Simon rode a great race possibly one of he best this year and heopefully will improve next year or maybe at valencia with a Podium.

marco well his head is down, he is the victim now and this has always been marco's problem.. if things go his way boy he is fast but when it gets tough he just gives up!! I hope SBK's is better for you but I do not hold THAT much hope for him there either!! We will see!!

Honestly, it's just painful to watch Melandri (or as I call him, Eeyore) continue on. For the sake of my sanity and his dignity, please, please put him out of his misery and replace him for the last two races. With someone. Anyone.

And then there's Simo on the flip side of the coin. The boy is 6 inches too tall and 20 pounds too heavy to be doing what he's doing, but he can just cane that Honda into somehow violating the laws of physics. He's the anti-Pedrosa. In style and substance.

i hate this Sic's haircut! But rides quite well for a rookie except that he tries to imitate rossi in his riding style. He even made a 'rossi' move at the corkscrew in laguna seca this year but later ended up biting dust.

Yep Fausto, we're unhappy too! Never would have thought Melandri would be leaving with his head tucked between his legs.

Great job by Semi! Clean up his riding a little and I'll really enjoy watching him race.

Melandri is a sorry sight to see right now after the giddy heights at PI a couple of years back.Who will forget that one handed wheelie/powerslide on a damp track.
I like having a dig at Simo,but I'll give him a rap today.Easily his best of a pretty consistent season.

Marco has improved a lot and I hope he will ge a chance for a podium soon!

He is the best rookie from 250 cc runners this year and best second as overall after Spies.

Heavy E,

Hayden thought the Honda was too small imagine poor Simo. He would probably do a little better on a bike built for normal humans like the M1 or Desmo.

He does seem to give up in the later stages of the race. Though in fairness this could be tire management problems as well.

Fantastic result...... for Simo! Unfortunately when you put it into perspective, he's stil the same useless, overrated, dangerous and slowest factory honda rider on the grid!
He was forever on the white line or the dirt during practice, quali and race. Accident waiting to happen, just hope he doesn't take anyone with him.
