Just keep finishing races and getting points. A shame he was almost taken out twice at PI, seems as though hes got some of that bad luck hanging around his neck from last year. Hope he shakes it off and gets as much or more out of his tires as the Aprilia. Brave fight for 3rd last round.

He's better off getting all that bad stuff out of way early in the season, get as much good results as he can and then come back strong after the second half.

For the many who were wondering, Marco tweeted that he had just arrived home and Manu was already asleep. Let's hope that means she will be seen at races again. Her enthusiasm and un-hidden emotions are a treat to see.

Always been something about Melandri that I haven't clicked with but he is a super consistant rider that deserves some good results. And as Rico said, get all the bad luck out the way early and hopefully get back up ther at the top!

He'll have some stiff competition from the Aprilia's though they're on fire!

Melandri makes the BMW look better than it really is. When the factory bikes and satellite bikes fight at the front the way aprilia does the I'll believe they have built a decent bike.

Melandri wastes too much time trying to keep the bike from spitting him out at every corner.

A lot of power but no control.
