Hmmmm, about the sabotage history, I doubt it doesn't make much sense.

Just one reason why: who on Earth would be so stupid to first contract a rider, pay him and spend money to let him race only to... Sabotage him? :S.
Wouldn't it be better to get a rider you wouldn't need/want to sabotage or, also, not to get another rider at all?

But I guess the real silliest is me here using my time to reply :).

expecting Ducati to walk away with this one. Looking like a damage limitation weekend for Aprilia, a shame the test didnt come before the race. Will be interesting to see how Sykes manages his tires seeing as how he likes to shoot to the front from the word go.

Nothing unexpected from Laverty this season. Anybody with their head screwed on knows Biaggi will wipe the floor with Laverty. Melandri did last season, and melandri isnt even in the same league as Biaggi.

Sabotage what utter ball crap some people talk.

If you guys read more often you would of know Nakano was pretty much a development rider to aid Biaggi in making the bike as fast as possible also Nakano was hindered with may injuries and retired at the end of the season so his chances of win were never really possible. That's that cleared up.
Camier was never comfortable on the bike only a few stand out rides in his 2 years on the bike. He may of complained about Biaggi but never remember hearing him say he was be given 2nd rate parts hes not one to settle for 2nd rate he sure would of said something don't you anyway it most defiantly would of been big news among the sbk paddock if it was true.

As for Laverty there's nothing to say he's been injured and hasn't shown his race potential yet but I sure think he is aprilia's future he's young and very fast and has 250 experience he's style suits the bike very well and he looks happy with the bike.

Good luck to both of them.
