@ pakundo ... he's on a customer spec Yamaha.
There will be at least 8 factory spec Japanese bikes in the field & 4 customer spec Hondas which might very easily turn out to be better than his Yamaha ... until we see what transpires next year, i think your expectations are a little unfair!
Aleix & Colin might only be able to fight for 13th with that bike. & IF (admittedly a big "if") Ducati get things right it could be 16th!

@ pakundo

Theoretically on equal machinery ... or on the bikes they will be riding in 2014?

On equal machinery I'm guessing Aleix would be faster.

Next year i suspect the customer Honda will be better than the customer Yamaha ... so Scott should have the advantage.

The irony for me is that Pol will probably be on the ride Aleix has earned ... that doesn't seem quite fair.

Good on you, Colin. Still got some speed, and when he does leave MGP his unflinching candor and wit will be missed. I hope the Yammie is as competitive relative to the factory bikes as the new Honda is, should give us some really good racing among the "non-aliens".
