No wonder Ducati sacked Iannone... he could've sunk the team.

Actually Lorenzo didn't really offer apology but said he is sorry for those who watch the race from the outside. There is a massive difference so take note.

Also a nice statement on bike development " We carried out a comparison and now know which direction to take." I bet Lin Jarvis and the Yamaha boys are really missing Jorge.

I see the 'gossip' is a bit slow to travel. The headline article is 3 months old....
