I think it's a waste of time for him. IMO ducati just doesn't have what it takes to compete with Honda or yamaha in motogp. Stoner did pretty well, but I just feel when rossi went to Ducati and failed, and Hayden wasn't happy I think that's proof enough to stay away. I thought there was talk of him going to repsol Honda?

Onda Cero: ‘Lorenzo to Ducati for 2015’


Two-time MotoGP™ World Champion Jorge Lorenzo could leave Yamaha for Ducati from the start of the 2015 season, reports Spain’s Onda Cero.

As reported by the radio station, the Mallorcan rider - who had ridden for Yamaha Factory Racing since his debut premier class season in 2008 - has already given Ducati a ‘yes’ with regards to a preliminary agreement for 2015 onwards, with an alleged offer of 15 million euros per season.

Since arriving in the premier class, Lorenzo has claimed two world titles for Yamaha in 2010 and 2012, respectively. To date, he has celebrated 31 MotoGP™ race wins.

I'm not even a fan of Ducati street bikes. They may look sweet and perform pretty well but they're just way too expensive when I could buy an s1000rr and do just as well or better for a fraction of the price. Seems like they're a company that thinks too highly of themselves, in production bikes and motogp.

You goofs, hrc is paying ducati to ruin the careers of anyone who can compete with them. Isn't it obvious?

I believe that would definitely impact the landscape for talent on the circuit.

Having JL on a Ducati would either propel him to god status if he makes it work...or knock him off his high horse...I'd prefer the latter.

Honestly, what I'd like to see more than anything is more than a couple different guys sitting on the podium every race. Let's have some variety...get the rules established so all the teams are competitive, rather than grouped.


Quality of life vs. Quantity of life. Your mileage may vary.

I highly doubt this will happen, he's a world champion and wants to leave his options open. Perhaps looking for more or other challenges? who knows. I see HRC offering him a contract to team up w Marc? now that would be a killer team!!!

PS Seagreen I love the Hayden gif btw lol. Oh I cant wait for this season to start!

It's Lorenzo's way of telling Yamaha, improve the bike and gimme some more money.

And, HRC could easily recruit Lorenzo if they wanted to, Marquez certainly wouldn't have a problem with it.

That was just an hoax:

Sorry the thing is in Spanish... But the title says:

"Claudio Domenicalli: Yes, now we have to convince Marquez too."

My friend was saying he thinks HRC will can Pedrosa and put Lorenzo on the team. I do remember reading some articles about management saying "2014 was Pedrosa's do or die year" or something along the lines of that.

I also wonder who will jump on the suzuki in 2015 and aprilia the following year.

I'm not denying pedrosa is a good rider. He is but not good enough to stay with hrc for all these years and achieve nothing for them. Give someone else a shot. I'd pick cal crutchlow. He's proven he's got some skills and can achieve pole position on the tech 3 yamaha. Given top of the line technology on the hrc I bet he could kick some ass. It's been proven. Nicky Hayden winning the championship then sucking with Ducati. Pedrosa doesn't deserve to be on the team anymore.

That's weird... I dont see them losing too much

Dani is faster than Cal, that's pretty apparent.

If hrc was to take on a new rider it would have to be a young guy, bradl maybe, even bautista. Cal is too old

Lorenzo to Ducati 2015?

Cal is the first guy I thought of because he's proven faster than bradl and others. He comes real close to rossi now that he's unfortunately getting older. And yes hrc wins a lot. But dani really isn't a threat to win the championship. If it weren't for Marc hrc wouldn't anything right now.

Dani might be faster, but he has better equipment than cal
