Although he is 3rd in the championship he has never looked like a championship contender and this year's Honda is good.
He has only beaten Stoner and Pedrosa to the line once each this year (barring retirements and non starts).
I can see why they are letting him go from the factory team.

Hard to see why they are keeping Simmo on on a factory bike though- unless he's bringing a lot of sponsorship.

I for one think Yamaha might be the better option for him,seen as a smoother rider . Wether this will push him either sense or keep him in the usual places as Colin did before, will belong to everlasting dilema: rider vs bike . The interseason testings will bring some clarifications as usual.
