Very promising. Still not fully healthy, recently had surgery, didn't know the team or track and he beats his team-mate.
He was catching Kagayama by almost half a second a lap at one point.

He really gave it some in Superpole, the Traction control was working overtime. Nice to see someone finally being able to ride the gixxer as it should've been ridden all year.

I'm a big guintoli fan but i sometimes i wonder if suzuki made a mistake. It seems they're putting too much hope on a rider based on his first 3 races ina national based events. Yes guintoli have raced internationally before but stil, thats one hell of a pressure to put on a rider esp since he's recovering from a big injury. I dont understans how the hell did they let Max slip out of the team, they guy seems consistently the fastest gsx rider out there. Nuekrichner and guintoli pairing would be more effective.
