great day for all concerned, at least there should be security for the workforce and in this troubled times thats a boon. also ducati can now have the financial clout to live with the yam's and honda's and increase the marks prestige on a global scale.

Who ever dissagreed with @kukisan should have their head examined. Or perhaps the one responsible is dissapointed that Ducati/VW are now the biggest player in motoGP.

Ducati...1
Honda....2
Yamaha...3

&

Ducati...................1
Honda + Yamaha...........2

At last Ducati now has the cash to out bid Honda for key personnel. But it will take at least a year for the benefits to reach the score board.

re: "@shamarone Are you kidding?"

no i am not kidding.

re: "I think merc have enough on their plate to get their F1 team at the front and keep it there."

if they weren't worried, it begs the question, why were they bothering with co-branding one of their models and sponsoring the motogp effort...? when you correctly answer that question you will then have your epiphany.

re: "VW were then sniffing around Horex - that would have made a lot more sense, but maybe they will buy that as well."

no, they will not be buying into any more of moto-side. they have scored the "motherlode" of all brands and brand equity. they knew EXACTLY what they were buying and WHO they are looking to stick it to.
