Can't help but feel sorry for Ben. I really wonder if it would serve him better to not come back this year, get properly healed up and 100% fit, try and have a good set of pre - season tests prior to 2014 season and come back confident and all guns blazing. I hope I speak for many others when I say I would not want him to rush back with shredded confidence at best wobbling around in the midfield or worse landing on his backside again and destroying his career. Get well Ben!

he got injured from the traction not set right , has nothing to do with mindset , true confidence appears low but the crash was more mechanical and his failer to understand how it was set.

No luck, i dunno whats going on in is head or what he think about for the Future!! But after so much bad moments i really wish he can rest and be cool to think on is live.. It would be nice to wach in turning is situacion around i will say again i dont wach is performance on AMA, but i wach Wsbk in 2009 and i know Wsbk is very diferente from Motogp but aim just speacking about the personalaty of the rider.. That year 2009 Ben was a warrior somethingh amyzing to wach and he did the same in Motogp on the Tech 3 its really a pity to wach one rider like him going down.. Go Ben be that warrior again turn your situacion around, DONT GIVE UP..

I would like to personally thank Yamaha for sending Ben Spies on his way. I am sure Yamaha will be made to look like complete jokers in the next few years though, unless the tires start to get very ridiculous. Karma comes back, hopefully Jorge considers all his options well, I don't know if his pride can take knowing that hes racing in a rigged system and can only win if Marques pretends to be going slow.

Everyone peaks at some time or another and for Ben his peak has passed. I've said it before and I'll say it again- After Ben's initial shoulder injury, Pirro rode better than Ben had ridden before the accident. I think for 2014 Pirro deserves a full-time race seat. I don't anticipate Ben being re-signed.
