This is intersting. Petrux has said he's done with Pramac and that was before Giorgio's current crap performance. Did he have some kind of inside information with an eye on the factory ride or was he casting his net with the wind?
As patriotic as I am about Our Jack, I think Petrucci is the better rider. If it’s Pedro’s last year, Zarco will be his replacement unless Yamaha can keep him in a satellite team. I would speculate that Honda would even ditch Cal to give Zarco the ride.
He made his bed with Ducati and now has to sleep in it. Rossi did the same. Difference is Rossi didn’t burn his bridges. Suzuki seems to be the only option and he could live with the pay cut no problem.JLO back to Yamaha makes a lot of sense.
Or even to a satellite team, if there will be one next yr.
I think he's too set in his ways to ride something different.
The Duc has it's problems but lesser riders (Dovi, Yak w/o championships) are doing far better.
And I bet you Yamaha's thinking of swapping out Vinny. He's been way too up and down.
But with JLO's treatment of his crew and his employers, he may have screwed himself. Royally!
What would be awesome is if JLO can regain his bike and form from 2015 and compete with the front runners.
Watching him mope around, pissed off and cursing the bike is "not good for the sport" or ratings.
