I don't get why they didn't continue with Haga since he's actually ridden a Ducati, the factory one at that. May be some issues we are not aware of but Haga would've made some sense to put him back on a ducati. I hope Nitro finds a seat somewhere.

Two reasons I assume - Haga's wages are apparently high and were already being supported by Infront, while PATA wanted a young Italian rider on the bike to push its products in Italy.

Perhaps it doesn't make as much sense competitively, but a 12th place Zanetti is still probably financially better for PATA than an 8th place Haga.
