Not a bad start to the season, without those errors, he could have had two much better results. Must admit i was surprised at how fast he was straight from the off, especially considering it's a new bike/team for him.
Hope he keeps his head together for the rest of the season,a few top five results could be a big boost for him.

Hmm wouldnt be surprised if this turns into an awkward relationship knowing how sensitive max is and how hard working leon is i think there wont be a lot seperating them at the next round.

Its been a very positive start for Leon even despite the couple of errors, like others have said things could get a bit fractious between the two if he continues to be breathing down Max's neck !

I've had the pleasure of working with Leon before and take it from me, he has what it takes to be WSBK Champion. His mental attitude allows him to focus on his own situatuion and not worry about tema mates or opposition. A real benefit when trying to play catchup (as he'll do for a few races this season). However I would imagine it won't be long before he's right on Max's chuff. :p

Bear in mind Max is now 38 years old....he's not going to carry on that much longer so I would hope that Camier is Aprilia's investment for the future, they'd be foolish to pi*s him about too much this season, although the focus will undoubtably be on Max initially if they fancy a shot at the championship....it will be interesting to see how the situation develops.

Give Leon 2 or 3 more rounds and i think he will be beating Max on a regular basis , He is probably the most talented racer of all the brit wsbk riders.

From a pure talent perspective, I don't think Leon is more naturally talented than Shakey Byrne. He may eventually turn out to be faster than Shakey in the coming years but that won't be solely due to talent. Byrne's riding style, ability in the wet etc... is superb. He just has bad luck and (apart from GSE and the MonsterMob days), second rate bikes. Portimao will be fascinating. If Byrne can carry his form from last year I would expect no less than two wins...

Leon is great rider but... it just seems to me that he simply 'doesn't belong' on Aprilia... Leon was made for R1. I could imagine switch between him and Toseland.
