What planet are you from mate? McFadden is brilliant. He's achieved results better than Staring got last year. Inexperienced, definitely, but I don't see your grounds for calling him a human battering ram.

I think Staring deserves the ride, but understand why they'd want him to keep scoring to maybe win Superstock this year.

Don't understand the decision, Mercado had a quite good season, he's not worse than Salom who is much more experienced and was second in Supersport.
And McFadden was promising too. Maybe Pedercini decided to change him because he ended Barrier's race last time. Staring have chance to win the title, so his teammate taking out rivals' is a little bit dubious.
The best would have been not changing anything. I'm curious who will they find for Superbike.
