Looking forward to seeing the American "Ben vs. Nicky" and Italian "Iannone vs. Dovi" rivalries on supposed "equal" machinery.

Even if Ducati isn't at the front - which is very likely - these inner duels will provide some good entertainment.

An important point in the contract b/w Ben Spies and Pramac Ducati is no engine failures, broken swing-arms or cracked sub-frames. Sorry Yamaha but you suck. Good luck to Spies, to see him stay in the MotoGP grid is great news for the fans.

said it before and i'll say it again:

How toxic must Yamaha MotoGP environment be that Spies leaves the (arguably) best bike on the grid for the B team of worst (non-CRT) bike on the grid? Rossi also walks from Yamaha MotoGP after giving Yamaha their first title in almost 20 years. What happened to that picture of Rossi bear-hugging Furusawa and laughing? No laughing at Yamaha now, just top quality riders running away all under bad circumstances.

Seriously, what is going on inside Yamaha? If your star players cant wait to get out the door and ride a lame duck of a bike instead, then the bigwigs back in Japan better take a long hard look at their race team management and do a little pruning.
