Ducati could be about to take advantage of Valentino Rossi's 'end of contract' status by attempting a bid to poach him from Yamaha.

I can't see Rossi and Burgess parting company. If Rossi were to go to Ducati, he would have to take Burgess with him. I don't know if that would fit in with Ducatis plans.

Believe it or not, I'm going to give Flossi a bit of a rap here! If he was after money, he'd go to Ferrari. In his current fragile state, he'll need a t1t to hang off, and Yamaha with JB is the biggest, juiciest one around, and you couldn't blame him. Ducs current lack of direction and progress would make anyone think twice and they need to commit the money like Yamaha did. It's cost Yamaha a lot of money and a lot of disgruntled and retrenched workers, but hey, they did get their big gold cups didn't they!

Stoner's approach from Honda has nothing to do with him 'seemingly looking elsewhere to rediscover his form'.

Stoner is giving 100% and more on the Ducati right now. He's not looking at Honda because the Duc has slipped back this year. He's looking at Honda because they've been chasing him very aggressively since last year and offering a fat pay cheque.

Rossi aint going to Ducati. Why would he? The money? Don't think he needs that. The idea of being on an Italian bike? No think he's a bit beyond that. The thought of jumping on a bike that is pretty much guaranteed to get 4th by not falling of? No don't think so. The thought of developing a bike that used to win races but be very hard to ride to a bike that is easy to ride and win races? No, that's the Yamaha.
