The point that I would like to make is that JT is not the only rider in the field who should not be on a MotoGP bike. Besides the top 4 who are in there every week and then the next 4 who are always the next four... there is always a group of riders that never get in the top ten but seem to have been hanging around in MotoGP for years. To pick on one rider constantly is a bit unfair. To be in this championship you must have something that someone noticed once and if JT is to leave after just 2 years then maybe there are also others that need to go and let some of the more tallented 250 riders in (such as Hiroshi Aoyama).

Aleix Espargaro 13th! Rode the bike for the first time a week ago. Seriously impressive and seriously embarrassing for those behind him.
