    I'm not as convinced he's the answer as they are.

    He's decent... but only in the same way Rins is.... I can't see him taking it from a decent bike into a championship contender. Leaving Rins and a teenager for development ? Hmmmm

    I get that. But you need a bike too. Are 2 youngsters the right pair? Hmmm

    Rins had a half dozen top ten finishes last year and has a podium this year. Like Cal, he needs to finish races but he's on the right side of being a solid MotoGP rider IMO.

    I think hes a great rider but i rarely see 2 relatively young and inexperienced guys developing bikes, its usually the older contingent
