What is certain is that Melandri is genuine about the tyre problem. Quite frankly though I wish him the best I doubt very much than he will be able to catch up, others are very competitive, I am especially impressed with the Aprilia Machines

@ Motojunky, probably an ultra sensitive subscriber! I know we're not the only ones that watch her jumping up and down when Marco wins...........why else would they switch the cameras to just her reaction!! :)

re: "In race two, I could certainly have been on the podium but instead the rear tyre began to vibrate from lap two onwards"

"I don't care how "off" your settings might be, surely they can't be so bad they destroy a tire within the first 3 laps."

it can, if the tire spins on the rim at the start of the race and goes out of balance....? that's what this smells like. it's rare, but it happens. there's no crying in baseball and there aren't any bead-locks in roadracng.
