People say Stoner spent alot of time in the kitty litter when he was at Ducati.Good grief,can you imagine what would happen if this guy gets on it?
The annual bill for new fairings would eat up the entire budget for the team!

Let him go to Ducati i say and give his ride to Dovi!

Dovi is a very good rider but he lacks something to win races. Sure he can finish on the podium sometimes more this year then previous, but that's all he's got no matter what he's on. Lorenzo,Stoner,Dani, and Spies now has proven to be faster he can not challenge the front 3.

Simo has poor results indeed but I think he is, and will be a faster rider then Dovi. If they can map his bike out so he can finish at a good pace and he can cut the dumb mistakes out he's there. He does have that speed to win a race more then once which I don't think Dovi can do.

Typical Manager to say hurry up and sign him as there are others that want him....like who exactly?

* Yamaha....No way they want him, Tech 3 would take Dovi over this clown any day and I hope Dovi goes there to replace an ageing Edwards.

* Ducati....The only possibility and only if Marlboro stumps up the funds. If he goes there he will be as good as finished inside a year and will then be at a claiming team.

His only hope is Honda and I would think that with his record of zero podiums in nearly 2 years on a factory ride should tell them all they need to know.

Even if they are interested they should make it a point to offer no contract until the end of the year to protect Stoner and also to evaluate if he can actually get a podium and show some racecraft.

I'd personally dump him in a heart beat as he has caused nothing but grief to Honda, is not a team player and has limited concentration over race distance.

To run one fast lap is extremely difficult....the aliens do it over race

@fan
Simoncelli has alot more potential than Dovi or Horoshi.
He is Lapping faster than Stoner the championship leader at some tracks.
Dovi will Never win a title unless stoner pedrosa rossi lorenzo leave motogp.
And hiroshi hasn't shown anything on that honda.

Why would Honda keep him on a factory machine........because he has alien pace, as said above he can sometimes outpace all the repsols and has immense talent. If honda let him go he could possibly beat them so i'm pretty sure, regardless of race crashes, he will keep his factory bike ride with gresini nxt yr.
Not sure about Hiro as he's looked cr@p at some tracks and dovi at gresini seems strange as he dont get on with supersic. Jonny Rea deserves a chance.

Give Jonny Rea a chance ????? Why , he cant even win at SBK level . He won't even keep up with Elias in MotoGP . If there is talk of Simmo going to Ducati , does that mean 3 Factory Ducati's ? Or does Mr46 have a buy out clause in his contract and is heading out the Bologna door ??

He's had two years on a Honda, this year on a full blown factory outfit. He has the same support and access as Dovi, and he cannot even hold Dovi's jock. Not only that, like Dovi, Simo will never be a world champion.

Lapping faster than Stoner at some tracks equates to nothing.

Simo has shown his potential, he left it in the gravel trap. He is the second coming of Xaus. Fast but incredibly stupid. The only potential he has is to run his mouth, which he has done very, very well.
