Maybe thats the idea, in the end we will have the fight between Yamaha and Honda and when one off then decied to give and quit, then everybody can have there Dream of Motogp, with every rider riding the same bike, or one Honda or one Yamaha.. Then Motogp will be like Moto2, cool for one side but boring for other, well at least they have diferente chassis..

@ TalentFan
Forget the politics. I wouldn't wish the Ducati on any rider on that list (including the two currently on the satellite machines). I'd rather see them on non-MSMA entries where although they are unlikely to get results due to a lack of horsepower they will at least be able to ride their machines at the limit. IMO Ducatis seemingly chronic lack of front end feel has got to the point where it is becoming dangerous - riders desperate for results pushing to hard, or almost worse, riders scared to push pootiling around at the back of the pack . Until they sort themselves out and show a glimmer of progress why would anybody want to ride the Duc? Hayden was with Ducati six years? did they ever put anything competitive under him? Or did Stoners unatural talents flatter Ducati? Again only my opinion but Ducati need to go back to the drawing board and come up with their own engineering solutions and not follow the Japanese machines. The CF frame might not have worked but it was brave
