If he'd spent less time poncing around before he suddenly decided to pick his bike up he may have got a better result, but still nowhere near Spies.
Puzzle to me is why didn't Nori get back on his bike at the Nurburgring when it was clearly undamaged? Its apparent from Fabrizio's crash that its not impossible to get a Ducati going again....a few points there + the 5 for Imola and Nori would be in a better place now. Shame he was having a sulk that weekend.

pp916, I always heard that it was impossible to bump start a stalled Ducati. Probably the reason why Haga did not even try at the Ring, and Fabrizio did not immediately run to re-enter the race.

Could it be that he suddenly realized the engine of his 1198 was still running?

Anyway, he has been the worst possible teammate for Haga these last two events, but don't forget he smashed Spies out of race 1 at Brno earlier this year.

And don't forget that Tom Sykes has been useless all season long as a teammate for Spies.

All in all, we end up having a duel between these two great riders, and I hope Nori does not crack under pressure and finally gets the world title he deserves.

Thats exactly what I was thinking. Hed had the chance to help last weekend but decided not to bother.


I was saying the same thing - what the fook was he doing wondering around in slow motion and then doing a little skip over his bike befor actualy getting back in the race.
I think there is a little something wrong with the guy. He's an odd one.

Yeah Fab sat on his backside on track for what seemed like 10 seconds and then sprung to life...he is a tad strange lol.
As for Nori at Nurburg, i thought it was one of two it's maybe one of three. 1. His arm was/is still weak after the break and it made it difficult for him to lift the bike. 2. He was having a strop. 3. It had stalled.
If the Duke's are good at Portimao then he might still be of use to Nori but from what Nori said...he can do it without help...let's hope he is right :)
Go #41!

Have to agree Fab has has done Nori no favours at all this year. If he was a team member he should of let Nori through to help him in the championship,it could or will be, very costly at the end of the day. With regards to the German round he may have already gone passed or caused a pile up should he have stopped to help Nori get underway again. I think the Duc's along some other bike have a button to restart them in an emergency, I would susspect that Nori is still not strong enough after his injurys from the big off he had at Donnington to pick the bike up off the floor. Ducati team mates!wot team mates? every man for himself it seams.

from a team point of view i can understand fab letting haga through at the last race

but as a fan or 'racing', and from the point of view of a show thank god he didnt. made a good race of it

and this is bikes not cars. why should he let him through. fair play to haga for not making an issue of it. if haga wins then he has done it on his own terms and all by himself.

Ducati thankfully for once did the right thing.

the commentator last week on Sbk was getting annoying keep bringing up. cos firstly he was showing he was biased and secondly if fab had let him through it would of made the race a effectively a fix. and right now that not what motorsport needs

not a fan but well done nori.
