The logical thing is for him to go to WSBK with Ducati.
Nicky might not agree. I think he will do all he can to stay in Moto GP.
I did wonder if contract negotiations didn't account for his sudden teammate besting form.

I am pretty sure Cal and Nicky both said they pushed a little too hard and that is why they went down. Bautista (I haven't read what he may have said) almost looked like he pulled the front brake and bailed to avoid taking Rossi out two races in a row.
