Good interview, but let's not place all the blame on Yamaha for putting the eggs in the Lorenzo basket, I would have done the same, the tech 3 guys probably had the same bike as Spies if not inferior and they still managed something like 8 podiums. @ an4rew. Bridgestone can't be fooling around with the tires so much like Pirelli for many reasons but mainly because of safety, remember these guys are unprotected out there, have you seen the tire failures in F1 lately? Imagine if a tire was to delaminate completely while taking a fast corner or doing 320KMH. Also the fact that they don't have pit stops makes it very hard to accomplish. I wish Spies the best, and if is not meant to be in MotoGP then somewhere else where he can delight us with the speed and race craft many of us have come to appreciate.
