I wonder what's going on in Dosoli's head now... bet he wants Marco to snatch the title - and now he has another potential title contender in the team. Will he favourite Marco or not? Chaz, beware of some suspicious mechanical 'failures' further in the season...

Marco has a dodgy shoulder, we all know how long it took Vale to get over that one, long after the broken leg had healed.....
If it is particularly bad i think we are not going to see the Marco of the last couple of seasons this year as it could take months to feel right. He didn't seem himself yesterday and would have been a bit further back if it wasn't for mechanicals/injuries and dnf's in the rest of the field.
The team and BMW may be thanking their lucky stars that Chaz seems capable of mounting a title challenge

Steady on, we're two rounds into the season - waaaaay to early to consider conspiracy theories!

Melandri didn't have a great weekend (and he said his shoulder was fine), but 3rd and 5th aren't results to be sniffed at anyway, so he isn't exactly adrift.

BMW never handed down team orders to Melandri and Haslam, but Melandri was prepared to race his team-mate for the win, which Haslam probably wasn't until it actually happened. After that he became his own worse enemy as Melandri got better and better.

Davies on the other hand... I think he can be just as brutal as Melandri if it comes to it. But we really are talking about hypotheticals here, let's wait until there are two rounds remaining before worrying about mind games and team orders.

I remember when Haslam was hovering around 6-8th position last year everyone was complaining that the team was working against him, Davies results this weekend pretty much completely ruin that conspiracy theory. Nothing against Haslam who I think is a great racer, but after 4 races so far he's still placing in the same ranks. Honestly didn't expect much from Melandri over the weekend because even if his shoulder felt fine, it's still going to take awhile to get back to full fitness, I think a 3rd and 5th are excellent from just coming back from surgery. We'll see how the rest of the season emerges, but it should be another really competitive year
