They got the worst bike from grid, so it was a decent result. Ianonne is in his first year, but Spies will beat Ducati factory this year, and 100% he will replace Hayden next year.

A good result given the condition Spies is in once fully recovered he will be on the tail of his team-mate and the works Ducati riders. As for him taking Hayden's ride next I think its very possible it can happen but first he has to beat his rookie team-mate.

Lorenzo's race simulations are going to become the norm.

If ducati's riders had a chance to do race simulations they would have been better physically prepared (except Spies).

To find out you have arm pump problems in the race sucks.

Really hope spies is able to get that bike on the podium sometime this year. This is ducatis best collective effort in gp, namely involving the satellite team and getting them full spec bikes and what not. Really pumped for whats to come from ducati this year

Spies is a hero.
After that horrible fall on practice, he went back took the spare bike and went on the same night for qualifying like real men do. Hats off.
