Do it Nicky, if they will pay you like a professional.

If Dorna were smart, they would subsidize a part of his salary to get him into the series. He is not really a factor as far as tv ratings in GP, he would be a huge boost to WSBK in the states.

Don't do it for the money Nicky, do it for the better treatment and chance to win. GP have fucked his career and wasted his talent.

Yes and no. A ten year run in GP is not the norm, especially a ten year run getting factory paychecks, not to mention that world title.; Could it have been better, maybe, but hundreds of riders would kill for Nicks career in GP

If i had to guess, Ducati would like to keep him on their brand, and Honda. Speaking of Honda, are they still thinking about the v4 platform for next year, the current platform is at its useful end it seems. When Dorna took over WSBK, it was rumored that Honda scrapped the new v4 project because they couldnt threaten Dorna with leaving GP to concentrate on dominating WSBK. If that project is still a go, Honda would gladly employee one of the best superbike riders on the planet to resurrect that program

Maybe more to this story will come out at Laguna. I hope he makes a clean break from Ducati and goes to WSBK on a new team.

LOL...the last time Hayden followed Melandri it didn't work out too well.


I could see BMW's frustration with Melandri though, they do seem to have a good bike in WSBK but the results don't bear that out at the moment.
