@ Marc

I think that ironing out the suspension/chassis/electronics issue will be of great benefit to the team. If they can square that away, they'll be in a good position. After all, it is the handling of the bike that has caused majority of the issues.

Looks like for this round of racing and testing Yamaha took away the factory bike from Crutchlow and gave it back to Spies.

There was rumors that Yamaha knew they'd be getting rid of Spies after this year and they're looking towards Crutchlow to move to the factory team so they secretly did the bike swap.

With Stoner now retiring Yamaha is thinking about hiring Rossi if they can convince him to not sign with Honda.

So they don't need Crutchlow and have given back Spies's factory works bike for this round.

I hate it when factories mess with their riders like this.

As long as Yamaha doesn't give the factory bike back to Crutchlow again we should see Spies doing much better (as far as speed) from here out.

I can't say if he's going to get over aggressive and do a rookie move crash out, lol.

MOTOGP is so corrupt and political.

Watch next year Honda will run Marquez because of Repsol.
The might have 3 bikes, Marquez, Rossi, and MAYBE Pedrosa.

Otherwise, it might be Marquez and Rossi.

I forgot the no stupid no rookie on a factory team rule, that means Honda may run Marquez on a satellite non factory team but give him all the factory goodies.

Factory team then:

Rossi, Pedrosa

Secret team with factory parts : Marquez on any Honda team.
