Yep.

Although, not too sure who pays the replacement...VR maybe? After all, it was his call.

May look quite different in a week if the Movistar rumor is true.

So why doesn't JB stay on and work with another young rider, such as Pol Espargaro?

"Once I was a father figure to a young rider, now I'm more like a grandfather figure. Look, after 34 years I'm very happy with where I am and what I've achieved. The journey with a rookie MOTOGP rider can be long, maybe 5 or 7 years."

What obligations does JB have to
Yamaha, who have him on ice for this season?

" I've received no indication that either Yamaha Europe, or Yamaha Japan want me to do anything. But you never know. I may get the call to plug a hole as the season unfolds, but any role offered would have to be something both Yamaha and I agree upon"

Taken from a local interview, last week.
Thanks for the clarification, BOOT-y.

They may be slow and they may behave badly, but there is no denying that the Ducati GP bikes look absolutely stunning.

Stoner and Burgess would never work together. Too much bad blood there.

Stoner would certainly turn it down in less than the 80 seconds it took JB to fix the handling problems of the Ducati.

This from the man who said Ducati's problems were the result of a 90 degree V four.

MotoGP lost a lot of personality when Simoncelli died. But it did not lose a future champion.[/QUOTE]

I used to think that, the way he would go out for only a few laps during practice, but I misjudged that. He knew what he was doing, and no amount of practice laps were going to fix the Ducati's front end feel.

As for the retirement, I don't think it's laziness so much as latent asperger's. S'fine, though, his riding was great while it lasted.

Too funny, Nicky's old upper fairing is in the background.

Sounds like how Hayden felt when he got booted from Honda

Good eye! As well as Nicky handled the duration of his time at Ducati, he has to be pretty pumped to get that weight off his chest.
