Andrea Dovizioso excited by Ducati challenge

needs to step aside and let the audi guys have a tinkle, or they could just let him ride the 2006 model bayliss smashed it on and see where they get a ball park idea, at least then they wont waste precious time and money like the last 2 years, hayden just did as he was told just in case they booted him.

well I have to

Respect what Dovi has done this season on the tech 3 machine,However I feel that this is financially a good move but to be honest,If it didn't happen on a Repsol Honda it isn't going to on a Ducati ,What I mean by that is even if the Ducati became as good as a Honda overnight Lorenzo has to be beaten and I just don't see him in that league, close yes but better or as good ?,No /Stoner being away will help most of them to a degree,but as is always the case someone will rise to the task,One thing I have to say is ,When you get riders of the level of Stoner and Spies walking away from motogp coupled with the antics over the few rides there are you have to question the state and integrity of the sport ,The Ducati "factory" rides are well paid jobs but clearly only wanted as a third or fourth choice ,Its a sorry state of affairs only 4 real winning machines in the series tops,How can that represent a "world" championship,Best of the few more like

nice well balanced view!  ''Best of the Few''  I've said it before what we need is Ducati to get on the pace and get Suzuki and Kawasaki back with competitive bikes That would give 10 works bikes on the grid instead of the 4 at present - I say 4 because Ducati is no better or worse that a satellite bike.

sad state...

of affairs three competitive riders Stoner, Lorenzo and Pedrosa and 4 competitive bikes the other being Ben's.  Stig you're right what's Dovi going to do, he couldn't get a title on the Honda, I'm not sure where Ducati are going...yes Dovi has done well but the Tech 3 machine is a good one. For instance for Cal get on board and after season and a half to be fifth in the championship says a lot about the bike itself.  It seems to me that Dovi is more interested in the pay-check (why wouldn't he be) than actually collecting another world title.  I would have opted for a young gun to ride along side Hayden, Iannone perhaps.  I also think they wanted an Italian on the machine, but IMO they have chosen the wrong fella.

Best of luck to Dovi, he's going to need it...I hope Ducati do well next season and make Moto Gp more interesting.  By the way Indy was a debacle poor track, poor crowd, poor facilities, in the middle of nowhere.  Move it to Miller where there are true motrocycle racing fans or just cancel the whole thing altogether.

Re-iteration

Great shame such a good rider on the red thing . Rossi getting the Yamaha is a travesty He's had is shot and has nothing to prove . I suppose the same could be said for Gibernau when he kept getting works rides , Maybe Biaggi too. But its like Dovi has been told he cant have a Japanese contract , glaring inconsistencies , he'd be a great back up to Lorenzo . I think he should have gone to WSBK where he could win and show his class , as it is as many have said 8th. place will have to do
