Jumped off the best bike onto the best bike. Dovi is a poor mans Dani Pedrosa-He is consistently up there but unlike Pedrosa never really a threat to win a race.

He would make a great no.2 rider for Lorenzo in the factory team, but as has been said many times there is little difference between the factory yamaha's and tech 3 bikes so he would probably get the same results.

Good one Dovi. As predicted you have become the no 1 Tech 3 rider, with some ease. Crutchlow not slow but neesd to keep his trap shut until he gets a result - not a "potential podium". CC makes too many mistakes and seems more suited to WSBK or WSS or even Moto 2 where I think he would go really well.

Well done to Andrea! As much as a big Ben Spies fan I am, I still believe that Dovizioso deserves the factory Yamaha next year much more than Spies does. Even though he has had food poisoning this race, in my opinion he still isn't up to scratch for the factory bike next season. I doubt that Yamaha Factory Racing would let him go, but if they did I doubt that he would go back to Tech 3 like his debut season - maybe be would get stuck on a Ducati!!

Dovizioso to Factory Yamaha :)

Good ride miles ahead of other yams but superstar on a factory bike. Dont think it will get him into Factory yam team cos americans can stay as long as they want with useless results. Something to do with the surrender treaty in WW2 maybe.
Hope they send a top spec bike to tec3 next year.
Cal would have beat him if he could have got past etc etc blah blah.
