"no it's okay, you can go ahead and say it... he wasn't."

I actually don't think Hiroshi was that bad. I think he got a very raw deal at Gresini, then, as we have seen repeatedly in the past, the second Honda truly is a poisoned chalice. Atop of that, learning a new kind of machine, new tyres etc. I think it's understandable he had a shoddy year (NOT THAT I'M BLAMING OTHER FACTORS ENTIRELY, his results were still far too low, but I think, had he started with Ducati / Aprilia / Kawasaki and given a second season, he would've surprised a few people this year.
