I can't believe JT fans are excited by this!..3rd place means 5th with the Ducatis in the mix. He knows the track and the bike, he should be in 1st place, then he would be shutting up the doubters, this is still a very mediocre result. Let's see what today brings!...we will get a better idea

Really positive start for Leon and the Suzuki. Congradulations on a nice job !!!

With Rae and Crutchlow not running on the spec tires during todays practice it will be interesting to watch them tomorrow.

Really glad Rae and Toseland did not get hurt.

Have to agree with Md Zane on this statement.

"Looking forward to tomorrow's times with a little more rubber down and the riders trying to stamp authority."

Should be much quicker times tomorrow.

The Ducatis weren't there, for whatever reason, so you can't consider what times they MAY have posted.
Anyway, 2 times WSB champ JT has beaten Haga, never WSB champ, many times before, when it really matters.

Great work for top three and especially Leon Haslam.
Each day is a day more in working on the future.
Suzuki already did 6 days testing and with those two 8 days. Still tests to come for those guys who has to reintegrate the top for the battle next season.
Work pays out ! Go ahead .. :)
Biaggi and Aprilia , as usual well born bike and great
bike : hopefully with the streebike out now, they will respect the rules of the SBK. Same for BMW. :?
James will be surely in fight for the title too.
And Rea is a real danger too ! :rolleyes:
With naturally the ducati boys on holiday for the moment. :p

As I thought
Be attend JT 's back / Haslam still up there / Rea will be also a contender with Biaggi. :)
Guintoli working hard and coming up. :-o
Max N. not easy to get into the rythm but logical need much more time and tests days before the next official. :rolleyes:

@ Bridgestone

You seem to have a short memory i dont recall suzuki falling back in 05 when they won the championship. your making out Suzuki are terrible when they have had a couple of Bad years in WSB But theyv'e been doing fine in AMA And BSB the last couple of years. If you you look a little deeper and stop tryin to make out your word is law when in reality its an half assed observation based on a couple of seasons. Then you wont have so much egg on your face. There's also alot of variables to take into account as to why these things happen its not always black and white. Think about it

@ PIRELLI

You're fully right ! :)
This season was a real nightmare for suzuki in WSBK with an injured rider Max , since Monza were he still was third at the WSBK ! :?

In addition the main sponsor Broux ,or something like that, left alstare without financial resources due to lack of results ( yeeh...you're already have an injured rider and this guy decide to stop paying ). :rolleyes:

And the suzuki was fighting until the last round for the Superstock world championship too ( alstare team)
:)and finished second.
:D
