I can scarcely believe Ducati fans complaining about a possible bias in the rules. How many years were Ducati given advantages that allowed them to take the title year after year? When they were allowed 1000cc engines and the 4's restricted to 750cc for example. Or 1199 compared to 999? There's a reason why WSBK was called the Ducati World Championship by many.

its shaping up to be a couple of good races. jonny rea will be fine as long as they stop the rear brake binding again and dont waste a day blaming it on the new electronics,eh lads,lol !
him and haslam are possibly killing time as theres rumours they will be on the v4 next year.

the panigale didnt look too short on top speed at philip island,im sure it will be right there at most tracks,though with all the hungry young racers pushing hard it wont be easy for carlos.
great to see chaz keeping up his good run after a lot of years on uncompetitive machinery.
the last few seasons he has really shown he is the real deal,he is a clever kid with a good racing brain that has future champion written all over him.

S***w Ducati.... they were given to many advantages over the years at the expense of everyone else. Now that they can't hang- everyone whines. More than enough other bikes on the grid that need to win one.

PI isnt a track for braking and accelerating, thats why Ducati does so well there, usually. Stop and go circuits will challenge the Ducati, and it seems they dont have the 2010 tires, so it will be even more of a challenge, looks a lot like last year's tires, so I cant see Aprilia losing too much ground at any of the tracks. BMW might be able to get close, Kawasaki will have to settle for 3rd at best in the dry, Sykes can make the tires last in the wet though. That pretty much sums up this season, but it will still be 10x better than MotoGP. Cause different makes have half a chance and favoritism isnt so off the hook, and the commentary, oh how the commentary IS SOO MUCH BETTER from Jack & James.

prof-x, while I agree with you about the commentary, I have no idea what you are on about in the rest of your post. Who would have 2010 tyres in 2013 anyway? As for your ramble "summing up the season", I can't see how anything can be summed up after just one round of the series.
