Hope he stays with Ducati, would like to see him winning on it. Can't stand Yamaha, so hope he does not go there ...

Hearing rumours of meetings between Furuswawa and Ducati !?

Guys, how competive was Stoner at Mugello? 8 place, yep. Why? And that means that Vale was better in this race, or what. Casey, Vale, Jorge, Dany, Nicky, is best riders in the world. The fact is that duc is wery uncompetive last 4 years. Sow stop to blame Vale, cause is some things in the world that cant be fixed, one of them is duc, and preziosi.

I see a lot of people saying that Rossi can't develop a bike and that's why the Ducati is stuck where it is. But is it not the case that while Vale has been giving feedback on what he feels is the way the bikle should go, Ducati have overruled a lot of this and developed it in the way they feel it should go. So while bits of Rossis development has been done, much has not.

I really hope Vale goes to Honda next year...why should he goes back to the team he hated so much? after all the vp of Honda racing promised him factory spec bike at satellite team if he agrees to race with Honda machine next year...no team mate & no yammy's bull**** to think & worry about....just racing & winning.

I still think he might stay with ducati....

But, who knows he might surprise us all and create his owm team. Now THAT would be history.

And its not impossible, Yamaha in particular offer a very good package to satelite teams, tech 3 beinga good example.

He's now the elder statesman of MotoGP, with all sorts of experience behind him, not just on the track.

It would of course mean he wouldn't be in it for the money, a bit like Chad Reed (MX rider) in the states.

Bits? You cannot be serious. The bikes has had more updates and changes in the last 18 months then we saw with Stoner in 4 years. Casey never received engine updates, new chasis etc during the seasons he was with Ducati. Ducati built brand new engines to accomodate the frame changes requested by Rossi & company. He's hardly received bits.

It's just so ironic that Stoner received the blame at Ducati, but since it's Rossi it's now Ducati's fault.
