Badovini was very impressive, but I actually thought he had less power than the factory boys which translated to better tyre life. Hard to tell from the few onboards we got from Badovini but his traction control seemed to be less active than Haslam and Corser's.

is bmw that arrogant as to assume it was going to be a contender in two years? some of these factories have been racing forever. we know bmw know engines but do bmw think that copying the chassis geometries of the others guarantee them instant success? there is more to winning than just that.

Yet again another poor weekend for BMW! It just aint happening! According to Leon it was a successful test at Misano recently? So even though i'm a Haslam fan and i don't think its his fault at all.I'm expecting more excuses next Sunday night?

If WSB rules were what they should be (the point of the orignial WSB by Mr Maclaughlin) I am sure the BMW would be a front runner as in superstock. Maybe BMW didn't understand that you need a full GP bike to be a front runner and we know how that effort turned out, all be it an Oral bike. Will they do the German thing like F1 if we are not winning we are not playing? Their CEO is begginning to make them kind of disguised noises.
Shame really the Kawaskai and BMW are good bikes just not good pure race bikes (aka GP bikes), both of them have the full weight of the factories but can't beat importer teams.

Leon, all i can say is "your ambition outweighed your trust in GSX-R.."

Don't take me as your hater, i'm your fan. It just i'm TOO disappointed with your decision for abandoned Suzuki..
