    True. Look at Dovi. He was nowhere on the Repsol Honda.........
    I find tinsel very distracting.

    I think his body is too fragile for GP racing. Seems he gets hurt a lot, I'd bet on a Valencia or Sepang toss from the Duc that limits his pre-season testing.

    Fragile? You saw that crash at Le Mans he walked away from, right?

    Spot on PP. He's consistently beaten his team mate when he's not beating himself up. It'll be interesting to see how things go next year. With Nakagami coming into LCR I think it will status quo at Marc VDS.

    Are you saying when both are healthy you predict he will be beating Petrucci regularly?

    I am all for patriotic bias but let's get real.

    Miller is contracted directly with Ducati, not Pramac. He will be aboard a GP17 while Petrucci gets the GP18.

    If Jackass can excel somehow maybe he could end up as JLo's factory teammate? I'd pay money to see that! Jack would be an excellent rock in Lorenzo's boot.

    No idea why Ducati made this choice.

    Miller deserves to be in Moto2.

    Open up some seats for people that are much more deserving.

    Where did I say that. His team mate that he is beating is Rabat. Danilo will be much harder to beat and not just because he will be on a newer bike.

    Danilo will be on the 2018 bike. Miller on the 2017.

    That is why I asked it as a question.

    But given that Miller is on this year's bike he already has a built-in reason for next year.

    2009 finished 5th overall, Had Rossi - Lorenzo - Pedrosa and Stoner in front of him, not a bad showing to be fair.

    Petrucci has the same number of wins as Miller has dry weather podiums.
