Whilst you can't argue about his skill & ability, his performance has been dropping steadily over several seasons and he has blocked other more deserving emerging talent from a works seat.

Still sad to see him leave, and equally sad he will be remembered as a "nearly" man like Randy Mamola .... Just without the personality :lol: :lol:

Wasn't surprised, tbh. Too many broken bones and losing his mojo all pointed to it. Great rider and racer though, was always a supporter of him.
