The 9x world champ should stay on Duc, prove the crown with title on that red pig bike, j lor can be goes to Honda but who knows..
It would be even more boring if rossi on Honda because the others gonna fight for 2nd place except Jlo.

Interview with Ezpeleta. It's german but it's say no exceptions for Marquez. Ezpeleta only allowed Suzuki to bend the rules back in the days with Bautista because they needed a cheap(er) rookie and would have left the MotoGP even earlier.

jlo will not leave yam , he has no reason to , the yam will rule when stoner leaves.
bradle is contracted to lcr.
vale has too much to prove at ducati , to leave will leave a bigger question mark than the one stoner will leave.
bautista is a a choice , but i doubt he will be honda's choice.
de punet is a good choice for a chance to show what he can do on a good bike , byt would probably be last choice on the grid.
cal i think is gelled to the yam and to go to honda he would start all over again.
my guess and i think good choice is dovi , he is a better rider now than ever before , and i believe he would be very strong.

@ NutBallRacer. Many thanks for the link on Hailwood. Modern followers would never understand how good SMB was. To watch him race at Brands on a borrowed 500cc Norton, while a full works GP rider, against all the regulars was amazing. Imagine Casey, Jorge, Dani, or Rossi having a wild card in BSB and you'll see what I mean.
Kel himself was a regular guy and a bloody hard rider. When he was spannering for Roberts (senior) him and King Kenny used to wind Barry Sheene up. Good fun.

I wrote a 3-post rant on this subject in the current Ben Spies post on Crash earlier in the week. Still think Honda will stick with Bradl or Bautista as a means to give Marquez a landing spot in the bigs the following year. Not hard to imagine an all Spanish Repsol HRC team. Bautista and Pedrosa to be followed by Pedrosa and Marquez in 2014. By then MotoGP will hopefully have its rules package sorted enough to allow BMW and Suzuki to get into/back into MotoGP on a factory level.

Looks like most people gave an answer to the question 'who do you want Honda to sign' as opposed to who you think Honda will sign. Could be Dovi back I guess. But who wants to ride for Honda anyways...
