Knew he had jumped the start, so he should have known to expect a ride through! Sorry Max, but someone of your experience shouldn't be making mistakes like that. Foolish end, to a fools weekend.

Wow - max actually apologized to his own team. Seems he learned SOMETHING. After all, how many factories remain that will work with him?

was a very poor sunday for max. Tho i suspect equal punishments when others do the same. as in the past jump start errors where they have moved and stopped havent been penalised. but still it was a very bad error.

but as for saturday, he tried to get out of melandris way and marco way over reacted (as did the biased commentary). the little moment in pit line is nothing but emotional banter and should be seen as such. anyone thinking otherwise needs to man or go watch a more gentle sport.

But max races were very poor. he clearly had lost his head. he needs to gather himself back together.

checa is looking mega!

Ok Max I have been pretty scathing about your behaviour today, thats because I am a fan. You have apologised, so thats an end to it.. now prove that you mean it by doing what everyone knows you can do the rest of the season. keep it clean and be man enough to show some good sportsmanship when your fellow competitors beat you. Marco deserved your congratulations today and I was keen to see you be man enough to shake his hand on the slow down lap. I didn't see that but that be down to TV coverage, but go back to enjoying it, like your early years, and like Carlos.

I would not be surprised if hew knew full well he had a Ride Through but decided he'd rather be disqualified. Why? His ego would suffer more by riding slowly through the pits with every one looking and then chugging around last position with everyone looking and laughing. A black flag is a simple job of coming in and shutters down.

I was afraid WSBK was going to turn into a prima donna motogp like soap opera. This is the MOST competitive roadracing championship in the world and we don't need this sh1te at all. I surely hope this is the last time it happens and I hope Infront doesn't let this happen again. I tune in to see the excellent racing not prima donna crap. That's what motogp and F1 are for.

BTW, props to Infront for the camera angles. No knuckles, no helmet and no stinking ass shots.
