Easy

Stoner will moan anywhere he goes...he shakes his head to see if theres anything in there!!

As for upsetting the season this year....it doesnt matter with Rossi out its a forgone conclusion and now nearlly as boring as F1.

Lorenzo wouldnt go to Duke he's on a sure bet only Rossi has the skill and expertise to tame the raging Ducati....if  only it was still the 990 then we would see.

Rosi all sorted

Spoke to a friend of mine today who works for Randy Krummenachers team and the Rossi deal was done a while ago. So Burgess and the boys get to play with a Ducati a last. Talk in the pits is it will be interesting to see the improvement in all the Ducatis when Rossi / Burgess get their hands on the bike !!!!!

The first piece if the puzzle falls into place

The rest should follow fairly naturally. The only big question mark now surrounds the two Tech3 seats 2011. I'll save that speculation for another day but will say I'm expecting two new riders in that team.

Casey to Honda is the culmination of 18 months of work by Honda baiting the hook to catch the big Stoner fish. First poaching Yamaha's laptop mechanics and Livio Suppo and now displaying their utter determination to win titles again.

Team composition will be interesting; all three together ala Repsol in the mid nineties, or a 2 and 1 scenario - the one being?

SVNUT. That is some of the smelliest bullshit I've read on this site. You may not have any professional pride when changing from one employer to another but you can bet your bottom dollar these highly skilled, driven focused world championship winning riders and teams do. 100% commitment will be displayed at all times until contracts expire. It does not make a jot of difference when contracts or letters of intent are signed. Winners do not like losing. Full stop!

pretty easy really

basically livio went to honda to do the ground work for stoner coming because he,s got so much talent who could resist.pedrosa will have to stay because he,s spainish and the sponser repsol like him maybe the only one,s who do. casey no1 rider in the team.pedro 2nd due to the above dovi may still be out!

Old news

To be fair it was mentioned before the season even started so its no big deal really...hope he does well with em but he should be warned...its the bike that wins for Honda and not the rider...ask Rossi and Hayden....

i wish him well

i would really love to see him beat Pedrosa on the same bike next year. whatever happens he has his place in history with the first Ducati moto gp title.

as for Rossi - will be great to see him returning to a thoroughbred motorcycle after his success with Cagiva and Aprilia. Lorezno will take some beating next year but the Rossi, Ducati, Burgess, Preziosi  combination could be too much for the kid and the cash strapped Yamaha to handle...:wink:
