Is clearly refuted rumors that the Repsol Honda rider will remain docked to LCR Honda Gresini team.
Repsol Honda in next year's racing season is no longer using the three riders (Casey Stoner, Dani Pedrosa and Dovizioso) only two riders. The team decided Stoner and Pedrosa are maintained.
Dovizioso should move closer to the LCR Honda Gresini. Italian rider is wanted as a key rider in the LCR. Unfortunately, these desires are not met the Gresini that puts Dovizioso and Marco Simonceli are same.
That makes Dovizioso turn away from Honda and choose the Yamaha Tech 3. In the near Yamaha Tech 3 will announce a new rider to meet the 1000 cc MotoGP starting next year.
