pull yourself together Ben!
u can do much better than this.
it is quite clear if nothing happens, Dovi would turn to Yam factory rider next year.
For Spies, he should be somewhere else perhaps WSBK again.

Its a shame Ben.. You will be kill by the comments here!! But most of then are true you are lacking performance.. At the momente Honda is top on the standings only because you dont have good results and Lorenzo can t fight alone agains Pedrosa and Stoner on points for the Team!! You have to weack up m8 or Motogp can be offer..

Theres something fishy goin on here,Spies is not this poor,either he is carrying a secret injury or he really has gone full Toseland.Yamaha USA money will be used to give Dovi factory kit+a big pay rise while staying in Tech 3 next year most likely but if Ben is still poor over the winter and isnt on the box at the first 6 races in 2013 he is gonna be a gamble even for a Wsbk team to hire him..

The only guy available that might get near Lorenzo as a teammate is Rossi but even he got beaten in 2010.

Would love to see Rossi back at yamaha but no matter how you look at it with the way Dovi is peforming there is no justification from a racing perspective for Spies to stay on a Yamaha. Underperforming is an understatement.

I used to back Spies until his passport comment aimed at Marc Marquez. The factory yamaha is the best bike on the grid, does Spies really think he is one of the best 2 riders in the world? Its clear his nationality is his only saving grace right now.

Hope he gets well soon. That said, I remember Toni Elias at Indy in 2010 have one of the most gutsy performances while terribly ill, and winning the race. Gotta dig deeper Ben!

Wow, it just doesn't get any better does it. Definitely some major voodoo going on around Spies, and even those who are lobbying for him within Yamaha are in a difficult situation now.

Still, it's hard to envisage that Yamaha will announce any demotion for him during the two upcoming US rounds. That would be uncomfortable timing indeed.
