Nicky, Just beat Dovi in the standings by the end of the year and prove to Ducati, they made the wrong choice!! Dovi only races aggressively against his teammate? If Hayden was on the same machinery as lets say Crutchlow, or Bautista, he would be in the top four every weekend. He should get Smiths, or Bautista's ride next season. One of those two should go to WSBK!

Stupid and dangerous move by Dovi, I've watched I a few times now, and I can only imagine that it was red mist because he as convinced himself (and everyone else around) that he is better than Hayden.

re: "The incident was one of the main talking points following the race"

only in the ducati garage.

the main talking point was/and is exactly what was planned for this weekend festivities (ie. Marquez Passes in the Corkscrew!). same as what was planned back for the austin weekend (ie. Marquez Tops Freddie Spencer!).

I smell a rat.

dont think dovi knew much about it if you watch carefully the front wheel is at an angle and snatches when it hits the floor sending him off line
really dont think he ment to do it

Dovi is a great rider, and a competitive person!! For him like to any other rider is importante to beat is Team m8, but Dovi will not make somethingh silly only to beat then also because he dont need to do that to beat hayden.. was clearly an incident and in the end Hayden Won at home?? well won the battle of the Ducati's.. 33 secunds of the race, are they getting older, was not Dovi that was finishing on the podium with the Tech 3 last year... I whant to find an explanation to Ducati but i can t find one to justify the existence of SUCH A BAD RED MOTORCYCLE.. Ewan McGregor should make one movie with this bike calling the movie SLOWEST with the help of the wise Filippo Preziosi to explain what is happening inside Ducati..

A racing incident. Both are great riders. Dovi has a contract, Nicky does not, and so he loses the ride. I think Cal is likely wearing red next year, as he drones on and on about access to factory equipment, but he will soon find Yamaha satellite equipment isn't so bad compared with Ducati factory gear. I'd laugh if Nicky landed on his feet in the Yamaha satellite team though I know it's a long shot.
