More rumors of returnees, today, as "European sources" are being quoted as saying that Alex Barros could return to MotoGP. His name is being linked to a ride with Pramac d'Antin for 2007. D'Antin have been permanent backmarkers this season, running satellite Ducatis on Dunlop tires, but they could be a surprise package next year, running machinery which will be very close to the works Ducatis, and using the same competitive Bridgestone tires. Barros had a mixed season in World Superbikes this year on the Klaffi Honda, invariably getting off to a terrible start, but following it up with a very strong chase through the pack, finally getting a win at Imola. He has also been linked to several teams in World Superbikes, but the problem has always been finding sponsorship.
