Ben was always just taking a care taker roll at Yamaha until Valentino worked out that he is certainly no Casey Stoner. Sure Vale will beat Ben's one win record at Yamaha in 2013, but if Ben can win one race on the Ducati that will really say something.... :)

Very fortunate not to have a bust collarbone after that kind of impact. I seem to remember he picked up an injury at about this time last year too (concussion and a cracked rib at PI). The flyaway rounds don't seem too kind to him.

Ben, you need to learn to ride like your team mate. All you have to do is stick your finger up when things go bad for you and they will stop the race.

It works for your team mate so it will work for you

the sad thing is Ben will probably score more poitns on a satellite Ducati than a factory Yamaha. But I guess thats what you get when you invest all your effort in to one rider so that he finishes no lower than 2nd the whole year...
