If people such as Jeremy Burgess, Alberto Puig, Lucio Cecchinello had already recognised Stoners obviously immense talent, I very much doubt he would have gone without a factory ride for long at all.
It's quite possible he could have won a title as a privateer were he to get a honda or Yamaha ride in 07 or 08. Who knows it's quite probable that his Ducati career was responsible for 3 less titles than he did get, which would mean two less for Rossi and one less for JL?
More probability than possibility I reckon, although George has never ridden the Ducati, maybe he's another natural like Stoner?
All speculation but not beyond the realms.
