Leon Haslam and Marco Melandri have special ties with Donington Park, enough to put them amongst the favourites this weekend.

Pirelli messing up at WSBK Monza round, and now it seems maybe F1 and it would appear Bridgestone are supplying a tyre that's causing chatter and ruining the races for riders and a lot of teams in MotoGP.

I'm begining to think if the one make tyre rule in these championships has run its course.

Despite his relatively young age Leon has more experience than most on the grid. He is still the youngest ever points scorer in the top flight MotoGP class ( Then 500cc 2 strokes) on a highly uncompetative unreliable bike that was lucky to finish the race without breaking down.

Not just because I am a brit but because for too long Leon has been under estimated I would like to see the first BMW win by Leon & I agree with the earlier comment that Leon seems to have more than the measure of Melandri.

Add on to this that Leon is tipped to fill in for Colin Edwards on the BMW Suter CRT bike & the question should really be if Leon gets the first BMW win & puts in a strong showing on the CRT will BMW be able to keep Leon on their bikes next season?

I would expect at least two UK riders on the podium for each race at Donington - Haslam, Laverty, Rea or Sykes and maybe Chaz. Take your pick.

And hotrijder7 I take it you liked my comment on the "Schumacher launches further Pirelli attack" story seeing as you've copied it into a couple of other article comments sections. I'm most flattered I must say.
