From what I've been hearing, Dovi is in talks with Suzuki for next year. I can't see him backing down and accepting a satellite Honda ride, since his contract specifically says his spot will be in the factory team.
It's also not in Gresini's best interest to allow Dovi into their team. Sure, they'll have another great rider, but then they lose all control over their riders, as neither Dovi or Simonchelli would be contracted to the Gresini team, as they'd be HRC employees. I could see harboring one rider for a factory in good faith, but two is a bit excessive.
The fact that Pedrosa still hasn't been signed yet raises some questions. Why Stoner before Pedrosa, when Pedrosa is key to HRC having a sponsor for next year. Then again, Repsol still hasn't sign on with HRC again which might explain Pedrosa's lack of signing. If Respol backs off, Pedrosa can be tossed aside and Dovi kept in HRC in the factory team and avoid all of the legal issues.
But then again, that doesn't even make sense, because come 2012 when the 1000cc machines are back, the men to have will be Rossi, Spies, Pedrosa, Hayden, Capirossi, and Edwards. On a 1000cc bike, Pedrosa would be a rocket.
