You people are deluded, herr smidt is absolutely right. If Ben had his way, he'd NOT be on a Ducati in 2013 and he has certainly not made any deal with Suzuki in any shape or form. Next year is make or break for Ben, the fact that he's forced to go to Pramac Ducati of ALL teams speaks volumes

" Why do people assume that Suzuki will even want him? Suzuki didn't choose him to be a rider in their MotoGP team, let's not forget.

Four factory backed Ducati's. I like it. 4 inputs better than 1x46th moaner,no doubt. Good going Ben. Just troll around like Rossi for the remaining races and lets see what Valencia testing throws up.
A breath of fresh air for him and a huge opportunity for Crazy Joe. They are not diminutive either. Prolly get on just fine with D16 horsepower advantage.

re: "Ben seems to be able to get the most out of bikes that are not perfect."

NOOOOOO...! my theorem formulated more than a decade ago has been proven out 4x now (rossi '06, stoner '10, rossi '12, spies '12). see, once 3+ instances occur it automatically goes before the magistrates. the review process has begun for adoption into LAW. write this down, the constables are going to expect you to know this...

Good move, Rossi have showed them the way, the rest they have to go alone. Can't wait to see Iannone.
