Tut tut Yamaha not good enough. On the same lap i believe that Stoner passed Lorenzo for the lead.

Never been a big fan of Spies but this has to be one of the uncanniest seasons for any motorcycle racer that i have ever witnessed

Don-R...lets not forget that Spies is not leaving Yamaha by choice. He is leaving because Yamaha don't want him.

He says he's sick of it, and im sure Yamaha feel the same too.

This is inexplicable.

A broken swingarm (or mount) on a grand prix motorcycle manufactured by the factory themselves?

Is there a conspiracy at Yamaha to kill Spies?

Broken / cracked subframe - Rear tyres with huge chunks of rubber missing from it - and now a broken weld on a swingarm mount?
