WSBK » Laverty: We've made the bike mine

After leaving reigning World Superbike Champion Max Biaggi fairly trailing in his wheel tracks on the final day of testing at Phillip Island, Eugene Laverty admitted he has 'really made the Yamaha YZF-R1 mine' now

Glad to see Laverty on it and that he got use to the Superbike fairly easy.

I think Laverty could be a dark horse for 2011, i'm looking forward to it already......go on Laverty

Now that they're putting in times which are more closely matched I wonder if that means they'll work more collaboratively?

When Melandri put in laps a clear second ahead of Laverty at the previous test I was surprised, & also began to wonder if the team would see him as their star rider. This is a good antidote to the risk of that.

Melandri is going to have a rough one if he doesn't change his style soon. The yamaha unlike the aprilia seems to be more suited to an all out suicidal SBK rider. Though Laverty has adapted very well.

Maybe I'm jumping the gun a bit. Let's give him a little more time. I wish them both good luck.

Laverty's not fast because he has an all out suicidal style.
Laverty's fast on that R1 because, tho he's bold when he has to be, basically he is very, very smooth.
