The reason why Smith is in Motogp is because is Dorna compensates teams that hire riders from certain countries and Tech 3 is the biggest example of this. It's not a coincidence that Tech 3 have over the past 5 years started to consistently hire british riders, even if better ones were available. Having said that Smith is a solid rider, and i expect him to improve to the point that he is good enough to stay in Motogp. And he needs to, because at the moment he really isn't impressive at all.
