Let Max have the pipe and slippers and give Eugene the attention he deserves.
Aprilia need to up their game too, the results flatter as BMW managed to have both riders crash umpteen times so throwing away the manufacturers title and Kawasaki was essentially a one man team and Ducati used an old model.
2013 will be fun, go Norge.

What's with the haters round here? Eugene did a pretty good job, and improved as the year progressed. First year on a new bike, that's fair enough. Next year needs a better start - ie continue the current trajectory. Should be fighting inside the top 5 then

How long more is Max hanging around tho?

wobblyman is talkin nonsense, what the fk has nakano got to do with the 2012 wsbk championship,thats right fk all,laverty was well trounced by an ol guy that might retire,after lifting the title,all we get from eugene is talk,with more talk, and then excuses,ifs and buts, one win on his favoured track, is hardly a fantastic performance on a super fast, best bike on the grid(lavertys says that).a poor effort all round,its good he has a two yr deal, or someone else would be on it nxt year,oh saying someone under performed, is not hating,its an observation

@ Max can do it
it does sound like you might be talking a bit of brown youself too. can you back up that ALL we get from eugene is talk,with more talk, and then excuses,ifs and buts?
Eugene had a bad start to the season, he was saying he couldnt get the best out of bike. he then said they solved the problem at one of the test sessions, and since that has been putting in much better performances, often on pace or ahead of his team mate. this would seem to go along with what he was saying. maybe you know him personally and know that they are excuses, or maybe not and you are just guessing. either way he probably didnt preform to alot of peoples expectations this season, hope he can pick up where he left off towards the end of this season.

@max can almost do it by himself
Nakano has absolutely nothing to do with it...except that he is one of only 3 people on the planet that has been team mate to Max on the rsv4,dontchaknow?
