With all the talk about Spies replacing Rossi at Yamaha, would Yamaha be better replacing Rossi with Dovi a proven race winner and third in the championship at the moment?

Rawdawg, it's also reported that Ducati will not be spending money to give a special bike to Rossi. It would only be for 1 year with the potential move to 1,000cc. We are getting rumours about rumours printed as facts. Like I said before.....we'll see.

Things like this only come out when someone is walking/getting pushed out the door.

Well it better to give a rider time to find another seat while they are available even if the risk is reduced enthusiasm for the brand by the rider. But Colin never complained when he was Rossi's team mate and seemed quite happy. No doubt he has reason to complain about his current bike.

"If Burgess stays on with yamaha next year and Rossi goes to ducati without him...Spies gets the best brain in the paddock?"

No. Spies will bring his guy Tom H. with him. It's said that if Burgess stays he will be in a created position for him. It's also being reported on mottomatters that it's a possibility that Burgess may go back to Honda and crew chief Stoner.

Noyes on Speed reported last week that Burgess wanted to stay at Honda but only if he could work with Hayden and Honda said NO! and that they had to think about. They took so long Buress gave up and left with Val. Interesting, no?

Nicky will be in the same situation he was at Honda once Vale comes to Ducati but it wont be as bad as it was when he was with Honda.

it's ironic that Nicky has never been a #1 rider even though he has won a title!

The problem for Dovi is...they tell you you will get the same bike as the other 2 but will you? They might use him like Nickey when Dani came, to test new parts. But Dovi really doesn't have anywhere else to go now that NIckys is back in at Ducati and Tech 3 really isn't an option.

Its no secret that Colin didnt have the same bike as Vale when they where teammates.

Before the last 5 or so races of the 2006 season Yamaha stated that they were giving Colin upgrades on his bike to try to help Vale take the title.

But they only had access to the same equipment in the wintertests.
