Im not comparing this guy to stoner, but what he has done with that bike over the last couple of years that no team mate can come close to is impressive .
He is very fast on that bike, no one else is . See what im saying anyone ?

Lol,i believe it was Neukirchner who compared JR to Stoner in that JR seems to be the only one able to extract performance from the CBR.

I still contend that if Rea and Haslam were on Ducs then the top of the leaderboard would look slightly different.

Even Guintolis Duc passed Rea at the end of the straight at Miller ffs!

Hope Checa will do the double, but Rea and Haslam can be there too. The wildcards are impressive, Sandi and Polita mainly, Baiocco is a little strange, he was faster in the other races he took part this year.
Fores is a little bit behind, of course this is his first SBK race, but knows the bike very well. Maybe he will be better by time.

I have always rated Jonathan Rea! His achievements on that bike are brilliant considering how crap it is. Jonny is definately one of the best riders there is, and we still haven't seen what he is capable of. Give him a good bike and he will be a champion that's for sure!! So good to have him back.

Honda made Rea a lot of promises about increased support and a fast team mate for next year to aid development to get him to sign - let's hope that they deliver and he has a better bike in 2012.
