Think again, Scott is not in his rookie year, and not a open rules bike either. Andrea is on a very old beast.I'd agree with most of this but would question Iannone and Redding. Scott is in his rookie year and on an open rules bike so doing pretty well considering. As for Andrea, I don't believe he has the consistency. One week he can be fighting for a podium spot and then the next he's nowhere.
I don't think he had much choice? I believe Yamaha had instructed Herve to sign Pol, Yamaha had given him a letter of intent back at the beginning of the 2013 season. Herve could have kept Cal but he would have had to cut Bradleys contract short, an option I think he put to Cal but he didn't want to do that to him, whether he would have had the Ducati contract not been on the table who knows?Crutchlow made a big mistake should have stayed one more year at tech 3. Your right his done.
