Potential Ducati test role and MotoGP wildcard for Stoner
Ducatis Sporting Director has neither confirmed nor denied the rumours
Stoner back in 2010 with the Ducati Team.
RETIRED MotoGP rider Casey Stoner is rumoured to be re-joining the Ducati Team as a test rider with a potential return to MotoGP in the form of a wildcard.
Ducati Corse's Sporting Director Paolo Ciabatti has responded to rumours that double MotoGP World Champion Stoner may be returning to the team with whom he won his first World Championship title with in 2007.
'I can only say the truth that Casey is a hero for most of the Ducati fans,' commented Ciabatti.
'He brought many many race wins and a fantastic world title in MotoGP, the only Ducati title in MotoGP in 2007.
'So obviously after that he showed he could be a winner also with Honda, he currently has a contract as we understand until the end of this year with Honda as a test rider.
Concluding, but not confirming Stoner's return, Ciabatti said: 'Obviously it would be an honour for us to work with Casey again and we approached him to know what his thoughts are for the future. We’ll see how it goes.
'As I said, for Ducati it would be great to be able to work with Casey again as a brand ambassador and a very special test rider.'
