Are you serious Mack? I think BMW would love nothing more than a 1-2 finish in every single race. Haslam's run close to the front in a lot of early races, it seems like we're seeing the same mid-season slump we ran into with him last year. I just hope he gets his stuff together, it's a shame seeing him always hovering around 6-8th positions

Yes Etz i am serious...Leon is not on the same spec bike as melandri,remember the team manager is italian+he has chosen melandri to develop the new direction for the electronics as he is the most experienced rider(and maybe rightly so)Its standard practice for this to happen throughout the paddock(ask Eugene)and this decision is probably justified by the results but i would like to see Leon get a few crumbs soon....

Word round the camp fire is that bmw are looking to drop Leon-Checa taking his place...Biaggi to Ducati or Kawasaki,but given his acrimonious split with Ducati last time the the green machine could be on the cards.
