Pathetic performance and response! How can Stoner p1ss off at the front and Toseland wobble about at the back. Things can't have been that bad? If they were then the team don't know what they are doing.

Dissapointing from my point of view I was hoping Colin get a good result to get some points from Dovizioso he got three not the ideal thing for him hope he gets the result he needs at Valencia and get that fifth spot.

I agree with the view that the team don't know what they are doing,something i've said all along.I've never thought the technical staff at Tech 3 are that good.Toseland had a crap weekend to put it mildly but he has a reputation for giving good feedback to his crew even if his limited experience in moto gp is a bit of a shortfall,shame they can't relate that into getting the bike sorted out better.He started the weekend with no grip from the back and ended the weekend with a problem that wasn't close to being sorted out.Ben Spies is bringing his own crew with him next year who have worked with him for some time,i don't see him having the same problems next season with set up.

The only good thing to come from this weekend for JT was an apology from race control for the jump start mistake they made at Philip Island. However too little too late. And at last other people are beginning to realise that you can't lay all the the blame on JT's shoulders. Lets hope he gets a new pit crew for WSBK's next year. One that can intepret what he's telling them. :rolleyes:

sheene7 and how do u work it out that the team dont no what they are doing sitting 6th overall and maybe move up to 5th overall thats not a team that dont know what they are doing u just need to look at the results that edwards has had this year to see they do no what they are talking about and no how to set up a bike everyone has a bad weekend so maybe they made a few mistakes setting bike up but to say the team dont know what they are doing is rubbish

As is well documented this year the 2 sides of the Tech 3 garage do not talk to each other. Its not just the riders. And as dmo says running around on worn out engines so that Yamaha don't loose any points won't help either. :rolleyes:

For Toseland getting back to WSB can't happen quick enough as this year has been dreadful for him. Hopefully back on the superbike will be thing to make him competitive again. That series looks to setting up to be even better than it was this year.
