Dont know what audi can do. Audi is not known for any success in recent years except for Le Manns. I'm not sure why Valentino is not mentioning his decision but I'm guessing it's the paycut from 14-17 million euro to 3-4 million offered by Yamaha. By the way, ducati's new contract has a huge paycut as well. Also Yamaha has not guaranteed Valentino's crew being re-hired into yamaha. This would mean Valentino would have to bring in a good sponsor to make up for the paycut and pay crew as well, this is valentino's hold up at the moment. I will say this : Spies left Yamaha due to the wilingness of yamaha to wait for Valentino's decision, a verbal offer was made to Valentino weeks before Spies anouncement. Yamaha had stalled all negotiations with Spies due to their hope of Valentino returning to fill the spot with $ponsorship.
