" you need to make a bike that can be ridden with the Grand Prix smooth style "

Fair enough, but as Rossi was hired to do just that and failed, what makes you think Dovi can do what Rossi and Burgess failed to do after a year and a half.

I'm not sure if I believe he can, but lets hope that with Audi support something might get done, Rossi is quitting because he wants his last 2 years on competitive machinery... luckily for him he has the option weather people agree thats right or not!
Dovi lets be honest this is his last chance, its win win, if he ends up down in 10th then it's the bike not him, afterall Rossi couldn't ride it. If he does better than he'll be able to shout at how he did something Rossi couldn't.

Lets hope Duc can change, because even with Stoner on it, it might win races it's not gonna win championships.

Division adapted to the Yamaha very quickly, and is currently the 2nd best yam rider. No evidence to suggest so far that he may not be able to adapt to the ducati.
Odd man out is Cal, with tech3 rumoured to be courting depuniet.This only really leaves the gresini honda,but Cal messed them around in '09 by backing out of riding for them in moto2, and riding wsbk instead. He may end up in another championship!
