We will differ but to me, his best Ducati form was when there was significant talk about who to keep between Dovi and him.

Sure, the majority were saying keep Dovi (and again, this is due to consistency) but during that time he rode as a racer, even winning a race but once announced he again became reckless in some way and inconsistent in others.

It may well have been caused by that extra effort but to me it manifested itself as inconsistency (again) and backed Ducati's decision, with nothing he has done at Suzuki being different (but as I said, judgement can be altered if he now maintains the rage/form)

On the plus side, his engine will probably blow up before he has a chance to torpedo Asparagus A!

Kidding of course. I am a fan of the Maniac and Aprilia. I hope they get some top 6 finishes next year.

If he accepts it as the kick in the ass, it is possible for a podium or two if other things align but certainly a few top 6 should not be out of the question as for mine, he is a better rider than others on that bike.

I said some time back that to me, Ianonne needs to have a good, long sit down chat with Rossi about how to meld the attitude of party boy with the mentality of a racer and he needs to listed to Rossi. If Ianonne approached the sport in the same way as Rossi, Ianonne would have had better results and be on a top factory bike (all IMO of course) but he is not and has not, thus he has to only look at a mirror

Absolutely.

Burgess said once how he had to enter Rossi’s trailer on Sunday morning and find him under a pile of bodies, wake him up and get him into his leathers. But come race time, he delivered. Iannone hasn’t been very good at the latter and a bit too good at the former.

A pity his talent was wasted. Ducati should have re-signed him IMO. He was extremely fast on the Desmosedici.
I suspect, taking his teammate out will never be forgotten or forgiven

It ain't Ducati's fault, or at least not directly. It doesn't have to do with the famous Argentinian takeout, either. Back in 2016 Ducati couldn't care less about Iannone nor about Dovizioso. They didn't choose any of the two: a really low (for the standards, of course) offer was put on the table and both were asked if they would have took it. Iannone said no and Dovi said yes.


They had already signed Lorenzo and it was all they wanted at the time.
