Is Ducati Team Alstare pulling the plug leaving the door open for Feel Racing to return to the Ducati fold? GPOne.com states Francis Batta gave an interview to Corriere dello Sport, indicating his contract does not prevent him from a split and reveals some insight into what has gone wrong in 2013:
“It was a disastrous year and is not the fault of the drivers - the sharp statement of the Belgian - The bike’s development has been very slow, and the sponsors begin to abandon us. Considering that I am carrying most of the costs, I do not think there are the conditions to continue the relationship with Ducati in 2014 “ .
Feel Racing is currently the BMW factory team but it’s staff has deep Ducati roots, making a transition back to red a logical direction for both Feel and Ducati to go.
