No doubt about it. Ducati were invited and HRC/Yamaha hoped they would. AUDI/VW aborted the proposal because of the cost. Maybe its time to stop laying blame at Ducati's doorstep. VW call the shots and I don't think they give two hoots about MGP. As long as the Ducati brand's exclusivity punts sales into the stratosphere stateside,this trend will continue. I guess Preziosi saw this comming and Gobmeier now sits with the poisoned challis. More support will go in SBK's direction from now on from VW. The original D16 GP project is destined to die a natural death. Lets face it. How many VW's and Audi's are sold daily vs GP derived L-4 Desmo Ducati's. Strictly business. Anyway this was about Marquez on the L-4 HRC bike. His take on Jerez and Austin testing is telling. He sure is a realist. 9 days at Sepang is not representative. He's got his head screwed on right. Should he remain top 3 over the next couple of tests the 2013 championship is a definite 'go' for him. Like it.
