Nobody has mentioned the possability that Simo was probably much cheaper to employ then Dovi so long as they were gonna have a third factory Bike either way, but I think there were many factors in Hondas decision.

Either way, good luck Dovi.

Unfortunately Dovi has had several years on the factory full spec Honda and won one race. At Honda when in the factory team that simply is not good enough. The Tech 3 team is the best non factory team out there, however that means you will be racing for 7th and 8th at best every week. A good rider but not the on the same level as the other Repsol boys.

Dovi got no real help at repsol honda as pedrosa's manager runs the team + repsol is spanish = pedrosa got the good stuff till stoner came into the team this year and is making pedrosa look ordinary, dovi has consistantly backed stoner up while pedrosa has spent more time off work than riding not scoring points etc so he should have been the one to go but as he's spanish thats unthinkable in a spanish backed team. hope dovi goes well on the yam and get the results

Dani wins races and Dovi doesnt,end of......rca.

And how many races has Sic won then?
People are basing their opinions on what Sic MIGHT do in the future.I prefer to look at what riders HAVE done.And the simple fact is Dovi is by far the more consistant rider of the 2.Dovi has relentlessly pulled in the points over the last 2 years whereas Sic has not.I still believe that Dovi has been well and truly stitched up by Honda in favour of someone who MIGHT win races in the future.But i think it is more likely that he will NOT win any!
I will be chuffed if Dovi finishes ahead of Sic next season.I am not hating on Sic by any means,but i do think he is hugely over rated.
