Here are some interesting snippets of information.
Rossi on debut (2000 on a 500cc 2-stroke Honda) - 2nd in championship ahead of the likes of Max Biaggi, Alex Barros, Gary McCoy, Carlos Checa, Loris Capirossi, Alex Creville (the reigning WC finished 9th that year).
With 10 Podiums (2 Wins) and 3 DNF's
Stoner on debut (2006 on a 990 4-stroke Honda) - 8th in the championship ahead of the likes of Toni Elias, John Hopkins, Chris Vermeulen.
With 1 Podium (no wins) and 6 DNF's...he was pretty wild that year!
2006 was the year that Rossi lost the championship to Hayden...which would've happened sooner had Pedrosa not taken his team mate out the previous round.
The next year Stoner went to Ducati and the rest is history...
