Right, just read two things on MCN and Crash, you really need to get up to speed with these sort of things!

Livio Suppo will be standing down/removed from post, apparently the whole Stoner fall out or the potential Rossi move for 2011 is to do with it. Make up your own mind.

Bigger shocker and it might be linked or it might be down to the points thing in WSB regarding Fab and Haga...Tardozzi is out of WSB...now he might, just might be taking over from Suppo.

Big news and nowhere to be seen on the site! C'mon Crash give me more news or at least some speculation as you are great at that!

Suppo quits as Ducati boss let me guess where he ends up next in the Fiat Yamaha team as Jorge Lorenzo's team manager say that because Daniele Romagnoli is also leaving Yamaha at the end of the season.

Is it not just possible that he's been replaced because he's plainly not been doing a very good job, (well, sh1t actually!).

Like it's been said so many times, leave Stoner out of the equation and where are they as a team?

Suppo is a pr1ck and it seems like he didn't have a good relationship with either riders.

I think Tardozzi would do a good job in MotoGP if given the opportuntiy.

There is still the question of is he out at Ducati to please Stoner to get him to stay or to attract Rossi? The rumor mill will be in full effect this weekend.

I think this will be for the good of the Ducati Corse project. Personally I didn't like the way he handled the things with the riders, this goes for the cases of Capirossi, Melandri, Stoner, and how he handled the approach to Lorenzo, not to mention that maybe one of the greatest difficulties for bringing Vale to Ducati was the very same Suppo. Good to see they are taken the rotten apples out of the basket. Suppo never matched to me, the spirit of the true ducatistas. Forza Ducati!

Could I just add that I don't think that "paving the way" for Rossi in the future is an issue at this time.

If Valentino were even to consider a move he'd be bringing his own team and whoever he wanted with him as per the Honda/Yamaha move. For Ducati to try to anticipate that a year early would be pretty pointless.
