Who knows how competitive the Tech 3 Mistral chassis has been through the season compared with the FTR, Kalex or the 2012 Suter for that matter? Tech 3 haven't done as much testing as some other teams, particularly one that everyone can mention. At the start of the year, quite a lot of people here were saying that Redding would leave Smith for dead but no doubt they were just part of Redding's "well oiled publicity machine." Smith has outperformed his team mate(s) at most races this year. After being forced wide and crashing out on Sunday he remounted and rode to the end. The fallers also included plenty of non-UK riders, including the new world champion, so full marks for effort. It might help if Crash was able or willing to get more insight into the team effort behind racing to give better understanding of why a rider's peformance can vary dramatically. Although riders have their favourite and bogey circuits, when they have a bad weekend it's not because they've forgotten how to ride
