    The Yamaha's are progressing very well, and are now a threat for a win soon, if it wasn't for Rea's dodgy pass they would have been 2nd 3rd and 5th. thats impressive. no one was going to touch Bautista on the GP track. Ducati have really come to the party with this new first season V4, but its strange that Davies is struggling. But I'm just enjoying the progression of the Yam's, is really making the SB series interesting again.

    +1. totally agree Dave, it is starting to get interesting.
    Can Yamaha bridge the gap to Bautista? I don't think so. It's not the just the bike, he is one talented rider with a good package (team, support & bike).

    Bring on the superpole race & race 2.

    WSBK - Spain (spoilers, duh)

    I'm literally loving the fact that the Tenkate boys are doing better than the moriwaki team that replaced them.

    Well AB has been charmed so far, something bad had to happen sooner or later, pity JR couldn't capitalise more but MVDM was on a roll this weekend, well deserved.

    So sorry for Alex Lowes, he looked to have pace similar to VDM but it all went tits-up yesterday and that continued into today.

    Great ride by Toprak, that puts pressure on Haslam to keep his ride for next season.

    Be good when BMW come with their engine upgrade, supposedly at the next round, then Tom moight get to properly join the party.

    Yes VDM wins one!
    Lowe’s pace is similar but VDM does finish more often.
    That’s what all about in a championship.
    Nice bloke hate to see him get off though.

    So Melandri gets a 6 place grid penalty at the next race for wiping out Chaz Davies in a totally dickhead move.......inconsistently showing, why did JR get a heavier penalty?

    Could it be that the powers that be are allowing themselves to be influenced by social media reaction?

    JR clearly full of remorse and couldn't apologise enough for taking out AL, you can bet that Melandri couldn't give 2 fu*ks about taking Chaz out,, he'll be too busy feeling sorry for himself......

    Let's not forget JR's days at Honda when he made several of those moves every year. He has a history of sketchy moves that alot have conveniently forgotten about since winning at Kawi.

    .
    If Melandri had finished in the points then I'm sure that they would have taken additional steps. The committee have guidelines and I'm guessing they say grid penalties and place penalties. He didn't place so a grid penalty only.

    Haven’t they all done dodgey shit one way or another.they are not club racing. Do the crime do the time, as long as it is balanced accordingly.
