Well lets hope if he does get a factory ride he does a better job than Mr Spies.The factory bike has not helped him much so far.
To be honest there seems to be very little between the factory Yams (as it usually is) and the so called customer bikes but that may change as the season goes on.
Good luck to Cal whatever happens.

Buell its always difficult when you have a fast team-mate a bit smilliar to when Colin had Rossi as a team-mate during their time at Yamaha together.

The under pressure Texan just 0.004 seconds off the front row I am slightly frustrated but I do think a podium is a possibillity tommorow that would be a massive confidence booster.

Elbowz, once again no disrespect to your "Spies Pride" but you must stop making silly predictions/presumptions off the back of every test, practice, or qualifying when Ben appears up front. Yes he was THAT close to front row but if you look at his practice times he was last Yam 2 out of 3 sessions by over half a second! His race pace will be poor regardless of what he did last year IMO. He attained his grid position with a one lap wonder and none of his other laps where even close. Spies scrapping for points around 9th or 10th I reckon.

You will be lucky to see a result out of Ben until he is top 3 or 4 every session of a GP weekend and within 3 or 4 tenths of the leaders. Then again you could clutch at the straws of the  "he is the best on tired rubber" argument and I could be wrong (really me??) ? Cal says the soft compounds will be wrecked with 8 to go so Spies should be on the podium tomorrow in the world of Elbowz. 

Really... Good luck to Ben, he really needs to get his arse in gear! But I can't see it happening tomorrow and I doubt he does either.
