Why don't you like it. It looks like he had a shot on another factory honda and turned it down for a chance to be on the yamaha factory team or possibly another factory team with all the contracts that are ending next year. He might also know something we don't about how Honda operates. I think as long as he does good on the tech3 he could have a shot to pick a factory bike and one that is competitive under the coming format. He might even end up on a CRT in the future with dorna making sure they end up being competitive. Spies better look out, Yamaha is going to replace him if he doesn't start putting in better races and I'm sure Dovi took this ride with those exact intentions. He's probably worth more than Ben in sponsorship too. I have to say this is my favorite time of year in GP.

In his dreams! With Stoner in current form & Marquez being groomed he has no chance. The factory yamahaha team in 2013 will be Lorenzo & Dani.

But perhaps Dovi was demanding too much financial recompense (his ambitions outweigh his talents).



He also did force Hondas hand with this years contracts so he didnt do himself any favours...the Japanese so detest losing face.
