He was helped by Stoner and De Puniet crashing, other wise I think he'd have been 9th. But to pass Dovisioso, who is on a factory Honda and who's teammate won the race was a reasonable effort.

Speaking of Dovi what are his chances of hanging onto that seat next year.. Pedrosa is really showing him up.

You did an awesome job Ben and should be very happy with that race.
I said he'd be top 8 and had Stoner not fallen off on the warm up then it would have been spot on. 7th is one better though so it's all good.

So Ben helped his team mate! I thought Colins team mates where supposed to try to beat him and then steal his crew cheif! I think this will be a good pairing until Colin goes back to world supers to kick Toselands **** in that too.

I'm feeling quite smug this morning as I called Ben's weekend to the tee - even saying 1 alien would crash and Spies would finish 7th. :D

My only error was saying JT would crash trying to save what's left of his pride. Guess I was wrong.....
