Dovi is my personal bet to join Lorenzo at Yamaha Factory next season.

Average??? Dovi has consistently been the best rider outside of the aliens for several seasons, finishing 3rd in the Championship last year. On the Yamaha, which is a bike I always thought was a better fit for him, he'll be better. He was injured during preseason, and is getting better with every race. On a works M1 I can see him as a podium regular.

savor your glory while Ben is struggling, you have been in a factory bike boosted by Seemless transmission. but you failed to beat Ben Spies. Hopefully Ben can silence the Tech3 driver from taking his seat. But if So i cant wait this guy be beaten by Ben if he ever goes back in Tech3. But for me Ben doesnt deserve to be replaced by anyone. Hopefully Ben sorted out his setups to really see what can he do in a 1000cc bike.

@ George...

So ill-informed...

Dovi is the perfect example of a certain bike just suiting a certain rider. And the Yamaha REALLY suits him, where I guess the Honda didn't suit him as much as it suits Pedrosa and Stoner...

As for Spies, I think if his performances improve as they have been, he should retain his seat next season... But if he loses his seat, it could be tight between Cal and Dovi for who will take the seat...

@bugref: failed to beat Spies? Dovizioso finished last season 3rd in the championship standings. Where was Spies? Not 2nd, not 1st, so yes, Dovi did beat him.

Look at the championship standings this season. Dovi is beating him again. On a satellite bike.

He seems to strugle to win races (3 years on a factory Honda, netting 1 wet win). Without winning races you would have one hell of a time to win the title. He seams to have peaked just short of the aliens, a bit sad.

@ Ron I reckon Dovi is SO close to being truly competitive with the 'aliens'. Only Dani really could be said to be closer to JL and CS without actually taking a WC.
I've wondered many times if Dani had got on a factory Yam whether by now he'd have 1 or more WC's. He's another where the slightly less aggressive, less edgy handling of the Yam might suit him just enough more than the Honda to make the difference perhaps?
The margins are small and Dovi is very, very good (I'm well happy that Cal can run with such an experienced and quality rider, let alone challenge him consistently on the same bike). Dovi might just be a proper challenger on the Factory Yam.
