And there what is? He actually said "and it 'seemed' like the best choice" he may be wrong. I am sure it is nothing to do with the money as well, Baustista is reported to be only on 70k next year.

You know I remember in 2008, Niccola Canepa saying this gig was better than a full time WSB ride, which Pirro clearly thinks as well as he had WSB offers. The headline does not say 'Ducati test role better than WSB option' nor did it say 'Ducati junior team better than BMW factory WSB option'.

They will be hacking our voice mails next.

If Dorna is smart and allows CRT to have more engines and freedom, CRT can outperform Ducati in a straight fight. That Duke is POS not a Stoner can handle . Look at Hayden how hard is riding: crash after crash.

Three wildcard races provided none of the four Ducati riders has to sit out a race through injury, which, given that bike's history, is very unlikely. I hope they prove me wrong, though. I'm not saying Pirro hopes people get hurt either.

Good on Michelle, a half decent rider, the Gresini CRT ran out of puff and the middle and second half of the season, he would be in with a chance of a full time Pramac/EuroBet ride in 2014. Good luck to him I say... It means he will also be reserve racer for and with Nicky seemingly being injured atleast once a year and Andrea's inexperience, he could well compete in a few more races.

Smart move from the boy. Hes probably gonna replace one of the 4 ducati riders over season because of injury. And if hes faster than the others, maeby change to ride motogp bike for hole season next year, nobody really knows how are these guys gonna adapt on ducati and what is their speed.

CRT is a joke. Bring the Yamaha M1 engines and get reduced RC213V for the people. WSBK bikes are slapping with both hand on CRT bikes and even some Moto2 bikes/riders are faster, jeesus... Its clear that everyone are never gonna have the machine in witch they can win, but losing 3-6 seconds is just disgraceful...
