    I understand that there is more than just rider ability that goes into selection, especially with the satellite teams but I'm pretty gutted that neither Baz nor Barbera look like they're going to be retained. Sure, Hector has had a tough time adapting to the upgraded bike but he's shown he's proper fast when he gets tuned in and Loris has had three top tens and looked really good. 

    Is it really all down to money? (I think that may be a rhetorical question)

    Abraham has proved himself to be a legitimate 3rd tier MotoGP rider, so good to see him back.

    Too bad Baz is being replaced by an inferior rider (and even worse, potentially being replaced by a Belgian).

    How is Rabat still in the top class? He must be bringing funds to the team. He has not gelled with the big bikes at all.
    Bradley on the other hand seems to not get along with the KTM. The Tech3 Yamaha suited him and he got results. I must say that I am on the fence if he and Kalio switch positions. Kalio, IMO, should have gotten another shot on a GP bike and I would be glad to see him make a return.

    With that said.... could Brad get on another bike? A Ducati or a Honda before being sent to testing duties?
    I would like to see what he could do on a bike other than the KTM

    I disagree. Moto GP is chaos, dictated by whatever Michelin decide to turn up with, so there is no proper order of talent regularly finishing where they should.
    In WSBK Rea and David's are usually out in front because they are the best, beating their team mates on the same bike most weeks and always giving a good race. It's not their fault Yamaha, Honda and Apprilia don't put much effort into it.
    The reverse grid is an idiotic idea though often ruining what should be a good second race.
