No idea. He is under contract so i would think he is gonna get paid regardless of what he does

They should have taken him and put him on a WSBK instead of Tamada

Maybe he had that option but wasn't willing to take it.

Good possibility of that too. I think it would be a bad career move not to race if he does indeed have the option of doing so with the motoGP team

Contrary to what Melandri stated about Hopkins opting out because money was too important, I think Hopkins was probably thinking more of his racing future. Sure, Melandri has nothing to loose. Given his awful Ducati season, if he didn't race this year on something, he'd be all but forgotten by next year. Hopkins, on the other hand can't afford to just go out there and be a backmarker for the leaders and mid-pack guys, or his Motogp career would likely be over at year's end also. Who knows, maybe he'll fall into something better next year, or at least wsbk. He may even luck into a ride by this season's end. Best of luck to both of 'em though.
