The jump to Ducati was as much hubris as anything else. You take a guy with that level of skill, offer him gobs of money and tell him he can build the Ducati legacy with the new bikes and he can't say no.
He won't finish his career on a CRT or anything, but unless he slinks back to Yamaha or Honda, his winning days are done. They have been outmatched and the exotic things they did have been culled in favor of the traditional (Aluminum vs CF frame, etc). Now they are in a box their creativity can't get them out of.
