Herve saw potential when he was riding 125's, and for some reason decided to sign him up to ride Moto2 with a future seat in GP. I remember reading about this at the time and thought, ok, he's good at 125's he could be the real deal.

Unfortunately Smith hasn't shown he's a front runner in Moto2. Herve had the contract and had to stick with it, along with who knows what else on the backside of things to keep Smith there. The whole situation reminds me of Yuki Takahashi and his promotion to MotoGP, that was probably done by Honda to keep a Japanese rider in the championship. Yuki, as predicted never amounted to much.

Best of luck to Smith, I have my doubts. Smith is getting a great bike, so the excuse will lay solely in his hands. Hope he doesn't injure himself trying to push hard.
