I would like to beleive you when you said that your priority is to stay with Ducati. But i can't! Just like what you said before that you want to finish your career with yamaha. Then we all find out that you signed a contrac with Ducati. Anyway what ever you do I hope to see you fight for the victory again in the future.

Hmmmm.. Something tells me that they're keeping cards close to chest, and that Ezpeleta has in fact been campaigning at Yamaha and/or Honda to provide another bike for the old Rossifumi.

IMHO Yamaha is probably the more likely choice, maybe Rossi will get a factory spec M1 but not as Jorge's teammate, much like the late great Marco(damn I still miss him) had in his spec RC at San Carlo.

Do not take the great respect between Furusawa and Rossi lightly!

I believe Rossi on this one. I think Ezpeleta is desperate and is saying this stuff to get everyone talking about it.

I reckon Rossi will stay with Ducati, end of.

The media, the fans, the haters (if they are honest) and Ezpeleta especially want to see Rossi at the front again. The fans want to see him win, the media want to talk about The Great Comeback and the haters want to see him get on a competitive bike and get beaten. Ezpeleta just wants his cash cow to win and make him more money (through increased interest).

Go #46, whatever you do, your popularity will remain!

Don't think he will stay with Ducati. They would never be competitive together. Sad, but his results are even worse than at the same stage of last year. If Ezpelata cancelled the rookie rule for Marquez, he can cancel the 4-bike rule too, so Rossi can have his own team with factory support. He's not my favourite but I would like to see him in the top again.

LOL. There is no lack of money or sponsorship with Vale, and one of us knows that there is still very much of a relationship between Furusawa and Yamaha. He was brought in to "consult" almost immediately after he "retired".

Do a little more homework before trying to sound like you know what you're talking about. I presented an opinion, you just spewed garbage. Enjoy your day.

Ezpeleta is just stirring the pot trying to get us to focus on Rossi and who he will ride with next season instead of HOW EZPELETA AND DORNA ARE RUINING OUR FAVOURITE SPORT.

I think he genuinely enjoyed the Ducati festival the other day, he sounded amazed with the pride of Ducati and the following. Maybe he will actually stick around.. Personally i think if he goes to honda, he wont be able to ride it too well, its a stubborn mule of a bike, you need to be casey to get the best out of it with the rear wheel steering technique.

Hmm. Ezpeleta talking about VR on a competitive bike next year, Ducati now tabling a 2-yr deal to Crutchlow...reminds you of the old adage of there being no smoke without fire. For sure nothing is a done deal yet, but paddock rumours of a return to Yamaha for Rossi are really gathering strength now, so it may be a bit more than just wishful thinking from Ezpeleta.
