Iannone deserved the factory ride.Cal stayed because nobody wanted him.i think Lin Jarvis made a big mistake of not signing Vinales or Miller.if Lin thinks can challenge marquez with pol espargaro than he will have a bad surprise

@ Ducatisti0

Yes, I am sure that is EXACTLY what he was thinking the WHOLE TIME!!!

Why, pray tell are you so against him? Because he calls the Ducati a Piece of Cr@p (Which it is). Anyone can see this guy is fast. I can't WAIT to see what Gigi can do to that slow, understeering piece of turd...

If they sort the bike, next year we will see a very different story from Ducati.

Well i guess Ducati want to go with a consistent rider line-up. Cal hasn't been impressive in anyway so far this year, having been thoroughly thumped by both Dovi and Iannone, not to mention the fact that he has a big mouth. But he still has a contract with Ducati so fair enough, i guess he gets one more year to stepped it up. As for Iannone i'm guessing either he stays at Pramac with a new factory contract, or he goes to Suzuki along with Vinales.


Apparently Iannone is also staying at Ducati, with Aleix now the front runner for the remaining Suzuki seat alongside Vinales.

Hmmm not sure Cal was thinking but Ducati just won't improve overnight (as it hasn't over years as well) and he's not exactly gelling with that bike either.

I'd start fresh on another team, he's young enough. Just. He should have taken the seat at Suzuki with Vinales or even Aprilia (if they ever do go back as a Factory team).

The problem now is that Iannone is not experienced enough to get the Suzuki seat alongside a rookie IMHO... so that leaves him to stay at the Satellite Ducati. Alternatively, Honda might pull its finger and offer a decent bike for it's customers... then new interesting options would appear.

Innaone deserved the seat now we have to feel for him... He deserves a factory ride and has little chance in Suzuki but he should not go there as Suzuki has lots of ground to cover on their return... Let him stay in satellite bike like Pol and wait for opening in factory seat which will surely happen within couple of seasons...
Now cal stop being mean with the bike and it's makers and go on with work as professional as like dovi... Now we think that you have little fighting spirit as you have decided to stay and fight to solve your problems... do jusTice to that...

Iannone is very young he dont mind to race in Pramac with one factory Kit.. If Ianonne was riding one infirior he would be the first to complain about is situacion.. Ianoone is a Big talent and Ducati know that very well, riders like him never have problems, and if he was unhappy with this situacion aim shure Iannone would Join Suzuki, but like i told i think Iannone is happy and will stay in Pramac with Facotry kit... Cal is a good rider on is good days he can be very strong, at the momente is not happy but maybe in 2015 he can be more Strong and motivated... I also listen that Aprilia is targetting Bautista for the new Motorcycle, well what i can say i dont apreciat Bautista Lack of concentracion but sometimes he ride very well.. maybe Aprilia can be what he was loocking for cause the bike will be very small like him..lolol
