@ slater - from Ben.
The deal went along these lines ... Suzuki pretty much dropped the ball & Yamaha came along to catch it. They knew he wanted to get into MotoGP, but they already had riders signed there, however they had the gaps in the WSBK team ... so he was always guaranteed a MotoGP ride within a couple of years when signing with Yamaha. I think it was an incentive thing to fire him up (not that he needs it) but the better he does in WSBK, the faster he gets to MotoGP.
I dont know the exact details, but a "couple" of wins gets him in for 2010.

(Ollie ... confirm the details for us plz)
