Ben Spies, placed on Pramac Ducati by rumor mill
Ben Spies, placed on Pramac Ducati by rumor mill

Weeks ago Ben spies He announced on Twitter his intention to abandon the Yamaha ship after a disastrous campaign in which bad luck has been his daily companion. Crashes, engines and even a faulty swingarm have kept him from getting on the podium on more than one occasion. At this point in the season Ben is looking for a motorcycle and current rumors say that I would have already signed with Pramac Ducati for his next stage in MotoGP.

The signing would be announced just before the Misano Grand Prix next September 14. If confirmed, Héctor Barberá is seriously affected by his intention to continue in the premier class despite having been Borgo Panigale's best bike on different circuits. On the other hand, Spies' signing on the contract with the Italian brand reveals a plan B or even C, aware of the doubts that hover over the Ducati Corse structure.

Months ago, it was taken for granted that the Ducati satellite team would disappear from the grid for 2013, but it seems that the “junior plan” needs this team in MotoGP. Furthermore, in theory, the Texan's riding style would be perfectly suited to a Ducati GP13 as strong as Casey's in 2007. Do you think a good role for Spies is possible in 2013? And the crowning as an official team to Pramac? Recall that this already happened when Althea, with Carlos Checa and Shane Byrne at the helm, continuously beat Michel Fabrizio and Noriyuki Haga in SBK.

However, if the support that Pramac will enjoy is the same as the current one, I see a big mistake Ben's move, a pilot who needs to show his teeth again to a world that in just a few months has lost the respect it earned with ax blows and elbows on the ground.
