Ducati would need to convince Stoner that the Duc would be on par with the Honda that he had already declined a $15 million offer to ride. It is not obvious how they will cook up enough evidence.
This is a good point and raises the question if someone else starts having success on the Duc (let's say Dovi), why would they need to pay big bucks to put Stoner back on it?
