Bit early to write off Sykes, he did finish, it could be either setup or nerves, would guess setup as Sykes is fearless in the wet usually.
Max is erratic, only still leading cos Melandri blew it 3 times on the trot and Sykes had a motor go bang.
Yep Sykes needs to win it and Max needs another headful of nerves.
Game on...

Tom needs is it 5th or 6th if Max crashes again?

No, he must be on lower step of the podium, gap is - 14.5 points. So he must collected. 16 points.

how lucky can sykes get! hes blowin his chance of a world title,and folded under pressure,with biaggi on the floor,sykes had to seize his chance and go for the win,but he could not,even in the kwacks favoured damp track,had he have won the race a win in the next would have almost assured him the title,3rd in the race aint good enough,he cant rely on max having another fall/poor result. in race two, looks like hes blowin it big time

@jony65 what you're kidding arnt you!! j rea of twice in one corner I think he's definitely crasher of the year. When you're bike steps out as many times as his did it's telling you youre riding above the limit and be careful johnie no brains just dosnt learn

one thing you can never say of biaggi is hes not a through and through racer,no cruising around to win the championship with a low position points collecting ride,he goes as hard as he can first race of the season or last.hope he gets this championship.

Tom needs to learn the softly softly approach of the ex GP riders to conserve his tyres. Don't agree it was a great race only for 1 lap in the middle.
One reason why Biaggi never made it to the top in 500/Motogp, pressure just gets to him, lets see in the second race how he holds out.
Melandri has to win so could be interesting.
