What i see here is that they take a potential podium rider and expecting good results, but when it went in the fuel issues they qote "well we are only here to learn this year and going for the big win next year" only after a few stages and that is not so fun for a rider that really thought that he could go for the win..
Don't forget they signed Helder and others over 6 month ago with a long term plan - we don't know what that was, Helder does.
