Honda said they are talking to Jorge, Rossi and Cal. They never mentioned Bradl

I think Ducati won't let Rossi walk out and make him an offer he can't refuse, because if Rossi walks no other rider will want to touch the Duc

mmm, sorry, i miss the poll...
i think J. Rea is a very very good option, but maybe him are interesting in win WSBK...
hope Melandri stay calm and forgett Honda,
they dont do well with him in the past...
maybe a secondary rider to be safe company for Pedrosa,
or maybe an high bet with somebody first class,
Bautista deserve a chance, but Honda is dangerous
with someones...and too much good threat with someothers...

Rossi left Honda because he did not like the way Honda did. (as most of you read on his biography "What if I never tried it".)
So, He would not go back to Honda.
If Jorge will leave Yamaha and go to Honda, Rossi would went back to Yamaha, but he stated "I have done everything I could (for Yamaha)." when he left Yamaha.
He will stay Ducati and try to show he will be competitive, that's Rossi's way.
Jorge may replace Stoner.
Dovi may become a Yamaha works rider.
Anyway I really hope it will be a exciting season next year.

I believe HRC will try Lorenzo and Rossi, but i think Lorenzo will stay with Yamaha and Rossi don't go back to HRC after the past issues.

I'll go with Bradl or Crutchlow.

Of course they can still put Marquez on Stoners full factory bike as long as it's not run by the factory HRC team. They could have the under achieving Pedrosa on a single Repsol bike run by HRC and a single similarly coloured by Catalunya Caixa sponsored bike run by his current Moto2 Emilio Alzamora led team. Similar to Rossi's first years in 500GP with the Nastro Azurra single team bike. Then in 2014 they can have a full 2 bike HRC team for Marquez and Bradl.

Rossi will not go to Honda while Pedrosa is there.

He's to insecure to have another "alien" as team mate (blocked Stoner from going to Yamaha in 2007, did a 'me or him' with Lorenzo at Yamaha etc)

If the other two aliens stay where they are then he will have no choice but to stay at Ducati
