MotoGP: Gibernau tests Ducati at Mugello

Quote:
FORMER GRAND Prix front runner, Sete Gibernau, has been busy testing for Ducati again at Mugello circuit in Italy.

Sources reported last month that the Spaniard was back on the MotoGP scene, after Gibernau was spied testing the GP8 for Ducati.

Sources also say the former championship runner-up is the first choice to replace Ducati's Marco Melandri, as the talented Italian has failed to produce any significant results this season.

Melandri has been given two races to prove he's worth keeping in the team, and from what we've seen of him so far this year you'd better not hold your breath. Despite his poor form, rumours flying around the paddock reckon that Kawasaki may be interested in Melandri to replace an injured Hopkins.
Get Melandri out of there
the man can ride, just not a Ducati

man i really though that melandri was going to rule on the duc but oh well. I though he was moving to Kawasaki even for the next round, prolly Ducati haven't decided who they pick.

It would be great to see Sete back in the mix of things! Those races back in 2004(i think it was) were amazing between him, max, and rossi!!!

I say, move Melandri to a "test" position, for now and lets see what Sete can do.

I'd like to see what he's got left

Cut Melandri free,
his heart isn't in Ducati

To Marco's defense: the rumors are that the ducati is difficult to ride. He might be fast on a kwak?
