IMHO Rossi will stay at Ducati..........and don't be surprised if the pig of a bike (relatively speaking of course) is eventually turned into a winner. Stranger things have happened!

yamaha only need a title sponsor which may be why they want rossi...other than that they dont need him...

rossi hasnt got that bad that he needs to pay for his bike in the form of a sponsor....

ducati needs him and with audi it may be that the problems get solved faster...

besides with yamaha, all he may get is more wins(which he doesnt lack)..he already has the most wins/titles.....with ducati though if they get the bike sorted, the championship may get more interesting with 6 bikes that could fight for the title

It it's true that Preziosi is to take a back seat and not be so involved then Valentino, Jeremy and team stand a good chance of improving the Ducati. I really think it has been Preziosi's reluctance to accept what Valentino has been telling him that has held the development back. Preziosi, who is said to be a total control freak, thinks he knows best which is why anything Valentino has asked for has been virtually ignored and all that has happened is that the set up has been adjusted a bit!! With the introduction of Audi, maybe this is the light at the end of what has been a long dark tunnel and the Ducati will now get somewhere!

@herewego Rossi said back in 2003 that his decision not to sign for Ducati for the 2004 season was driven by the fact that he felt Ducati did not build or develop bikes to suit riders, but expected the rider to adapt to suit their bikes. Then two years ago he allowed himself to be seduced by a big pay packet. It's probably not much of a consolation to him to know that he was right nine years ago.

Some suggest that Audi will bring a bigger budget to Ducati, but what they really need to do is simply tell the factory to listen to what the riders want. Which probably includes dropping the L4 configuration. It's too long, limits the choice of engine position and buggers up the weight distribution. USP it may be, but it shackles the development of the bike.

Valentino has win a lot of race and 9 world championship in all class, so this time in Ducati, he didn't prove anything, he just need to prove for him self to make the Duc competitive, so let's hope he can do it. on my side i 100% believe he can do that and we will look 2013 he can fight for win. go rossiiii....

The best step forward for ducati, is to remove prezioso, that ****** don't lisen to anybody and do what he thing is best, not what the pilots want. Remove that ****** that only cover his ass and you could be way better that right now. You know, the new engine and frame are crap... we know that.
