No one else seems to have quite the problems he has. I wonder how much decision making he has over his strategy and bike set up because little seems to be working for him.
He does seem to have gone only backwards since his move to HRC. One would have thought that by this time he would be padding his margins with regards to fuel, but as you say he may not have much latitude in that decision making. Sad that he could have such great performances on a near-privateer WR450 but find the works Honda wanting.
