Altea have not walked out on Ducati far from it they had already re-signed Giuliano on the basis of providing him with a works supported Ducati again like this year.
Ducati have chosen to end supply to Altea although if Altea wish they can purchase a customer spec bike just like any other team.
Carlos Checa is contracted directly to Ducati but was placed in Altea in the same way Simoncelli was contracted directly to HRC but placed in Gresini.
To clear up one area before people bring it up.
The homologation for the 1098/1198 Ducati has run out now it is no longer in production so any team that chooses to use it next year would have ro renew it at their own expense and that is one hell of a lot of money.
