I hope I am wrong, but such move would not be good for Dovizioso. His smooth style won't suit Desmosedici. I hope he will not follow footsteps of Marco Melandri in the "red team".

Looks like he is desperate to get factory seat in MotoGP. Won't be good to see him finishing behind Tech 3 Cal Crutchlow all the time next year.

As I said before, I hope I am wrong.

Envy dovizioso. He was envy of Simoncelli, he's envy of Rossi... man, this is an envy guy and I don't like it at all.

He wanted to sue Honda to keep the ride... that's Dovi.

I dont know why he is desperate to get a factory ride, his bike he is on now is well capable of winning a race. Him winning on ducati is a lot less likely

Bad decision for Ducati and Dovi. Dovi is a front end rider, much like Rossi.

Dovi has just transformed himself from occasional podium to perpetual also ran.

Ducati needs to sign Iannone. I think he's the only guy who can potentially ride the POS that is the Ducati whose name isnt Stoner.

Dovi wants to be on the podium. He is a very talented rider and his talent is getting him on the podium this year because the satellite bikes are so close to the factory spec.
Next year that wont be true, more than likely the tech3 M1 will be more or less the same as this years while the new trick stuff goes to VR46 and JL99.
He must hope that Ducati just gets better and be apart of something that matters again.
Commentators say Cal would suit Duke better but based on what evidence? Dovi has earned a factory ride.

Guess this opens the door for an all-brit super team in Tech 3 next year??

Lorenzo-Rossi with the 2 brits getting their cast off parts, sounds great for us brits!
