You have to accept that Max is the world champion but he is a very lucky champ. With the cameras on him a lot last sunday in the race and in the garage he made me edgy just watching. I have know doubt he should retire but it is his call.

My prediction: Biaggi will be persuaded to stay on in 2013 to give Aprilia time to groom a replacement for 2014.

If not, I reckon Badovini alongside Laverty. Though Badovini had a very anonymous year, he almost cracked the top ten again and the second-best scoring BMW rider in the second-half of the year (better than Fabrizio and Haslam). He's also Italian, which wouldn't hurt.

Won't be surprise if Biaggi decide to continue for another year. Remember he started competitive racing very late at 17/18 years of age. He should still be in the top 4 next year.

Can't understand why folks are so anti-Biaggi...he's been a top rider for the best part of 20 years, winning his first title in 1994. Some milestones along the way...won in his first 500 MotoGP (beating Doohan) and won his first WSB race AFTER a year away from the sport! One of the greats....cut the guy some slack! Unless you want of course to copy the WSB commentators who have long had it in for Max.

@ Pete

I could not have written that better myself, spot on mate!

And Mr Burnicle and Mr Whitham want sacking for their bias against Max, its a disgrace!

It so must have hurt when Max claimed the title by so little! Ha, ha! I am SOOOOO HAPPY!

I have no issue with jack and can't blame them for supporting the Brits to the hilt...I don't think either of them would take away from max's achievements...

I was screaming for the Grinner to win but can accept it happily to see Biaggi as a great Champion..I also like that he still has the passion and ability to win races and become champion at the grand old age of 41..i think people are too quick to put people on the scrap pile just down to being supposedly too old...if you've still got the ability and the passion why shouldn't you carry on racing??
