"Mid-way through the 2011 season, I said to Marc “If you move up to MotoGP next year, I'll have a factory bike ready for you.” "
From the boss himself...
Had he already assumed stoner was not going to race in 2012 and moved on?
If not, how was a 3rd factory ride going to be explained after the Dovi debacle in 2011?
Or, does this explain the ultimate reason for stoners "retirement"...make way for Marc?
