The way he finished the season you'd think that would be enough but Mark will get even better for sure next season.
I think Yamaha made some big improvements in the last 1/3 of the year, for Jorge, anyway. Hopefully they continue that trend. Jorge's was the bike to beat in the second half of the season.
Vale is going to need to see some similar improvements for the bike to suit his personal riding style. No evidence of that happening just yet.

This is the only result needed at this point.
He has been like a sprinter with lead weights tied to his ankles for the last 5 years.
