Lucky the race didn't finish 3 or 4 laps later, or your team mate (who ran off the track) would have beat you. Do us a favour and see if you can still cut the mustard in WSBK. Your wasting a valuable seat in Moto GP.

Edwards was careful not to rub it in on Simoncelli with the remark on rear tire but in the video interview with Spies, he revealed he and Edwards have a standing bet regarding who loses to Simoncelli. But I couldn't make out what the penalty was.

"Do us a favour and see if you can still cut the mustard in WSBK."

Don't be silly. Anyone who just finished 5th in the championship and 5th in a MotoGP race can "cut the mustard" in WSBK.

Actually, the gap between the two was the same at the end of lap 23 as it had been at the end of lap 2, Ben didn't close the gap at all.


"Anyone who just finished 5th in the championship "

wtf are you on about, he's currently tenth in this years championship and there are still a few rounds to go.

Good ride by Colin 5th is good considering the season he has had but had his team-mate not had the off track incident he would have well beaten him anyways normal service will be resumed at Sepang this upcoming weekend.

"just finished" and "last year" are hardly the same thing !

Unless you happen to work on some time span where "just", is in terms of the universes existance, and might be any time within the last millenia.

@ aeolus

Where is this video? I'd like to see.

To those who feel Colin is wasting a seat, Colin is solid. He's not on a factory ride, so it is hard to say he is doing poorly. Just cause a teammate is better, does not mean he does not deserve a spot in MOTOGP. Of course if you prefer to have the race just be the aliens and a couple of americans and spaniards and an italian for good measure, let's just make it the the top ten racers period. That's dumb.

Aside from a total catastrophe, I bet Edwards finishes behind Spies as the second best satellite pilot of the season. Top 8

Which btw is hardly someone that should be in WSBK instead. Besides, he would go to jail for beating all those wide-eyed kids on international telly - every race weekend.
