good track, great race. get the f1 boys there would be brill.

shocking commentator, his comments of payback towards biaggi is unacceptable. that is not how motorcycle riders think. what farbrizio did was a mistake anyway, and i feel really sorry for fabriz. not only that the pay back they refer to was about 18months ago. and max already been taken off about 5times this year if there was going to be a payback-tho them riders dont do that.. his hate towards one ride is a disgrace and ruining the best bike racing around. not only is he dull, he clearly knows nothing about riding a motorbike.

get Keith in, bring superbikes back to what it was. because he is really holding it back!

It was a pure racing incident, and Fabrizzio was VERY sporty running after Max to say sorry!!! But Biaggi as usual is a primadona and an arrogant overpaid "dust"!! Biaggi, for such events I'm happy you will not ride the Xerox Ducati next year, and that Fabriz keeps his seat!!!

yeah i said it was a racing incident and i feel sorry for fabriz. but it was his fault 100% as it was max fault 18months ago.

biaggi reaction was understandable in the heat of the moment. anyone who has been rammed im sure understands that. but i agree fabriz was sporting.

the reaction of that commentator almost happy that it happened is not acceptable. im sorry but the guy has no right to say the things he does, would he of said that if max or fabriz was hurt?

he is not a motorcyclist, only talks about his scooter, and his dislike for max and general dreary talk is enough to put people off what is a stunning sport.

sbk change him and u blow away moto GP like u did 10years ago.

im a fabriz fan so feel sorry for him, i have met him he is a nice guy(tho at the time he couldnt speak english) but frankie was with him. which is what i also find bad about the comments, there is no way he would do that on purpose. and neither would max-as his one incident shows(that them commentators wont let go-despite checa, haga, xaus + even rossi and almost every rider making that mistake at some stage in there career!)

good luck frabriz and max next time out.

please bring up keith huewin and jullian!

i think the commentators weren't doing it in a vindictive manner, just how you might when you talk with your mates, thats why they are, in most people's views not bad at there jobs.

hell, what i thought was funny, was the riders reaction, they sort of did some mad strictly come dancing moves while they were walking off, dancing while arguing was hugely funny i thought. his team mate xaus would of set a better exampe and at least thrown a proper punch at fabrizio.

hey and who says ducati dont have top end? xaus's 1098 breezed past jonny rea's honda down the front straight - after rea had slipstreamed him!

A lot of fuss about nothing - looked to me like Max was trying to get to his bike to see if it was still running - fabrizio was trying to apologise while Max was walking away. Max and Fab know each other extremely well - both Roman and Max sorted out Fabrizio's helmet deal when he started in MotoGP with WCM.

Re Keith Heuwen - please don't bring that dinosaur back he was continually insulting to Julian Ryder and Suzi Perry and obviously totally in love with himself - I found it painful to listen to.

Well done to Greg Lavilla - good results. Interesting to see how well Paul Bird runs the factory Kawasaki team next year. Congrats and happy retirement to Bayliss.
