Now it's a question mark for the factory rules and if they learned their lesson form F1 they won't turn their eyes to 2013 abandoning this season as it was with Kubica. I hope so.

Vilas: MotoGP (1000cc) is the boringest racing series in the world right now. I almost fell asleep today, only the last lap was good. WSBK is, well, circa a million times better.

re: "Everybody wants BMW there"

ummmn, no we don't. to show it wasn't a fluke, i want them to defend their championship in 2013. come 2014 i want them to release a new model homologating all the changes they've learned from the past 5 years of racing. then i want them to race and win with the MKII. there was no better camera shot in racing this weekend than the view from the side of the grid lined up for the start in russia. all that production kit, familiar and identifiable that YOU the "valuing fan" (not to be confused with the lot on crash) can go out and buy.

A note to - you should be required to show a picture of Marco's girl in any article about Melandri. Ditto Randy de Puniet and his fiance. Thank you.javascript:insertTextCursor('comment',%20':)')

BMW has obviously stepped up their game plus Biaggi keeps getting poor results and crashing however Melandri is riding well. Hopefully, Biaggi and others can get their acts straight to make the results even closer. It would be nice to see the championship go to the last race and maybe even the last corner to determine the champion. WSB is still more interesting than MGP by a mile.
