Interview with Spies on motogp.com where he says that they're a still a long way from what they'll be racing next year, and that there's much more potential to unlock from the Yamaha. All 3 of the Yamaha riders riders complained of the front being too light under acceleration so they're not able to use all the extra power of the bike yet. Things might close up a little by Sepang if they can get it ironed out.

Not only do I predict that Spies will win the title next year with no fewer than 16 wins, but that to proceed with participating in next season's sanctioned events is superfluous and should therefore be skipped with the 2012 title trophy being presented to Ben immediately.

Thank-you for reading...

Just remember this is only testing.

Honda are in a good position to start the next season but the other manufacturers may make great strides between now and then.

See what Jorge and Ben can do on the Yam, I'd put money on them closing the gap by the first race.

I wouldn't bet against Honda domination next year though.

Bradl has shown he will be pretty useful in MotoGP, and if he's offered the ride I would urge him to take it for two reasons - Firstly he's Moto2 Champion, so why bother doing that again? (the expression that springs to mind is 'been there, done that'), and secondly... Marc Marquez.
