Interesting...I didn't know they gave Sete the boot either. Good job on picking up Stoner though...if he can learn to stay on his bike, he will definately be a contender for the championship. I think in a couple of seasons, we're going to be talking about Stoner, Pedrosa and maybe Melandri battling it out at this time of the year.
In defence of Bayliss (not being able to ride a MotoGP bike), the time he spent on the Ducati GP team was when that bike was at its worst. They, along with Honda, had a good first season (when 500s and 990s were both running together) but then it seemed as though the development of that bike went haywire. It wasn't until this season, when Loris was really able to wrangle that beast in to get consistent top finishes.
Bayliss could ride the first gen. Ducati, but the problematic second gen. bike and the RCV gave him trouble. perhaps he might do well with the sorted out gp6? i'd be interested to see him out there again.
