Remember that race at Valencia where Spies finished his Yamaha career and got on the podium...? Nope, neither do I. Isn't the fact that Ben had to miss the final two races last year more than enough evidence to show that Yamaha were right in sacking him? Ben's had three seasons on a Yamaha, more than enough for him to show what he can do. Enough is enough, Yamaha can't afford to have him finishing behing the Tech 3s while crashing every other day. At best, and I put emphasis on at best, Spies has shown he is only a mid-field rider. That's just not good enough for a factory seat. Yamaha will not settle for another Colin Edwards.
