Haslam has had a lot of bad luck with the bike, also tyres. There's been lots of races this year where he has been on the pace at the front, then dropped back. Tyres being the issue. As the riders dont have their personal choice of tyres this season (the tyres being the same throughout the paddock), some riders are having trouble, some riders are loving it. Leon is unfortunately one of the ones having trouble. Leon's last 2 seasons on his preferred tyres have been excellent. 2 riders better than him, beat him last year, one of those riders beat him the year before. Leon can do better. And i think he will. Give the guy a break

It may be possible Haslam underestimated how strong his teammate was going to be this year and has overridden at times trying to beat him ?.I also think that pre-season many people believed he would walk to this years BSB title and anything less is seen as evidence that he is somehow rubbish ?.Personally I think he is a good rider,he has shown signs of that in the past and I think he is capable of doing a much better job than he has managed at times this year.The upcoming WSBK race at Donington (a track he knows like the back of his hand) will be a very good chance for him to prove his doubters wrong.He needs to run at least as well as Tom Sykes did at Brands.If not the knives will be out.
