They must have some budget for all the crashing he is going to do. Checa is inconsistently fast and STILL crashes too much, as per last round at Nurburgring.

I think the team will regret this when he has a mediocare 2011 as per when at Ten Kate.

At least hes not looking to go back to Motogp-WSB is a much more fun class.

Most of all Im amused at the team-the boss was bitching big time earlier in the year about the Ducatis inferiority compared to the 4s. Now he confident enough to sign to the marque for 2 years... Italians are so nationaly passionate they are deluded.

if you only had half a brain you would know that checa has crashed far less than the majority on the grid. Hence his position in the championship .

“We have had a great relationship with Shane but unfortunately the economics of the situation will not allow us to continue to work with him. We do not however exclude the possibility of running a second bike.”

Should we infer from this that Shakey is a little pricey?
