....continued. If Shakey's lead in the championship this year were solely down to how much of an advantage the 1098 Ducati has over the rest of the field, then (as has been stated numerous times already throughout posts on this subject), Camier, Rutter et al would all be flying in formation behind Shakey every race in a 1-2-3-4 order, with all the others (if they could stay on 2 wheels that is) 25 seconds back up the road. That hasn't been the case, in fact I was at Brands to witness Shakey's efforts courtesy of Airwaves VIP hospitality, and it actually took Shakey around 8 laps to catch and pass Sykes and Crutchlow on his way to winning race 1. That's not advantage, that's ability !!

It's the fine line between deciding if the advantage is with the bike or the rider. Probably a combination of both in this case though. It is very close if you look at the times though.
