Vale Could take Malbroro to Yamaha, Ducati can not afford a factory effort without sponsors, That in effect could leave a grid of 8 full factory bikes from two manufacturers.. Hardly a wc is it.

Stoner's tire choice worked for him. I think the weather was mild enough for that to happen, not like in 2006 at 107 degrees. I was there, no shade. Jorge is a machine and Pedrosa needs to get a little hungrier. He's not quite at the EDGE like Stoner and Jorge.

I reckon Cal has done something to his setup that has negatively affected his bike, as he was consistently faster at the start of the season than he is now.

I wish he had the confidence to at least try and pass Dovi. Seems lately he always gets slow starts and then gets stuck behind his team mate till the end of the race:(

Rossi doesn't have much to think about really, Ducati cannot do anything right for him in two years even with his dream team of technicians. Time to move back to Yamaha and do some real racing.

@Ballistic.
Someone should tell Dani to back his team mate as he will NEVER be world champion.
To date Dani only been good for taking points off his team mate trying to be the man in the hope he will runner up in the world championship.
Oh and part of that beautiful dream I had this morning (true)was after the season was over he was asked by Ducati to give their bike a try out for old times sake, he did and proceeded to do better times than he had done on the Honda,
Just a dream I know but the first half worked out albeit not being half a mile.

Jeez, you read some silly stuff on here.
Great race by Casey, on softs as well, he really looked connected with the bike again compared to his last couple of outtings. I think it was a good kick up the **** for JL as well he'll really have the bit between his teeth now for the next race. You have got to admire JL though, falls off quickly switches off the engine, then runs back to the pits to get cracking again.
Vale has got to leave now no real alternative, the thing is a dog and Ducati just seem clueless as to what direction to take, plus apparently JB has given up talking to them. So back on a Jap for next year I reckon.
Would have thought Nicky might have done a bit better at this track, but having said that the bike is ****, I reckon if he would have been on Dovis or Cals bike he would have got a podium.
Cant see Cal going to Ducati either. I think he should stay put for another year.
It will definately be between Rossi and Dovi for Spies's ride next year and I would pick Dovi.
