    I put results in case you had not seen it yet. Who would love to be a fly on the wall in the Ducati garage ? Wonder why Rossi was drifting back from Marquez ?

    Yes 1st half it was nip and tuck with Rossi and Marquez. Shame Lorenzo came off , big gaps between riders is not so good for racing.

    Redding was looking good until bike failed.
    Smith was very poor by his standards.
    Laverty achieved his best result even if it was at the expense of others failures.
    Crutchlow is improving with every race - he's now up to falling off twice.

    Shame Rossi's second bike wasn't as good as the first he was looking strong.
    Cal :doh: I reckon he'll be out of a job soon.

    Will he apply for Ianoni's job ?

    I wonder if Ducati will double Lorenzo's offer now ? Lorenzo and Dovi that would a nice pairing.

    Can't see Ducati wanting Cal back even if he rode for free.
    Surprised Lorenzo is even considering it only last year he said he wanted to finish his career with Yamaha. Probably got more to do with Rossi getting a new contract than him being unhappy with the Yamaha.
    Dovi and Lorenzo mmm two quality riders and the Ducati does seem to be seriously competitive now, could be interesting, but who would get Lorenzo's Yam.
    Please don't say Cal :eek:.
    Wouldn't mind seeing Bradley on it though he's been knocking on the door for a while now, better still Vinales, there's a future champion I reckon.

    Bradley has gone to the Orange side though, KTM for the next 2 seasons, unless there are escape clauses perhaps?

    Yeah I know but I'd rather have seen him on a works Yam, KTM is an unknown quantity and will probably take a few seasons to catch up, look at Aprillia.
    Can't imagine there's a get out and still not convinced Lorenzo will leave.

    Vinales on the Yam and Lorenzo on the 2017 Ducati, I'll pay to watch that.

    Got to admit the 'orrible Miller is showing signs of coming good on track and his attitude. He's not afraid of that horsepower now.

    Now there's a thought if Lorenzo doesn't move, he certainly seems to like the Ducati.

    Anybody heard why Bradley was so far down, off the radar all weekend, not like him.

    He's just signed a contract !

    Colin Edwards was like that, rode the wheels off the bike, signed up, didn't try again.
