Melandri And The Kawasaki MotoGP Fiasco
The year is 2006 and Marco Melandri, the future star, apparently already knows how to finish the race in style. Although he raced with a Honda back then, it was only a matter of time before the Kawasaki MotoGP won the race for his services. In 2009, it finally happened, but it did not turn out well for the young Italian. The motorcycle giant decided to pull out their assets during the same season, leaving Melandri without a team. Thankfully, Honda once again came to the rescue, and the prodigal son returned to the place where achieved the biggest success of his career (so far), a 2nd overall place during the 2005MotoGP season.
