Yeah, I know Hayden has lost two engines based solely on crashes and nothing else. I'm sure that Stoner is in the same boat with as many times as he has gone down. I wouldn't put much stock in the reliability of motors, especially since some manufacturers pull motors after a prescribed number of laps/mileage, even if they haven't imploded (like Jorge's motor at the Sachsenring).
