Get well soon! -its a shame the Lack of rides available in MotoGp and the expensive they all became- DORNA should aim to a 28p. Grid and work to make that possible.
Best wishes in Moto2.

why does it seem like ducati have done as much as they can to destroy canepas career and keep him of the duc just like toyota have done to timo glock in f1 :?

Destroy his career and keep him off the Duc? What?

They did him a favor by giving him a ride he didn't deserve. Superstock isn't exactly the MotoGP proving ground and/or the step below MotoGP. If anything they ruin his career by putting him on the Ducati.

Kobayashi has done for Timo, not Toyota.

The Dawg is right..I don't know that much about Niccolo, apparently he's a bright lad, but..he hasn't really performed and you've got to ask, has he tried to run before he could walk.?

GP2 would be his best move.

Canepa had been a test rider for ducati alongside vittorio gaureshi,he was rewarded that with a motogp ride,this season has been a learning one for him,he hasnt done too good,and looks like he wont get the chance again,hope he gets a good ride somewhere,one year is not enough, to get decent results.
