"The future for Ducati? I'll go out on the limb and say Jackass and Zarco at the first team in 2021, and Peco and Sum Nhu Gy at Pramac, and the rest, who knows, at Avintia or whatever." Jack? Yes for sure, in place of Petrux (unless he simply lights the world on fire this year). As for Dovi, I don't know how a guy that has only been beat by MM in the WC is going to loose his seat that easily. Zarco has more natural talent and could theoretically get the job, but that's assuming he can hold it together. Dovi is a whole lot more solid when it comes to that game.

Look, I loved the kid when he won teo Moto2 champs in a row and smashed Rossi on an old bike in MotoGP. BUT after the debacle in LeMans when he crashed he's been on a downhill slope, pressure seems to be his worst enemy. He was practically invisible in 2019, only if it wasn't for him to throw his toys out. Does he deserve this chance? I guess so when you have this much backing ut he better put that Duc on the podium or we'll see someone else in 21.

How long will Dovi last in the factory Ducati seat . . . hmmmm . . . lemme see here . . . Miller, Peco, JZ and Petrucci, and a cast of several guys (of the right size) coming out of Moto2 and 3 . . . Woops! how long can Petrux last!!  If only JL hadn't torpedoed himself with his attitude at Duc and his crashes on the Honda . . . but he was only at Honda to strengthen the position of Marquez, and he knew it.  Oh well . . . the circumstances of his own manu-fracture rendered him past his "use by" date. The future for Ducati?  I'll go out on the limb and say Jackass and Zarco at the first team in 2021, and Peco and Sum Nhu Gy at Pramac, and the rest, who knows, at Avintia or whatever.

There is now a very steady production line of young talent being developed in lower classes only to bottleneck at the GP level. Is it not time to consider allowing some of these younger riders through to have a go, versus rehashing the guys that have not been able to take it to 93 on various bikes, just to keep them in the series?

"The front of the mid-field" -- I like that.  That's something to aspire to, eh?  Yes, I know he didn't mean it that way.  For sure that isn't his aspiration.  It was just a fact, and a step along the direction Abiteboul knows he must move.  What could he say.  Personally, I just would not like to identify with "the front of the mid-field" in any of my efforts, and would have put the truth in a different way if I could.  Apparently Abiteboul couldn't.
