Suzuki has announced nothing as of yesterday night. Ducati/Hayden is still speculation as is Dovi's move to Repsol Honda as far as I know. Melandri is old news. Elias is unknown and his team is crying for him in vain I think.

You are not missing a thing,Except for Melandi,its all speculation at this point.Some are very probable but nothing confirmed.The longer this thing draws out with Suzuki,the stranger it gets.If they were staying status quo,why not announce it.Hayden is said to be a done deal but so was Spies to Suzuki,so i will wait with high hopes on that one.Puig is said to be fighting hard against Dovi,we will see what kind of pull he really has.

I think the original plan for Suzuki was to see what Spies could do at Indianapolis.Were Capirossi and Vermulen's contracts supposed to be signed at a certain date?or how does it work?As i've said in another post,In that case maybe Suzuki like other teams maybe want to take advantage of the publicity and announce them at Indy,everything maybe is decided but the ceremony is to be in the US.Or,the Dovi to Suzuki rumors become reality and they choose him over Spies,but i don't think so.
After next Sunday we will know more i'm sure.

Yes it has been publicized that Melandri will go to Kawasaki. But it has not been confirmed. He has not signed on the dotted line yet. So yeah, he is 90% probable [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/tongue.gif[/img]

No, sources are a mixture of Spanish and Italian sites and mags, to many to name all, the fact that something hasnīt been made public doesnīt mean it's not been signed.

The Dovi to HRC, Hayden to Ducati and Vermeulen staying in Suzuki I read in Motociclismo so that's 100% trustworthy information.

Oh.

I don't doubt it will happen, I just like to read the press release from the parties involved.

True, He hasn't signed anything yet even it was told that he will sign the papers in Misano, but still nothing until now, as the same with Suzuki, I expect that Capirex will sign in Misano, but not again. The same stuff for Hayden, all those things are expected to be announced in Indianapolis.

IMO, Hayden for sure will go to Ducati, Divizioso? no way... I heard Honda is reluctant to get him, MCN told that he is dealing with Suzuki now... even Denning denied it.

I hope Capirossi will sign another year with Suzuki. Spies to Gresini Honda, Doug Gonda said it, along with Angelis. Gresini said it just need the sign of Angelis. Nakano is still mystery.
