Im sure this guy could do a bit better if he was on a different bike like many say, but the fact is he has always crashed. A lot. He crashes too much to be a championship contender. You could also argue his wins werent outright wins as again Ten Kate tested at Assen just beforehand and at Donnington, where he benefited from Melandris ego stopping Haslam taking the win (and the double when he brake checked him in the first race). Therefore, add to this his scrappy behaviour where he took a lot of riders out this year and I think hes underachieved (against his expectations, not his teammates) and should sit lower than 6th. I dont want the best guys to disappear to Motogp (although Rea is much better than Crutchlow), so hope Honda provides a better bike in future.
