Cards were not stacked in his favor at all and I would say 80% of last season was not his fault at all. Hopefully Audi will turn some stuff around and they'll get back to being competitive.
Some luck, you make.
Spies wanted the bike set up really hard, apparently harder than the Yamaha wanted to be set - broken shock mount as a result. So you can interpret that as the bike not being adapted to him, or vice versa.
There were enough mistakes to go around, so lets just say it wasn't a good match and move on. Quitting via Twitter was unprofessional, no matter what the executive had to say. Hopefully, he will enjoy the Ducati family.
