Read that. Too bad for the title race, lets hope Pedrosa can pick it up. that said - being such a huge skeptic - it just doesn't add up to me. Stoner had stated that he was feeling better at Sach'ring and only fell off the pace due to an alleged tire problem, and Donnington was another story. Even cruising he was good for 3rd. Ducati must be beyond bummed

Wow that really sucks for him and Ducati.
I guess the one good thing to come out of this for Ducati is that they get to test ride Kallio on the factory bike before they make a final decision about Hayden next year. If the article on MotoGP matters is correct, then Ducati only has until early September to exercise their contract extension option for Hayden. If Kallio outperforms him, they might have a rethink about the second factory seat. If he doesn't outperform Hayden they will have found out without moving him upp to the factory squad permanently.

Got to hand it to you - your glass is definitely half full. This will definitely create an interesting 2nd rider battle, assuming that is Stoner comes back.

I can see why Ducati would want to take this opportunity to test Kallio as a number 2 factory rider, but part of me also really wants to see Fabrizio on the factory machine! Lets just hope he kicks some ass on the pramac machine.

Good point.
I hope the Yamaha boys really battle for the title would hate to see Rossi handed the crown:mad:

Point being, he isn't currently riding the bike and therefore is not up to speed. To drop him into the deep end mid season cold? They already have a MotoGP rider who is up to speed.

Besides, he has a job to do in WSB.
