As I understand it Spies tore the tendons on his shoulder which is much bigger deal than a broken collar bone. He had I think 4 months with the shoulder immobile which had to atrophy the muscles which is his current problem. . But beyond that he seems to lack the toughness of Crutchlow on Lorenzo in shrugging off injury or adverse conditions. Assuming he is able to return at Indy at full strength, I think he is spooked and will never be a front runner indeed if he even stays in racing.
