Reality and confidence

Spies is finishing where he always has at GP level on his better days. The belief he's ever truly done that well in Moto GP is a myth. Ok the odd podium and a good if alittle lucky win in three years is hardly alien stuff.

I think Spies confidence was shot to shit the moment he threw his leg over the factory M1 and realised it wasnt the bikes that were making Lorenzo ,Rossi, Pedrosa and Stoner go that much faster. You u realise you will never be that good its got to hit your confidence hard. The mistakes have come thick and fast and the excuses flow.

Its no shame on Ben, he just simply isnt talented enough. On current form  id rate him 8th best rider out there, regardless of Bad luck, which is pretty good at world level.

Shame theres only 7 decent rides available on the grid though.........
