I donít think he is Stoners class either but I would consider him among the best of the rest. Heís ridden a Ducati for a few years now so knows the bike and is younger than Petrucci and Dovi. Fabio would be a complete newbie to the bike so Miller could give some point of reference about the new bike being better or worse in different aspects.

I Ride: A bicycle. Heehee
Miller seems inconsistent and can't seem to manage his tyres well. I don't see him as a potential champion with his current approach.

As to Fabio, it's too early to tell. We don't know how he would do on a Ducati.

Jorge and Fabio could make a great team, similar riding styles. Fabio could learn from Jorge how to make soft tyres go race distance and how to ride the Ducati in general.
Itís too early to know if Fabio can handle another make of bike as the Yamaha is renowned for being the best to start on, but so far heís certainly looking like the real deal.

Will Ducati try and lure Marc for 2021-22? I personally would welcome this change. Could be fun to watch.
One thing seems to be sure - they gotta do something, right now they are a bunch of losers (by their own standards).
OR. Maybe on these 2 tracks (Assen and Sachsenring) which are very "turny" and have rather small straights (bikes don't reach 300km/h on either) they struggle a bit more as the engine power counts much less, and the turning of the bike counts much more?

Think about a bike that has its main issues in acceleration and his main plus in its ability to turn, they would be competitive on these kind of tracks wouldn't they.

OH WAIT....(coughing) YAMAHA .............

With the exception of Mugello, the "Ducati tracks" are yet to be raced on this year.

But of course if they'd struggle there as well we'll need to re-have this conversation.
