Battered my arsche!!! Follow him on twitter, he's been playing Golf all day lol

Fair play it was a bad crash, I am not a Leon hater by any stretch. Met him, he's real down to earth and a lovely lad but i'm starting to think he has had his time now in WSB. I'll be 1st in the Q for an autograph next year at Oulton. Come back to the UK where the racing is good and the crack is even better...

A lot of it IS down to bad luck. Poor sod must think Marco's painted a target on the back of his leathers half the time.

Off the top of your head can you seriously think of another top rider in WSB who has been run into, run off the track and generaly obstructed by other riders this season?

I would be totally pleased to see Leon stick it big time to Melandri.

I think Leon is going to early to win the race,same could be said about Sykes.Marcos working it like Checca last year,wait and wait to their tyres are gone then pounce.

I like Haslam but if you believe only bad luck has kept him off the podium then the contrary (good luck) is all that has kept Melandri on it. Bottom line Haslam hasn't performed to expectations and we are seeing the difference between top flight (MGP) talent and BSB talent. I liek Haslam but Melandri and Biaggi are in a different class. Certainly so is Checa but the clearly outclassed Ducati is down on speed and therefore hampered. It's not luck.

Time now for Haslam to think of the team and the potential titles and help his teammate for the rest of the season win the two titles if possible.

If Checa and Biaggi are in a different class how comes Haslam has beaten them both before and beaten Checa in the championship.

He is just having a bad year like Spies, give the guy a break.

@ farl cogetty

"any news for next season????"

Now that Chaz Davies has signed for BMW, seems a cert that Leon will be with Ten Kate Honda for 2013. Most likely with J.Rea as his team mate.
