re: "Does Cal really want to go to Ducati at this stage in his career?"

don't think he has much choice. better ducati than Suzuki.
as great as this bike looks, this is but a snapshot in time. good or bad, the bigger history simply does not show the necessary commitments to either MGP or WSB. no reasonable person can make a career decision on that, even if they wanted to.

I see 1 bike. the dictate (comma) is 2 bikes, 10 engines, and 2 riders. that is ORDERS OF MAGNITUDE beyond what we're looking at.

re: "All thru the MotoGP years. They lacked one thing.. A top rider. Sure, Hopkins was good, vermuelen, capirossi. But to win they needed a Stoner, pedrosa, Lorenzo or Rossi."

you seem to be new. no worries. if I may, i'd like to introduce you to something known as NATCORK (aka "s1's law"). this acronym spells out...

"No Amount of Talent Can Overcome Recalcitrant Kit."

again, i want to stress this is LAW. so no, rider talent was NOT what they lacked. the one thing they lacked was kit that could win without costing someone an index finger or their life. stakes is high.

I'm not new. Haven't missed a GP in over 12 years. I disagree. You can spout all your tech all u want but what I saw for many seasons was a team that was never gonna win because they didnt have the best riders. Period. The bike might not be as great as the RCV and m1 but it was never a pile of ****. And I still think that with a top rider they could have won some races.

Great ride + Great bike = championship

Honda had to get Stoner to win a championship Dani has yet to deliver

That is a fact, you need both equal
Lorenzo + Yamaha = results
Rossi (past grt8 rider) now on Yamaha = no result yet

Everything needs to be equal for a win
Well that's my opinion which really doesn't matter but it did fill up some pixels and my time :-)

@cammyspop. Gotta agree with u. Can't imagine Cal on a bike that Bradders used to pass Dovi in the race. When Suzuki comes onboard it should thicken the plot, but Cal is much better off on the Tech 3 bike.
