MotoGP » Dovizioso: Ducati has done an amazing job


BouncingBewbs: Ducati wouldn't be where they are without Rossi's development of the Desmo. He and Burgess set in motion another competitive machine. The same they did with the RC211V and M1.
The GP15 is Gigi Daliigna's design and he only joined 18 months after Rossi & JB left. The only thing similar to his bike and the one Rossi rode is the Desmo valves and the V angle of the engine. So no, they didn't set the GP15 in motion.

MotoGP » Aoyama called up to replace injured Pedrosa


titfortat: Why not give his seat to an up and comer like Scott Redding or Aleix Espargaro, maybe even Cal...? I'm sure all of those people would be happy to ditch their team and pay whatever fine for the chance to show what they can really do.
The issue is mainly sponsors. Cal is a Monster man, and Repsol is sponsored by Red Bull. Also, as David Emmet says, a lot of the Satellite teams rely on their riders to attract sponsors in the sense they get to meet the riders as part of the hospitality of being a sponsor. A lot of the sattellite teams would be rather put out if the factory teams kept poaching their 'star' riders.
