Dovizioso good choice for Ducati, says Hayden

Nicky Hayden believes Andrea Dovizioso is the best possible choice to replace fellow Italian Valentino Rossi in Ducati’s factory MotoGP squad in 2013. Dovizioso is close to agreeing a deal to ride a Desmosedici GP13 and an announcement is likely to be made by the Bologna factory during next weekend’s Czech Republic MotoGP round in Brno. Dovizioso is understood to have told...

nah.....

as you keep telling everyone its not the rider that develops the bike it's the engineers.
Do you really think it would have been wise for him to stay at Ducati at 33?
Lets see how Dovi gets on eh.....see if he lasts 2 years.
As I said earlier good luck cos he is gonna need it.

I know I am just joking Buell about riders developing bikes. Do I think its a wise choice for Rossi to stay at Ducati at 33 I think not but he made the choice to go there in the first place. You're right lets see how Dovi fares on it will he last two years I guess time will tell. You just have to look at Nick how long has he lasted at Ducati three seasons and he is an ex champ.

No potfiller NO!..Don't say that about Alex Barros, please..

Don't you know that the ex Tech 3 satellite rider was single handedly responsible for developing Rossi's superlative 2004 M1?

Nicky will be over the moon.

I'm afraid Dovi's got nothing that will scare him - mid table at best.

lets stick together was a nice sentiment...

Maybe if Ducati had given the guys the updates they were promised, when they were promised, Rossi might have stayed but it's hard to keep the faith when you are being d!cked around week in week out. Do you think Nicky would stay there if Yamaha or Honda wanted him? Not likely IMO...

Dovi won't jump ship?????? If he has the opportunity to go to a works Yamaha/Honda you can be sure he will be off quicker than a rat up a drainpipe.

@Firebird.

Dovi can't go to Yamaha seats are full and why would he go back on a works Honda after they threw him out.

All i have to say to the Dovi/Ducati doubters for next year is:

Money is power in the top class and when you have the Audi bank role fueling the Ducati effort, i say watch this space.

I think Rossi might have jumped ship one season too early! With Dovitsiozo's natural tallent and the Ducati/Audi ambition to put a bike back on the top step of the podium, lets just say i think there might be a few suprises next year!

i personaly feel sorry for Cal because with this recipe he could have shone at ducati next year, just imagine what it would have done for his his rep if he put it on the podium a few times next year (The Rider that sorted out the problems with the duke where Rosi and JB failed) which unfotunatly now will be Dovi.

The reality is its a win win situation for who ever goes  to Ducati, Audi will not want to tarnish their rep and will want to throw everything at this, if they fail Dovi could still walk away with his head held high because he will only have emulated the best Moto GP rider in history which will only prove that there is a deep rooted problem at the belogna factory (another top quality rider fails to put the duke on the podium).
