GWS Carlos.

Spies was awesome in WSBK
He arrived as a rookie and made it look easy. He won by a country mile in spite of never seiing circuits before morning warm-up. He had the potential to be 'alien' class.
He has had **** luck and lost all confidence, so perhaps a trip back to WSBK might be good all round.
Not sure anyone wants to ride the Panigale (unless they are paid well) as its not looking like the bike to be on. I heard Checa had concerns about it when testing it last year.
But in a year or so it could all change - the rules are changed to try and keep things on an even keel (deifnately not always successfully!) If BMW leave and Aprilia focus on GP, a thin grid starts to look thinner.
