He hasn't won a world championship. Which, I think, is very much the point of going to Europe and racing in the FIM MXGP championship.

What I understood from Suppo is that Stoner would be finishing in Baylissth. E.g. still pretty good, but these people don't ride to finish in the top ten.

It's not completely impossible. However, I think the fact that it is also run by Dorna would put him off. I'd be less surprised to see him suddenly turn up on the Australian MX scene.
