Simoncelli deserves the factory ride (Repsol) however if Honda drops to a 2 man team next year Dovi will be out. I believe Dovi will inherit Aoyama spot in Gresini. Simoncelli will keep his spot at Gresini with a factory bike. IF Honda maintains a 3 man team then Marco will get that 3rd spot. YES! this is speculation (although I believe it is a logical one). Arguably the bike has contributed to his improvement as well as ability, but the same goes for any rider. Put an average rider on a great bike and his performance will improve (probably never to WC level) but still improve. The same goes for Rossi, he is on a bike that is not better than the Yamaha and his performance has dropped (not his talent). While I give Casey credit, he is also on a better bike so his performance is up (even at Jerez). Rossi on the Honda would be just as good.
