If they wanted another Brit, They should of put Ellison with Crutchlow..veteran rider who rode well for Airwave's Yamaha and deserves a shot on a GOOD race bike..just my thought though,and I know some will disagree

Cal's made the right choice i think. But for an all british team i would rather see scott reading take smith's seat...but obviously tech 3 must know something we don't,as smith still got the ride.I remember smith being interviewed on the bbc earlier in the season,and he said he'd been told he'd have to finish consistently in the top 5 to keep his gp perhaps tech 3 know's that they haven't giving him a decent bike this's not as if brad is going any slower this year,in fact i think his race times have improved,but so has everyone elses.So is it smith or the bike,judging by smith's team mate it look's like the bike.but who really know's..until next season who know's how smith is gonna go.

Here's one for the staticians when was the last time we had all British riders in a Moto GP Team so let's give them the support they deserve who knows what Bradley might do, you may be surprised.
I think that Cal will be more determined to get a podium and beat Dovi before the end of this season

roadking, People will disagree because you're wrong. Ellison was trounced by Camier (who we've seen is nowhere near MotoGP standard) on that Airwaves Yamaha in BSB and has done little else throughout his career. Leon Haslam is the best British rider with no MotoGP factory links in my book, competitive on everything he's ever ridden, even came close to winning the WSBK title on an aged undeveloped Suzuki. Smith's deal was done a while ago but in theory Redding would be the better MotoGP rider due to his size.

Didn't really have any other option !! But he should move up the order in theory, with Stoner and Spies gone and Dovi to Ducati gets rid of some more competition. Marques and Smith won't be a threat straight away so podiums should be possible if he gets his mind right and stops thinking he's a comedian every time he's interviewed
