I think they have probably got the most out of this dated bike and boy did it show,leon Haslam went past him as if he wasn't moving,but I suppose he will stick it out with the promise of motogp next year(Thats if he has not wrecked him self pushing this heap of s??te around the track)good luck to you Jonathan,you will need it.

He would have experience with the electronics, tires, tracks, suspension, brakes and added power. Nobody expects Cal to win everything this year but he is learning and Jonathan is getting older. I wish Ten Kate had the backing to run Moto GP with Jonathan.

"I wish Ten Kate had the backing to run Moto GP with Jonathan."

Oh god forbid, considering the hash they continually make of setting up a Fireblade I dread to think what sort of MGP bike they'd put on the track.

Jonathan's loyalty to Honda is admirable in some respects but there would need to be a longer term payoff for putting up with this situation in WSB. Look to Neukirchner last year and Xaus this year to see just how bad a set up this is all round. If it actually DOES end up getting him into MGP on a decent bike then it'll be worth it, otherwise he's wasting his time and needs to look elsewhere.

Jonathan Rea does a brilliant job with what he has to work with, so imaging how well he would do with a better bike?? Even James Whittam,Carl Foggarty, Neil Hodgson and James Hayden were in agreement that Jonathan is a force to be reckoned with when his bike is right and is an immense threat so it is sad to see him struggle. People slate Jonathan for not winning a championship, but given what he has to do it with he gives it every ounce of effort!His time will come!
