Yeah rossi... sure thing. Hopefully Casey gets beaten in a couple more races and that burning feeling returns. Who cares what the powers to be decide for the future of the sport, ride for now!

For me its clear like water Stefan Bradl will have that place esay.. Jorge Lorenzo will never leave Yamaha all bet on that all my money , Rossi will never go to Honda again iven if he is so ungry for that win he will worck with Ducati, and i also tinck that Honda dont whant Rossi again. So its clear that Pedrosa can have another chance to be the number 1 on Team and Stefan Bradl will have is chance of learning one Factory bike(i really beliave on this guy i really tinck i can surprissed many people him 2013)

Rossi would be best served staying with Ducati and making it work if possible. If Ducati start showing very positive signs, he might be tempted to stay where he is. That might just be wishful thinking though.

Honda will talk to him though, even though they probably hate him. Business is business.

CRT will probably be vilify me, but i feel Cal crutchlow has the same aggressive riding skill Casey has, and would be a good choice, along side Marc mrquez after his years satellite probation,dream team.

Why not Bradl or Bautista -- a one-year contract and see how they do against Pedrosa (I assume they'll keep him -- he goes with Repsol). After all, they ride the satellite bikes, so they are in the rider development system. If that doesn't work out, then Marquez the next year. Mostly keeps it a Spanish team. Rossi? Wow that would be unusual -- I highly doubt it is even possible. Poor Dani, in any event.

BTW -- and a little off the subject, but here's a neat article on GOAT speculation: Check out SuperBikePlanet, and search for kelonhailwood. For all you newbies, the interview-ee was in GP racing as a world champ rider, tuner, coach, personal manager and team principal for many decades, so has tremendous credibility and insight over time. Maybe you'll recognize his name.

I'm one of those who voted Rossi, but from my side, it was more wishful thinking than anything else :).

I suspect it might be the same for many other Rossi's voters :)
