Understand Marc VDS' point of view - a lot of money being spent on Loi and no results in return (except Argentina's 4th) but as a rider it's hard when the pressure is on you, everyone is looking at you to perform. Even more so when the team have been so public about their displeasure of Loi's results.

That pressure can somewhat destroy - for want of a better word - a riders focus and distract them from their job at a vital time. Just look at Smith this past weekend, 5 crashes in 3 days.

he may not have got the rc250gp but bartholemy stated they had spent tens of thousands buying every factory part available to put it on a par with the factory boys, the fact is his results got worse with a "better bike" that he asked for, it is a short time to give but he was warned and they gave him what he asked for maybe if he hadn't blamed the bike he might of got more time, wayne ryan would be a good replacement

Yes the pressure is on, this is Grand Prix motorcycle racing. 17 years old or not if you can't handle the pressure and perform well then you don't deserve to be here. There are hundreds of kids out there who would welcome the pressure and perform well so it's time for the team to move on. He had a shot, thats far more than most kids get. There's nothing unfair about it

re: "So after some conversation he said it was the bike which was not good. So we gave him another chance and changed bike [from Kalex KTM] to KTM for Assen and Sachsenring, but still there was no result.”

fairplay.
