Seven thousanths isn't much. I picked Fab to win this year, let's see! Those Ducks are so strong off the line from a standing start. How many times did I see Spies lose the pole because of that last year?

For the Haga fans however, where is his fire? Didn't you think he'd come out fired up or is he saving it for Sunday?

Well he won the first race from 13th on the grid last year, so I think we'll have to wait for the chequered flag on Sunday to know where Haga is at.

One lap Haga and racing Haga are two very different people it seems!

Old Chucker's been around long enough to be sensible enough to be cautious rather than have his words come back and haunt him. Still he must be quietly chuffed with that.

As for the weather being unpredicatable - it usually is. But against that the Dukes seem to have a bit wider tolerance than most of the rest - you only need look at last week's times to confirm that.

One interesting part of the quote is that he not only mentions his team mate but calls him Shakey - looks like they are getting on which will only help develop the team and bikes, rather than putting up walls between teammates :)

Carlos has always been fast. He loves riding bikes. He'll be a condenter on sunday but is he motivated to do this for the season and grab points at tracks where his bike not working so well? I hope so

Where are all of the Checa haters now?

Not too bad for a "washed up ex GP rider".

He may not even finish in the top ten, and I could care less. I've always liked him.

Carlos, good job, don't sell yourself short.Push the envelope.
Back in 1990, double R, Raymond Roche did the business for Ducati. How about double C.
It is not out of the equation CC Rider!!!
All the best!!!!

Never crossed my mind it did.

He has been riding very well over all of the pre season testing. Do I think he will win a championship? No. Do I believe he belongs in WSBK? Yes.
