there was really never any doubt about this, only a shame he couldnt finish on the top step of the podium, hopefully he has a team that can take care of him in the future, thats all he needs is a competitive bike/team to back his talent.

Why would he go to sbk? Not trying to be mean but he has shown that he can only be competitive in wss. He went to sbk previously on a good team and was a bust. He went to moto2 and was a bust. As long as was doesn't create a rule to force him he is where he is best suited and should probably stay there. And please I hope no one starts any motogp talk about him cause that would be dumb.

Others though not a big fan of his, congrats on another title

riders are only competitive when they are given the opportunity. There are lots of riders who do not get the same chances and might actually be better riders. You will never know, because you watch tv and assume that the best riders ride in MotoGP and only the best riders get the best lap times which is not the case. You need sponsorship and a good team/bike to make it happen otherwise you will be a nobody most often the time.

Professional motorsports is about making money, its not about giving the best the best opportunities.
