Not sure why Nicky should be especially motivated.He is leaving them at the end of this year!

Nick23,that is something we will never know mate.
But when you think that Casey won races on every version of the bike that Ducati gave him,it makes you think what he would make of the current bike.

When they asked Rossi about Carl going to Ducati he said may be he could ride it like it needs to be ridden Stoner he was the only one to be able to ride it when they dubed it down to other riders it went no where i think the duc only works on the raged edge you need a rider to take it there may be Carl can do it we will see

Yeah I cannot agree more. A good way for Nicky to shove it to Ducati is to ride a factory-backed ART with a pneumatic valve engine and actually beats the Ducati prototypes regularly. Even though he is 32 years old, Nicky still has plenty of fight left. Put him on a Yamaha or a Honda and I'm sure he will be a podium contender.

Compared to Rossi's magic last corner pass on Crutchlow, Haydens pass on Dovi was a desperate lunge for some home circuit glory which went spectacularly wrong and made him look chuffin silly in the process.

I love Ducati and i still wear the colors when i go to laguna, my favorite time was when Stoner and Hayden were together racing, but Ducati mistreated both riders because of their lack of professional relations and common sense. Aprillia is a way better handing bike than the Ducati and they said they can make more than 230 HP with Pneumatic valves it will be fan to see Aprillia fighting with the big boys, as for the PR Honda remains to be seen what kind of package it will offer.

I submit the move worked for Hayden, as, IMHO, he couldn't care less where he finished, wether in front or behind Smith, as long as he was in front of his teammate.
