I honestly don't know how anyone can "disagree" with the above comments! All of Rea's teammates have underperformed and Rea has been very inconsistent himself :?

I hope they can both be more competitive next year, but I also hope that Honda jack up there act and supply decent bikes. The current Fireblade has little "fire" or "blade" attributes currently compared to the European rivals and even Kawasaki :p

I really look forward to see Haslam on the Honda. Looks like Honda wanted to keep Johnny in WSB with giving him the Repsol ride for 2 races. Only sorry it means another team minus for next year.

"it will enter Lorenzo Zanetti and Michael van der Mark in the World Supersport Championship too" - that part is very interenting too, it's worth another article.

Edit: there is already the one I wished, good job crash :)

I think is good choice for leon.. He allways rode well the Honda but was even better on the Suzuki, but Honda is better choice!! Its clear that honda dont have putting to much efort him Wsbk but Honda is Honda you allways have to count them.. Its Clear that thinghs gona change and they will return to competitive level.. I think is good for both riders and Leon is a fighter since i wach him.. I think the results this year dont speack for is talent!! A more natural bike like the Honda will be somethingh more familiar to him, just like waching Camier making is progresse on the Fixi Suzuki.. Anther great qualify for him to Portimao

Haslam's wife is too hot for him to be unemployed, great to know hes got a ride, hopefully he gets a fair shake in that garage, hope Honda (of Japan) bring some good support next year.

As a JR fan i am a little disappointed i thought he might have shown a bit more ambition this time, surely he must have had better options than staying on a bike that will never be competitive.
