The guy has showed speed all year and was very fast in some of the corners, he used his head when Elias banged his seat to tell him to stick on his tail. Deserved that for his hard charging and late braking.
And those who go on about daddy's money, wake up all kids get into racing because of this how else do you think it starts. My son did, its just that Abraham Snr has a lot of it and anyone would do the same.

Yep he did get a bit of luck, but KA can definitely ride. I've been surprised at how capable he actually is. (And hasn't he already put in respectable times on a desmosedici in a private test?)

As for 'earning' a MotoGP ride or not, I don't think it really matters what he did or didn't do to get there. It's how he performs once he's there that counts. That's what he'll be judged on.

I think Kenan made a mistake there on turn 1 in his tussle with Bradl. He was a nick back and on the outside. He tried to force it round the outside, but that meant his fate was in Bradl's hands whom didn't show any reluctance to squeeze him which -to be perfectly honest- is the norm in moto2. Look at what happened between Iannone and Elias on the last lap.

These guys are nuts !

Hard earned experience for Kenan. Hopefully he'll put it to good use in 2011.

Classic Tony Elias can't win the race legit so i'll break way late and dive up the inside maybe push them wide maybe crash myself or everyone. I really can't stand him. Not sure if Abraham would have won but he did a good race I was rooting for Iannone he really hung in there and had a shot at the win if it wasn't for Tony same with Simon. Anyway what a great way to end the moto2 season.

Akatsuki, you are an idiot.

Elias made a mistake, yes, but that happens when you're racing and he came off by far the worst.

Can't win legit? Well he has won 7 races this season so I think he can.

It wasnt just luck, there were about 30 other people on the track who hadnt put themselves in a position to capitalise from that elias mistake..

Oli ... your just a Tony lover i've seen your post. Your the f'n idiot he wasn't going to win the race he was the weakest of the front 4. Yeah sure he mistakenly broke way late almost cleared out Simon and the race leader. He does it all the time that's how he wins races late braking pushing others wide other then that he's average consider his years in moto gp.
