MotoGP » Stoner 'has already decided to go', fears Ducati


As speculation over the MotoGP 2011 rider merry-go-round increasingly gathers pace, a well-informed Ducati Marlboro source concedes that 2007 world champion Casey Stoner 'has already decided' to switch to Repsol Honda next year

Interesting article by Denis Noyes over on crash where he goes into a bit more detail on possible team line-ups for next season.

Certainly it's all speculation but Denis' speculation is a considerably more intelligent and reasoned than the most of the drivel that has/will appear here.

Hmmm, if it is true then the Honda head honchos must be a bit nervous seeing their prospective sign up bin it on two races.

So i guess at Repsol, whoever comes out the top in the team at the end of the year gets to stay?? Dovis had a year to get acclimatised to the factory bike and Dani, hell hes being there forever so fair enough whoever wants the ride bad enough and who comes out on top will secure the seat. The other one goes to Stoner. Fair enough i say.

IMO the teams next year:

Fiat Yamaha: Rossi, probably Spies
Ducati: Def Hayden, possibly Jorge (or even capirex or dovi for italian sake)
Honda: Dovi (likely) Stoner (looks like it)
Suzuki: Bautista, Pedrosa (similar size)

LOL @ people still thinking spies deserves a factory ride! He has to earn it forst and prover himself. A long way to go yet, but to think spies will get a factory ride when he has not yet produced the goods is ridiculous.

Anyway, id LOVE to see stoner on a Honda! I think he'd be awesome! If Ducati want to keep him, they better get their cheque book out!

I will bring Dani to Ducati so that we can have the bike built to our specifications and win the World Championship. We can make the bike smaller and lighter so that it fits perfectly the best rider in the world. This will help sell additional Ducatis and Cigarettes in Espanol.

Damian- tell me another rookie that can qualify and ride like Ben? Yes, Ben has had two spills from losing the front. Putting that aside, the over-all talent that Ben displays is tremendous vs his rookie counter parts.
My Picks:
Repsol- Dovi and Stoner
Fiat- Rossi and Spies (but Lorenzo would be a better mate)
Rizla- Dani and who cares
Ducati- Nicky and Lorenzo (but Rossi would be a better mate)
Tech 3- Edwards and De Puniet
Pramac- Capirossi and who cares
Gresini- unchanged

That's all. Please resume your predictions.
