Ducati announces satellite Avintia MotoGP deal, paves way for Zarco
Still wondering when do we hear the final word about #2 rider at HRC?
or do we find out tomorrow when the pit garages open and see who is at the controls?
on edit- guess that answers the question.......
Love to see some Ducs in the mix. Happy for Miller this weekend. Could get Dovi up there... Then Zarco on a Ducati... Yeah
Don't see this ending well for the young Marquez, but surely Marc has to have an idea if he will be able to perform. Seems odd he would encourage his brother to be put in a position to fail.
I just can't see his results being any better than somewhere between Lorenzo and Nakagami.
“You are my little brother. You will finish behind me.......always.”
In before Rossi retires.
if there's anyone Marc would be willing to help get the Honda right, it would be his brother. Whether his brother can put his advice to good use is another thing. I don't think he'll beat his brother, but I think he will be at least be able to compete with anyone else on the Honda.
Could see Rossi, Dovi, and Crutchlow retiring at the end of 2020.
I see AM achieving Crutchlow levels of success. Flashes of speed, along with continuing his history of crashing a lot for no apparent reason. It's an exceptionally boring lineup at Repsol Honda.
Twice as many bikes for Lowes to crash at MarcVDS next year it looks like.
There's no reason Dovi would retire. Crutchlow already stated he would. Rossi can ride until a year after tom Brady retires.
We shall see. I just don't see AM as a physical of a rider as Cal. MM would know better than anyone though, so he must see something.
I'd guess that Alex will be happier on a Repsol Honda than Zarco will be on an Avintia Ducati.
There were six Ducatis in 2019, they won three races, all by the factory MissionWinnow team.
There were two Suzukis in 2019, they won two races.
I don't expect any wins by an 'independent' team next year, unless Aprilia gets lucky about what it provides Gresini.
Has it been reported that Zarco accepted the Ducati seat?
Jackass in red?
I’m amazed Zarco can walk.
He looks as though he can't get out of there fast enough.
If Ducati themselves are pushing for Zarco to take that seat there must be something they are offering Zarco in the future in exchange for riding that bike next year.
If Dovi gets replaced at Ducati which I think will happen, it is not a stretch seeing him retire rather than take a seat on a second rate bike, considering all the qualified, younger riders competing for the other top rides.
