I think you have to judge Rossi in isolation and not against the shortcomings of other riders. Tires / parts and setup is another issue for him. Fabio will get a factory next year. But with who .

Theres no factory bikes up for grabs next year unless Lorenzo gets the flick.

Fabio will get better gear next year from Yamaha and go probably into the factory team the year after when Vinales takes off to Ducati

Honda have put all their eggs in the MM basket, it's almost unrideable for anyone else. While that works I can't see them changing tack.
Alberto Puig has basically said the same thing but still for Lorenzo to finish 40 seconds behind Zarco who hadnt ridden the bike before is a disgrace of the highest order and I cant imagine Honda being that impressed of paying all that money to a bloke who is behind someone in the championship who was sacked by one manufacturer and ridden one race on a bike a year old

George is very very injured too, but he's struggling with confidence

The Honda is a **** to ride, simple. George has a totally different style to Marc too.

Honda would pay Lorenzo triple to produce the shit results for no other reason than to make sure he's not racing against them for another manufacturer.

It took longer than most expected for him to get the hang of the Duke. But once he got going, he was the best rider for the period from the Italian to Austrian GP. Took pole in Britain, but the race got cancelled. Then another two consecutive poles after that at Misano and Aragon. I forgot what happened at Misano, but he ended up really hurting himself, and it affects him now.

Had he been fit and in a Ducati this year, i'd have no doubt that he'd be leading the championship or be just behind Marquez.

It's kind of sad that the series moves on from PI the following week. Still haven't settled down form them being here, and they're already over there.
