Wow . I didn't realize his frustration caused such consternation among the Italians, I'll have to go back and watch that again. Where would he go if he quits? Would Yamaha want him back? No way they're gonna let Vinales go, and Rossi ain't leaving until Rossi chooses to leave, he's an ambassador for the whole sport.

Sweet!!
In fact, why not just leave GP altogether.

It'll be better for it.

Jorge has plenty of money; he could afford to take a pay cut and a chance on a new bike. If he and Ducati part ways, I'm sure Suzuki, Aprilia, or KTM would be glad to use him.

My money would be on Suzuki. I don't know if Aprilia or KTM have pockets deep enough to beat Suzuki in a bidding contest.

KTM is trying to punch above its weight, and would likely lose a bidding war. Aprilia, however, is part of the much larger (and richer) Piaggio group, so they could make a serious bid if the parent company thinks it's important.

Don't you think this might be a little premature after only two races?

Yes, that's my count - 2, and he hasn't ridden enough laps to get to know the bike.
