ouch!

Ducati: Petrucci should be 'smart' and find 2019 factory ride elsewhere

".....the manufacturer's priority is to maintain its current works line-up of Jorge Lorenzo and Andrea Dovizioso, whose current contracts both expire at the end of the year....."

that seems amicable to me. its great that Duc is straight-up w/ Petrux, telling him they plan to keep their riders. that way he has plenty of time to find the ride he wants.

the Jerez Moto2/3 test wrapped up. I totally forgot that Jerez was repaved after last years GP round. so its not that surprising that some riders are under the lap records since the weather isnt too cold.

Moto2 is AM, Pecco, and Binder on top. Joe Roberts didnt go faster on Day3 and finished 2.5s back for the weekend.

Tony Arbolino went fastest in Moto3, which is surprising cuz he only scored 2pts last year.

Iannone's manager dropped him today because he said that the maniac is too much drama for him. He said he is going to focus his efforts on grooming Bastianini

on one hand, its a standup thing for ducati to be straight up with him, but on the other hand, it being so public is not good for Petrux, since this will definitely being factored in with any deal he gets in the future. Other than Rossi, any rider that is more or less rejected by a major manufacturer is not going to reflect well on them, regardless of the situation. i think if Danillo had a level of talent that was on par with jorge or dovi, they would make room for him.

Agreed.. I think it is the right way to approach this.

Surprising news on the Maniac. Maybe if he changed his nickname to "Insomniac" they would have less drama

you're saying Duc would field 3 bikes in the factory team if Petrux was as good as Dovi/Jorge? really?

Roberts is definitely going to struggle at several tracks this season. New team and new chassis. He's young and needs a full season in Moto2 to get his footing.

I do. or at least i think that they wouldnt have been as forgiving with Jorge's terrible performances last year if it werent for the ad revenue he brings in by being spanish. at the very least, they should be giving petrux the same level of support that the factory boys are getting

regardless of my speculations, i still say that being so public with the whole "hey danillo, find another manufacturer because seats taken!" definitely hurts petrux more than it helps him. it shouldve been a closed door discussion.

im surprised hes more than twice as far behind compared to the previous test at Valencia. NTS has already raced CEV, so they have data for both tracks. there shouldn't be huge setup issues. but something def didnt work well.

Maybe they recently hired some of the AGR crew?

Is there any reason not to ride Zarco's sack this season?

After the Thai test, that could change for Jorge....guy is just not improving on the Ducati and for his own sake, he should try to get a Japanese bike.
