Could you imagine how happy Honda would be to win a MotoGP AND a Moto2 title in the same season? Er...wait...what?

Strong rumors that Lorenzo will have a two year contract with Yamaha with an opt-out clause after one year, and Vinales to Suzuki, to be announced soon.

With Dovi or Crutchlow likely to take the remaining Suzuki seat (I'd guess they'd prefer Dovi's quiet professionalism), A. Esp. rumored to be in line for a two year contract at Ducati.

What about Forward Yamahas? It's Edwards last season and if Espargaro will leave for the Ducati, two rides (quite competitive also) will be free...

So you're saying next year won't be Ducati's year?

I did happen once.

The red one pays about 10 times as much (at least).

Yes, but Cal didn't have to use his own money to get out of a contract as Aleix did. For him it was just about some Brembos and that's it!

Dovi and Vinales to Suzuki, Crazy Joe and A. Sparagus to Ducati, Cal all alone by the telephone?

I think you'll see Cal go to Suzuki (much to Ducati's relief) and Crazy Joe move up to the Factory squad. Dovi will stay put.

My hope for 2015 is Dovi & Crazy Joe at Ducati and Crutchlow & Vinales at Suzuki.
