Great just great ....Haga got the bad start i didn't want him to get he got bogged down and then spent the whole race chasing that idiot Biaggi, Whoose bike is much quicker on the straightaway .
What nori did then is just typical of Nori and why he is so Popular, gave us all edge of the seat nail biting racing and near enough won the race......As he said post race “ If we had one more lap, for sure something happen” ....funny to see the look on the Yamaha Italia teams faces Spies moms was Sh*tting herself, the look of relief !
Shame though as those 5 points would have helped a lot , now but As Nori said “i don't need anyones help” .

. Interesting to see that Tardozzi stated in the interview before the race with Eurosport that there were team orders , Fabrizio is a naughty boy indeed!
Every major motorsport Champion in history has had some form of team orders to aid them. From Schumacher to the great Vale, cue Estoril 2006 where Edwards coulda won the race but was told to hold station!
Come on Nori race 2 is yours. Ultimately it will be too late as I think now though Spies will win the championship as Portimao is a track he absolutely flies at.

Absolutley nothing in between the two of these guys. Next race should be intresting, specially if Rea can keep it on two this race, should make for a good race 2. :)

Stunning performance by Nitro Nori! Shame he qualified only in 5th and had a pretty bad start, whereas Spies started like a rocket. Nori had clearly the best pace of whole field, Biaggi was doing everything to keep him behind but it was only thanks to his better top speed. That Aprilia is unbelievably quick! I hope Nori will have better start and he will fight with Ben till the end.

Biaggi actually spoiled that race a bit, would have been Haga vs Spies for nearly the whole race rather than the last few corners if not for the moving bollard. Hope Haga can get by him quickly in race 2.

th problem is that the Aprilia has a fantastic engine & top speed. Even Nori will start in front of Max, the italian could easly overtake him at Lap 1 or 2, thanks to his engine.
For sure Biaggi will do some stupid moves like he tried to overtake Nori at turn "Adelaide" & totally missed the corner. Stay away from Ben & Nori next race before to do something you'll regret, loser

Off topic but can someone quickly explain how manufacturers points are calculated? Is it based on the two highest finishings of that make?

Thanks
