At this time, with all the bull... and crapp constantly said about rossi losing his touch, and casey suddenly being again unbeattabble, I only imagine one way of getting things on an even plan again. Its almost impossible but, the returning of these two guys to teams for wich they previously rode would be a twist on the show and would get the sport back to grips with fans again
Just imagine for a second Stoner riding that red ducati to the limit, and at the same time rossi returning to the repsol honda squad and sliding that orange beast around the corners again... :)

Wouldnt that be a sight?
Cheers

************JUST READ THIS**************

IT MAY TAKE 5-10 MINS BUT IT CLEARLY LISTS ALL PROBLEMS OF THE DUCATI

FOR ROSSI HATERS, IT MENTIONS THAT ROSSI IS NOT TO BLAME FOR HIS LACK OF PERFORMANCE

FOR THE SMART LECTURER'S, IT ALSO MENTIONS HOW THE CARBON FIBRE FRAME MAY NOT BE RESPONSIBLE FOR DUCATI'S FAILURE, RATHER THE COMBINATION OF OTHER ENGINE PROBLEMS ALONG WITH IT. CARBON FIBRE IF DESGNED IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE ENGINE CAN BE THE BEST FRAME POSSIBLE.

GOOGLE SEARCH " THE TROUBLE WITH DUCATI"

I can understand Ducati not wanting to be in a test with the Honda as i believe they need to get back to the drawing board. If rumours are true Casey was over a full second under lap record and Rossi was slower than his current 800.
All rumours though, but it does make you wonder why its a noshow.

"I think Ducati should get down on their knees and beg Casey for forgivness and come back to them.
It would be fun to watch.It would be even funnier watching Casey telling them to go suck it!"

If they wanted casey, they would have offered him the world.

And your point is???


OBVIOUSLY CASEY WOULDNT GO TO DUCATI NO MATTER WHAT THEY PAID HIM. HES A RACER. Not a marketing t-shirt selling pinup

That's what I said in the previous post, they won't offer. They were happy to let him go to make way for rossi. They do not want casey back. He is the reason ducati is under performing in the first place. He couldnt get the engineers to listen to him. He doesnt have the confidence of ducati. But with rossi, they are doing everything to make him happy eg. making an aluminum frame. But going back to the argument, they do not want stoner. If they did, they would have counter offered or begged him to stay. But they were happy to see him off.

No not at all, they weren't happy to see Casey go at all and it was a long time after Casey had left before Rossi was on the open market.

My guess is they would have no problem what so ever in offering him a return, they are Italian after all.

Stoner would retire before ever heading back to them, he's had enough of the Italian way of doing business and I'm glad he's with Honda. Yamaha would also have him in a heart beat.

It seems to me with only 3 1000 days left of testing Ducati will not waste any more time with the current incarnation of the bike. They are either trying to sort the front end issues with the 11.1 (same bike as the 12), with out officially losing another test day to the 1000, or they have a new bike in the pipeline (twin spar rumors). It makes sense to me not to test the 1000 as it is not competitive due to front end issues.

Perhaps Casey might retire to Ducati in 7 years time for 15 million a year?
