Oh Karel, at least when Simo was falling off it was from the front of the pack. They say you can teach consistency but you can't teach speed. Have to ask if any other teams would be quite so forgiving at so many mistakes. Got a lot to prove next year....

This is Karel's rookie year and he has qualified ahead of more experienced Ducati riders (read: Rossi, Hayden) more than once. He is ahead of the other rookie in points (talk about mistakes! Crutchlow has made quite a few). He suffered a nasty crash and I am grateful he was not seriously hurt. He is showing great potential, especially as he is riding the Ducati everyone is struggling with! Go Karel!

allright as you asked for i go again !

for motogp future shake,we need to urge Dorna to eleminate CS,JL,DP,(might be Simo n Bens as well) in the name of motogp's close fight n entertainment.

so sad to hear someone insist on telling that excuse over n over while forgetting what the essence of real race matters or is to find about.

At the ***** who said Abraham needs to prove himself next year - I'm pretty sure Rookie of the Year is a pretty good way of proving himself this year.

He isn't a bad guy and will make a good racer .

Karel is doing well in his rookie year despite all the boo-birds prediction of epic fail. He may never beat Casey (and a few others) but he will not embarrass himself like the perennial tail enders of this season.

"I'm pretty sure Rookie of the Year is a pretty good way of proving himself this year."

There's only two entrants to this year's Rookie of the Year ... and he's currently in second.

He started the year excellently but is being hurt by DNFs (4 in the last 8 races). I hope he can turn it around, because when he finishes, it's often in front of a couple of decent riders.

Lucky dads got bags of money or he'd be out of a ride but credit where credit is due he's doing a lot better than Marco Melandri did & I don't even think he's been to see a shrink
