Hmmm, that's an interesting and enlightened approach to racing - co-operate with your team mate instead of making beating your team mate the first priority. There are plenty of top riders who don't share data with team mates. I wonder which factory team he was referring to, because let's face it there aren't that many, are there? There's BMW, Kawasaki, Ducati (Honda and Suzuki are not factory teams). So that's Melandri, Sykes or Checa being tight ****s.

Good luck to you Eugene, 2013 will be another great year for WSB and us, the punters.

Althea wasn't a factory team, that's interesting because out of the factory teams only Haslam was faster at beginning of season and slower at the end! But wouldn't have thought that of Haslam.

it wouldnt have been sykes as he's been quicker all year compared to his team mate, so has johnny rea so that rules those 2 out

like you said Ellis, haslam was quicker than melandri then it all turned round! i couldnt see checa doing it. who knows!?! interesting comment though, i do like laverty and sykes they say it how it is and seem like honest guys fair play to them

All this year I have been thinking that Norge was capable of going faster, and next year he will have the advantage of a years experience with the Aprilia team and their bike.
But- Guinters had some great results this year despite hopping between different teams and bikes, and next year with a top team he is likely to shine even more brightly.
I hope their good relationship survives a year of fierce competition, but they are both clean riders so I expect them to spur each other to even more success.

think about it guys hes having a dig at max(quicker that laverty at the start of the year but not the end!) much like leon calmier he got shafted by the fact that max was no1 at aprilia and got whatever he wanted

the "bad" guy is probably Haslam, he was pretty strong until Donnington incident... That also explains his "head case" in the last half of the season when he was destroyed by Melandri.
