I think Camier is doing a great job, and will be back next year on the same team,if that is what he wants....Now what I want to know,was there any team orders to let Biaggi get by him? what do you others think?

He has let Biaggi through before (last season).. and it did look as though he let him through. Probably a wise move though... he was clearly struggling and was just holding Max up. Good idea to keep the team happy if he wants to stay there next year.

Well, that's it, another brit who seems to have reached his ceiling in terms of achievement at world level. At least hes still holding it together instead of falling apart like Cal I suppose...

Bsb is a good shout, been on one of the best bikes for too long to still look so out classed.

Put Mr Edwards, Cal or Rdp on it. EX gp men seem to be the way forward these days!

Would be good for the series to have another good rider on a factory machine.

So the bike failing in the first race when he was about to challenge for second and a strong run at the front in the second race only to be defeated by tyre problems is all the riders fault? And the 'technical problems' he has suffered in previous races, let alone the glandular fever he started the season with....interesting perspective from the 'experts' on here......can't see him wanting to stay with Aprilia next year if Biaggi continues, no second rider in that team will get proper support while he's bleeding the life out of it....don't see him suffering the same sort of reliability issues as Camier. There'll be no shortage of offers from other teams.
