Should Ducati sign Gibernau?

Should they sign him or has Rossi done the number on him with his moind games? I personally reckon he has lost the plot entirely after Sunday. From where I was sitting it looked very like the sort of sit up and run off I would expect to see on a novice trackday - not that I haven't done it myself I hasten to add!!!

Think they should give him interview over winter.
I think he has the potential but seems to suffer from lack of attention during work hours.

I'm not sure. I don't think it's as clear-cut as a straightforward 'no'. Gibernau has lost confidence and been out-psyched by Rossi no doubt, but if he got his confidence back, then I think they could do a lot worse - he has been a consistent front-runner and regular race winner over the last couple of years (excluding this one). He's the only rider to have regularly challenged Rossi, and is still pretty damn quick when he gets it together - witness his taking the pole away from Melandri at the weekend.
Bayliss was a superbike rider who never really made the grade in gp, Checa was an established midfield gp runner, Gibernau (until recently) was a consistent front-runner. On paper it seems like another step forward in the Ducati rider line-up.
Question is, will Gibernau get his confidence back, how will he adapt to the Bridgestones and the Desmosedici..?

I think it's a gamble.

Yeti,

I was looking for the option: "No 'cos he's a spent force with a brain made of custard"

but had to settle for no way.

Rgds, Rob

No way! There are a lot better riders out there, or a rising young gun like Stoner.
