You can be a real arse at times
Preziosi doesn't own and / or manage Ducati and has no control over their manufacturing capability does he, or the speed with which 3ed party suppliers get stuff to them - so you can hardly blame him for Ducati being unable to get new ideas or parts onto the bike as quickly as Honda, who are ever so slightly bigger and can do their work in-house. You also know full well that they have given Rossi bucketfuls of changes this year and last and his toys were still being thrown out of his pram faster than discarded parts into Bologna landfill sites.
Yet again you blame a rider for developing a winning bike backwards and then say it is being repeated this year, but give another rider the benefit of any doubt and put the last 18 months of piss poor performances squarely onto Preziosi's shoulders. And the honda you say is being developed backwards has two riders giving feedback, not one and is 1st and 3rd in Laguna FP1 - not to mention never been out of the top 3 this year.
Back to the topic - Rossi has said he has 3 offers to consider and that the choice of where he goes next year is squarely his own to make. Seems reasonable to assume they are Ducati, Yamaha Factory and Honda satellite.
He says it is the most difficult decision he has ever had to make and that all have negatives. Interestingly, when pressed about whether he would choose Yamaha, he as good as said the negative was having to compete against the best rider in the world on equal machinery. A telling remark as that bike clearly, at this point in time, gives him the best opportunity of race wins next year - which is what he obviously wants.
No mention of relishing the opportunity to fight Lorenzo for the title on equal machinery and not being able to wait to get to it.
