You can't be serious SR. Bayliss wouldn't entertain the thought.

Since the d'Atin/Pramac team has went to a Ducati satellite team they have been nothing but career killers. It where GP riders go to get there GP careers sacked.

Since 2004 I think they have only 4 podiums (all 3rd place) - Xaus had 1, Barros had 1, and Elias had 2. Someone correct me if I'm wrong.

The Factory Ducati team can barely get the bike sorted for more than one rider let alone the satellite team.

Didn't he get himself into contention for the ride after posting something like the 3rd quickest race lap time at Misano last year? A lap in which he missed out the first chicane.

Yah, but since when do keep your seat based on last years results?

Honestly, Espargaro got this seat based on potential. It wasn't anything he had actually done. He needs to deliver...just like every other GP rider. Nothing new here.

His best bet is to keep trying to crack the top 10, get on tv mixed in a couple battles with the other satellite teams and show flashes of speed, then next season look for a top ride in Moto2. He's still super young and I think he is fast enough to contend for wins in Moto2 on the right ride. Pramac may as well just change their bikes to coffins on wheels and their title sponsor should read, "Career killers"
