Shame that, Leon has been looking pretty fiesty now the bike has got a wee bit more will actually creep past a Ducati on the straight now, just a pity that the Aprilia, BMW, Kawasaki and even the Honda still fly past fast enough to take the paint off....must be very frustrating when the bike appears to handle so well. If Big Jack & co had kept the operation in house rather than get involved with Yoshimura then maybe things would have run smoother and been a bit more competitive in their first season, but I'm guessing they couldn't raise the budget to stay independent.

pp916, too right about the top end power of that bike, to see it barely get by the Ducati on the straight was so ridiculous it was almost amusing. As you say it's gotten better, but still...

And what is going on with Hopper? Is he still suffering effects from injuries or is there something else. With Leon starting to get the results now one would of thought Hopper would too. Considering the epic finale Hopper gave us last year (along with Hill) it's a bit sad to see.

Just remember it's their first year in WSB too, hopefully next year we'll see a big improvement across the board. It's not like they've had either to kit or the data to really compete.
Finger's x'd for next year

Good to see Leon coming good at last. Fortune seems to be shining on Max now though, some huge slices of luck the weekend.
Hope Camier can keep his ride next year or at least stay in the class.
