship... but 1 win on a track that suited the bike.

Ok, he got the fuel tank he wanted... lets see him earn that salary and get a string of wins.

That's really short-term thinking. Plus, JL is not 100% at fault for this, and it's becoming clear now.

It's not short-term thinking. It's way too early to declare JL's struggles on the Duc completely cured since he got a reshaped fuel tank. Lets see what he does in the next few races. If he's back racing for 10th vs Rabat... then what's the excuse? Oh Lorenzo not trying anymore! He's sticking it to Ducati!

I call bullshit. Easy to say I wasn't wining because they didnt give me this that bla bla. Sounds like Cuntslow, and like Yamaha's riders, whining and making excuses. For perspective, the year old inferior Tech 3 Yamaha almost won coming a close 2nd, the other Ducati was winning, including a runners up by its satellite.

Do you think 2 years old info on the m1 is going to be very useful to HRC?

What makes you think keeping Lorenzo would have been good for the team. Up until this weekend Lorenzo was embarrassing.
