How exactly does the Yamaha test rider plod around the back? Katsuyuki Nakasuga had a 6th place in Valencia last year, and he also beat Barbera and Abraham in Motegi and was a tenth of second behind Hayden. He's done nothing but good things when given the chance.

Josh Hayes again for Velencia,Yamaha should reward him for making there R1 look so good all Year,Hill couldn't get the job done in BSB this season and Josh has rode last years M1 and the Circuit before.
But Yamaha should give a full Factory Spec M1 to Dovi and try to get him in front of both Stoner and Dani to help secure the championship(and by Full factory spec i Mean "Lorenzo Spec M1")
Dovi has no love for HRC and given the right bike its well known that he can tangle with Dani.

Dovi deserves that spot.

Although he has proven, in my eyes, that he is unwilling to push as close to the edge as the aliens.

Still, Dovi has out performed Cal so it should rightfully be his spot. But then again this is motoGP...

Lol why would anyone put Hayes on the bike?? You surely live on a different planet, if we are gonna put an old American on the bike how about someone who could ride it like Randy Mamola at least that would be entertaining.

Dovi doesn't have the slightest chance of riding the factory Yamaha due to being Ducati bound, why would they want any additional secrets following him, and since Dani will be ahead of Jorge in the race, they wont want another bike in the middle of them.
