WSBK » Melandri: I’m used to such situations…

Karma's a bitch eh Marco? First you knock off Haslam, to ensure he doesn't win to spoil your first-to-win-on-a-BMW party, then you oust him from the team, despite the fact he was runner up in the series but moved to develop BMW in to a race winner, all to ensure your #1 status in the team.

It is of further note that Kawasaki utilize the same idea on their ZX-14 but NOT on the outright sportsbike ZX-10R. This suggests they believe it wont work for the pinnacles of racing.
