Because Remco is the long term investment while Joao is being shopped around by a super agent. Let's hope they don't make a clerical error and sell Almeida to Benfica instead of Bora.The only "wrong" thing I get from that interview is more mixed signals from DQS.
If they weren't expecting for Remco to blow everyone away and are proceding with caution, why take him there to fight for the GC and not just hunt some stages and get some race miles on his legs? Why have an entire team dedicated to him? Why doesn't he let Almeida have a free role at least?
The actions don't match the words.
