Genesio Bevilacqua, General Manager of Althea Racing:
“Many things have changed between yesterday and today and I have waited before talking simply because of these uncertainties. We remained hopeful but it was a complicated issue especially on an economic level. In the end we were able to convince everyone to find an agreement that would keep the team together and this was of course the greatest news for me. Carlos stated a while ago that he wanted to stay with us and we of course wanted the same outcome so this positive agreement has been reached with Ducati and he’ll be with us again next year, faster than before.”

Ernesto Marinelli, Superbike Project Director - Ducati:
“I am extremely happy that this agreement, which we never stopped working towards, has led to the confirmation of Carlos in the Althea team for 2012. Ducati has had to make a big effort in order for this to happen, a sign of the affection we have for Carlos, for Genesio and for the whole Althea Team, that has given us this truly incredible result, one that we hope can be replicated in future years.”

I'm Not suprised as they are probably waiting to see the 2012 rule book.

With the current 1198 romping to the championship even with the 50mm inlet restriction, there maybe a few rule changes planned to give the 4-cyls a better chance

Checa said already he doesn't think any changes will be made, ie 1098R will still be used next year
