@ CRT I'm not arguing. I'm not even saying that Dovi IS the man to take Ducati back to the top for sure. But I do think he's the right man for them right now to help restore Ducati as a marque that an ambitious, talented and successful young rider might seriously consider as a viable career step once more. Why? Simply because Dovi is NOT seen as a super-star. So where any success VR got would be attributed to VR not the bike, any successes Dovi gets will see the bike getting some credit for the achievement, rather than just all the blame for any shortcomings. Its all a matter of perception for the average fan - with the same result and outcome in a race, Ducati will always come out of it looking better with a Dovi on board than a Vale because of how both riders are (or at least were) perceived by so many. That's my point.
