Rumours that Casey Stoner could re-join Ducati as a test rider and wildcard

Now that would be interesting

Paolo Ciabatti (Ducati Corse Sporting Director): “I can only say the truth that Casey is a hero for most of the Ducati fans. 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. 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.”

Fantastic news and a great deflection from the recent troubles… Perfect timing.
Once Caseys Honda contract expires at the end of the year we’ll know officially.
I think the new unified software will suit his natural skills.
Never thought he would return but who knows, maybe some wildcard rides.
