Why comeback so early these guys are *****s. Now if he was like 10 points from a world title I say yes come back but he is not close to anything.

Better yet, why be so eager to come back so early when he doesn't even have a seat next year (as his is going to Spies). It's likely that Barbera won't be picked up by any other team(s).

Barbera deserves better, particularly after his amazing front row qualifying, (without a tow), on the satellite Ducati at Mugello. Thanks to the shift to ridiculously expensive 4 strokes, plus the 990 to 800 to 1000 fiasco, there's a dire shortage of rides for people like him. Despite the flak which Dorna receives, it was the MSMA which forced those changes, dominated by Honda, who wanted to drive out their rivals by upping the stakes, while turning the prototype 500GP series into a 4 stroke class, although WSBK already existed as a series to promote their 4 stroke road bikes. The NR500 was uncompetitive, so they changed the rules and started the death spiral of cost increases that's made factories drop out. Let's hope Suzuki come back and BMW enter MotoGP to improve the situation a.s.a.p.

This Ducati is Shi..zzen. It is expected that he should be behind the six factory bikes , and the other 4 non-Ducati satellite bikes. He really is only out to beat Karel Abraham , which he has been able to do as well as beating Rossi a few times...
