Never say never

Careful, that's the golden boy of England right there... haha. Honestly, I know he's been injured a lot, but he's just not shaping on this bike. Hopefully things go better at Honda, but it's not gonna be easy.

He would have won at Donnington but for Marco Melandri (and Johnny Rea a little bit) but he could still win has plenty of stamina just needs right bike and some luck like the rest. Ten Kate Hondas seem good for the Brits

I agree with the above comment, I think Leon's heads been down a wee bit since that incident at Donnington as it became clear that Melandri was Number 1 and that Leon would probably be leaving.

I kind of agree with the first post. Leon is one of those guys that obviously has talent but just can never seem to put it together to make a serious championship run. He's had some top rides were obviously he was on a good team and bike because his teammate won the title (twice) or was there about and he didn't really factor in. I don't see a move to honda changing anything

puttin intermediate tyres on that track, and a jump start are NOT back luck... there are big mistakes.

Haslam should stop whining and take some responsability. I think he's fast and I'm happy he's got a contract for 2013, but the Bmw box has now two headcases

Correct 2nd still isn't a world tittle though first comment is spot on haslam arrives at a big spending BMW team and looks great takes a couple of podiums looks good for year two with BMW and then ...... Oh no they have signed a good rider melandri comes along everyone realises haslam is just average a bit like camier or byrne should stick to BSB where they will fight for the championship

And I thought it was just me who has noticed he's not won anything since he was about 15, has had some incredibly good rides and made a lot of mistakes (Assen?). I just don't rate him at all.
