The Frenchman has scored in every single race this season - only Max Biaggi can match that feat.

Guinters is doing a good job in a very competitive championship!
Tho people like sykes did have done this in the past, being consistent and doing a good job in there rookie year finshing in the top 10 of the championship.
Tho still got let off, overshadowed by spies.
And in guinters case it could be argued haslam has overshadowed him a tad, espeically with guinters pedigree from his motogp days.
I hope guinters keeps his ride, and if he does i guess he should count himself a bit lucky tho.

I dont think his position at suzuki is secure at all. He is riding what is in effect a Factory bike and is not even in the top 10. He is nowhere near his teamate's results. He really needs to show something in the last 3 races to justify his position. There will be a lot of good riders eyeing that seat for next year.

I expected more from him after Philip Island where he showed us real signs of a front runner this season, but he's just gone of the boil, personally i don't think he is taking enough risks, notice he hasn't crashed this season, this is just a guess but maybe that crash in BSB at Donington Park last year has affected his confidence. Although i do hope he keeps his ride, but it may turn out that he has to look elsewhere in the WSBK paddock for a job or maybe even BSB.

He had some problems in the first half of the year but there's very little between him and Haslam now (Silverstone race one, when he chose a different tyre, being an exception). In fact, I think he's beaten Leon in four of the last eight races.

And only he and Biaggi have scored in every round.
