whoop de doo ducatis will own...zzzz. great news for the championship. Watch the cheating manufacterer dominate. I was hoping for Sykesy, Rea or even Hopkin to be out there but watch as the 4 cylinders get buried. Hats off to Rea and Sykes for absolutely wrining everything out of their bikes...

I can see a Ducati podium lockout in the races as the 4 cylinder bike seem to wearing the tyres much more.

From watching on Eurosport this evening Andrew Pitt commented that he could believe how much traction control the BMWS of Melandri and Haslam were using

Dacoiti has looted the championship. Looks like any tom-dick-harry can make good advantage of extra large engine.
Wsbk should come with same engine rule irrespective of no. of cylnders u use, like in motogp. This open cheating has spoiled the championship. And their tyres don't wear out too.
Heard that Dacoiti r recruiting riders having weight 6kg less than a normal rider.

While I also disagree with the engine size advantage of the Ducati, it's time people stop b1tching about it.. It will not change anything... But also, Let's not take anything away from Smrz, he's a fine rider and deserves this pole.

As for the Ducati's running away with the race, I am not too sure. Guess we'll have to wait and see.

Regarding engine size, at Donnington the Duc's were quite slow and it was obvious at some sections that they struggle with speed. Utah is quite fascinating as it has the longest strait, but still the Duc's are always fast there. It must be the mid section which fits the Ducati's.
I can't see how the Panigale is going to be faster then the 1198, because if it will be faster they will just put more weight and increase the restrictors at the engine intake.
