The performance of Smith yesterday, was where he is expected to be. With or without a finger injury. Thats the best he ever will do in MotoGP. Considering riding a prototype. On a CRT he will be getting 16-19th positions. I am absolutely NOT a Smith hater. I do not even know him, so why should I hate him?. Thing is, I am looking at it objectively. As a big YAMAHA fan. And then I wonder. It seems that the contract between Tech3 and Yamaha expires at the end of this year. Smith has a contract with Poncheral (Tech3) and not with Yamaha. I assume that whenever Poncheral wants to secure another 2 yearsback up from Yamaha, Yamaha can force him to take another pilot as Smith. That is what most probably will happen. Maybe a mistral frame with a M1 engine for Smith next year?
