MotoGP: Yamaha's Andrea Dovizioso on Ducati link

Yamaha's Andrea Dovizioso admits he has had "interesting" talks with Ducati about riding for them next season and expects an announcement "this or next weekend".

Ahead of Sunday's Indianapolis Grand Prix, the 26-year-old Italian says he has not been put off by the problems that compatriot Valentino Rossi experienced with the bike.

Dovizioso currently stands fourth in the 2012 standings with 108 points, narrowly ahead of Britain's Cal Crutchlow.
