And how many podiums or poles did Sykes get again last year? Oh yeah, NONE. And in a less competitive field too without the fully developed and superfast Aprilias and the factory seated Haslam to deal with. Sykes never even got a sniff of the front end of a race. Chuckling? I doubt it.

Quite a comedown from last year for the team. 2006 was a while ago James, but if it helps... Only BMW is behind Yamaha in standings with warhorse Corser up which must not make for smiling faces in Japan.

Entirely Yamaha's own fault for going the wrong way with development. The '09 bike might not have been the best in the field but was a good balance. The hike in power and mismatched electronics left the 2010 bike with lousy handling and side grip. Half way through the year and only now are they starting to get it working. The championship was lost in the first few rounds.

Good luck to both of them.I like to see different winners, it makes the championship more interesting. Also I've had a soft spot for Yamaha since my FS1-E days. A win for James would boost his confidence no end, I don't think Cal has any problems with his confidence!

Latest thinking is the Crutchlow talk was a diversion while Yamaha tried to move Spies to Rossi's seat but other teams objected( shows his standing in the league).
Now it's the test rider ending speculation.
