I wouldn’t be surprised at all if Jorge finishes the balance of the season with more podiums than Dovi.

One win and Dovi was already bitchy in yesterday’s press conference.
A few more and it will be full on catfight.

I mean, him and J.Lo have never been friends and J.Lo most definitely isn’t on many people’s Christmas card list, but Dovi has been getting a bit cocky since signing his new contract. If it helps him win more, more power to him, but it seems to be having the opposite effect on him.

Would be interesting to see results of other Ducati riders with the new shaped tank as whether it is a JL thing or an improvement that suits all could be a telling legacy for JL to leave.

Once healed, I suspect that Pirro will be testing it somewhere.

If he is comfortable it should be expected as for mine, he is the better rider plus now if he feels the bike is sorted he also has the extra motivation fuelled by comments and innuendo.

And yet when Pov mad comments a few weeks back he got shot down.

I have seen it in a few places that Dovi has shown a side this season that a lot of people did not realise was there and, well frankly, some preferred the goody two shoes Dovi.

Like I said, I liked the old Dovi better than the new Diva Dovi who has his gob in everybodies business. Number one status is not suiting him.

Unfortunately I feel the same way.

I also subscribed to the theory at the time and remain so today.

Either the #1 status has somewhat gone to the head or it is a growing manifestation of the ongoing issues he has experienced with Lorenzo throughout their careers (although it must also be said that Dovi and Ianonne are not mates, but then few are mates with AI).

Going on a limb a little but I suspect that the decision to go with Petrucci may have been influenced by the unsettled environment in the team as for mine, Jack Miller may well be far more ambitious.

I've heard Jack count ....6,7,9,10...
I think he would support a teammate if/when appropriate.
