we all know hes fast, just this year his bike seems to be going to tatters. I have a hard time believing its his immediate crew as well, given their past history/success, at least to the point of getting owned by CRTs / back markers. Ben would be fighting for podiums (right now) at Tech 3, I am almost certain, just not happening with the new bike and factory team.

The rumour mill is gathering momentum on this one.
Spies to a factory Ducati in Pramac guise. I hope it comes to pass.
I'm optimistic that the Yamaha won't break again in the near future. The most finely honed piece of prototype GP kit it is,but as fragile as a chrystal ball.
Rumour has it that Bradl will have a factory Honda spec bike aswell for 2013.
All quiet re engine allocation and what's left in the tank for Yamaha 2012. Dani has to be quietly confident.

Your conspiracies are laughable, to say the least: is not lie he got close to the podium in the races he didn't have his bike breaking under him, is it?

Times don't lie: .8 slower than Lorenzo. Period.

I hope next season Ben goes to Gresini and not Pramac, if he's to have a chance to redeem himself.

Hard to say how he would do on the Ducati His riding style is different then any other riders in MotoGP so i guess we will wait and see if he Goes to Pramac.
Ducati are going to sell a Sh!t load of Bikes in the US!!
