Great Race again, as expected! Grat for all the top guys, lot of overtaking, crucial maneuvers, action in every corner :D Sad that Max or Aprilia(?) made mistake in the last lap, but Aprilia has prooved that the bike is fast (such as BMW in the first race). Where were the Kawas and the Ten Kate boys???? Top Honda is stiggy's bike - could anyone think of it? IMO the biggest surprise is Haslam - he is the top british rider, the negatives are Rea, Sykes, Byrne and the Kawas.

Not a bad effort for Spies, still with the best electronics package it was bound to help him no end and it certainly gave him the race win today.

I think they need to do some work with him on his people skills. I have seen house plants show more emotion and personality. I wonder if Ben will face the same criticisms that another former world champion got winning with a superior electronics package and lack of personality.

Good effort from Haga today is renowned to be a slow starter to the season.

Do all road going R1 come with the big bang engine configuration? Or is this another thing Yamaha have gotten away with? :-o

Maybe it's motogp exploits are passing over to WSBK. :p

So what? He has to win in a pedal tricycle and then make a magic show on the podium? Get real, the kid has talent and its very down to earth, he made a good choice going for the Yamaha. Guess there are some people jealous of other people's success.

Sykes ended up 20 seconds behind his teammate? Hopefully he'll pick up the pace at Qatar. Great rides from Laconi and Haslam. What happened to Neukirchner in race 2?

Ya gotta love Haga. He gave Bayliss a couple of kisses like he was the trophy girl and he had to tell everyone that it's his birthday tomorrow. He's an old man at 34. :)
