I guess BMW deserve this, all this years worcking to be at the Top, and now that they are close, they have good riders is when they go QUIT... BUUUUUHHHHH

At least there riders will find other places and who knows how will be the Future, maybe now if Melandri stay with Aprilia he can smile again, and maybe Chaz will enjoy Vtwns..lol

3 words... 17 inch tyres. these would be the same 3 words i said at the beginning of the season. the beemer wasn't going to get on with the new rubber as quickly. now that they have some data, theoretically they should be on the pace come next year.

speaking of next year, what's the bet on goldbet...? ok, you're out of contention now, but BM or no BM, you got tons of press this season and were still very competitive.

what, not enough...? right then, consider for a moment, an updated bike arrives next month and DUCATI would KILL to have what you have in just one of their series.

Watched him blow the title in 2012, and commented that year was his best chance of being world champ. Nothing I saw this year (2013) has made me change my mind that he will never win the title.

Melandri might win it next year if hes got Dosoli managing the team :) should be interesting to watch that one play out, Me thinks Melandri will reprise Max's role in the garage, god help Guintoli is right :) I think hes about to understand what Laverty had to deal with in 2012. Not that Max is a bad guy, but politics trumps ability almost anywhere.
