spies belongs in gp over bautista, barbera, abraham and all the crt riders. if you're in the premier class for more almost 3 years and don't have a single podium (sure bautista got a pole but still), you don't deserve another year

I can understand a Rider having bad luck but why do all these Bike related problems only happen to Spies's Bikes?? Jorge hasn't had one problem other then when he got speared by Alvaro...Its just plain weird!
Honestly i dont think I'd let his Crew tune my ride on lawnmower.

I can't imagine what is going on in Ben's head. Despite his frustrations and bad luck, quitting a top team, if not the top team, to go to a satellite bike makes no sense to me. The atmosphere in his garage must be thick with tension. I would much rather see him in WSBK at this point.

I understand your point m8.. Its really *** to wach one year like this!! But i still say the same, Ben has been with bad luck only, yamaha its a professinal Team that are just trying to Win if its possible 1 and 2 places.. Lorenzo is very tuff rider and number one rider all people him Yamaha worck 100% on that bike still he can have problems to but this year they are really doing great job for Lorenzo.. Spies had been with some troubles that are a bit strange for the level of Yamaha but other problems has been caused by Spies some mistakes and some bad luck moments to him.. They saw the clucth and was nothingh wrong.. its not any Yamaha failure saddly was other mistake..

I hear yah..but I would hope that at this level clutch plates would be replaced before the Race started,And if the Clutch was slipping there had to be signs of slippage on the plates.
I still think he has a lousy crew.

MotoGP is the top of the tree...WSBK is for has beens.
Ben owes it to himself to take another slice at the
cake and prove to himself what he is made of. He is given to being over cautious and slackening off in tricky conditions which must have angered his employers. He has the speed. He needs the determination of a Stoner. But his life now outside of racing might trump any idea of an all out commitment.
