WSBK » Haslam: The potential at BMW is massive!

BMW new boy Leon Haslam reckons the potential inside the Bavarian outfit for 2011 is 'massive' - as he bids to turn the team from podium challengers into race-winners and even title contenders in the World Superbike Championship

It's been getting better all the time.

It will be very interesting to see how it compares with the new Kawasaki next year.

I don't think the BMW is likely to be a title contender in 2011, but maybe in 2012 if they keep improving.

BMW a contender ? A lot to work on this bike and in this team...stil chaotical situation ! Max will be there again and also Laverty / REA. Leon, not in 2011, some podiums but not enough to win the title. Let's just enjoy the battles...the best will win.

Its good to see leon finally on a full works bike and potentially the No1 rider.If he can get the upperhand on Troy i think he will get that position within the team. I take him to win the Championship.I picked him to do it this year and nothing has happened to make me change my mind. Infact i am more confident about next year.

due to it's architecture, as good as the bmw gets, it will unfortunately always be a step or 2 behind the competition. short stroke I4's are inherently peaky. no amount of electronics will cure that.
