Yes Haslam,

The ducatis were running on one cylinder and the aprilias were just warming up.

You're one of my faves to the title but it isn't going to be easy with such a deep field.

That's it, he's finished he's lost his confidence. He only won at Phillip Island because his dad paid some of the seagulls to put Fabrizio off his pace.

Come on come on, what's happening to the 'let's slate Haslam for no good reason' brigade.

Just because you can be pretty damn sure of seeing hiom back on the podium at Poritmao?
Its never stopped you before.

Go Leon :p

Why pick on Leon ??? To say his results thus far are anything but spectacular would be kind of stupid.

Haslam on the Suzuki did much better than I thought they would.

But I will agree with the Go Leon :p

Doughnuts Anyone

For me when Haslam was in BSB I was never a fan of his like he was always saying this or that and it just come across like he was making excuses.

But since he been in WSBK on the Honda he had some great rides and that bike even when stiggy had big money probs so could not get that lastest parts for Leon that probably why they are not racing this season.

But now that he is on the Suzuki he showing wot he all about and as people say give the rider the right bike and the talent will come out and I must admit I have turn into a Haslam fan now.

A fantastic result for Leon, his team and his family. Experience has proved in the past that once a rider cracks their 1st win then more can often follow once they have proven to themselves that they truly belong to the front place - it's then 'theirs' as much as anyone elses. Looking forward to Leon continuing his strong performances and to an all round excellent season :) :) :) :)

It's true, Skinny. Leon was doing GP's when he was about 16 or 17 on a 2 stroke 500.
Can't remember what bike, but it certainly wasn't factory and I don't believe he contested the full season.
Haslam has certainly been around a bit...

You'd be surprised the number of Brits who had a crack at 500GP's- James Haydon, for instance.

Also agree that Johnny Rea will fly in Portugal- I expect double podium for him if he gets a reasonable start.

Would also expect Laverty to win the WSS race comfortably.
