I think Baz could be faster on that bike, but I suspect that Sykes carries a lot of clout on that team, so I doubt he will have the chance to challenge Sykes if it ever came to that.

Is like in Motogp with Lorenzo and Rossi now again with Yamaha.. people just never remember that the rider that is developing the bike have other knowhow other feel with the bike.. allways have more confidence and know exacly how the bike will worck... And thats exacly the diferene between Tom and Baz..!! Aim shure that when Baz learn how to use better the Kawa he will be at the top more times but to beat Tom he will have to wock hard!! Even in Wsbk the electronic package is starting to make Gaps, and the Factory bikes is like im Motogp they allways performe better.. Is close racing yeah we have other caind of battles yeah but the history is the same, if you are well supported you will be better if not you will be last..

Lets see what will change with Dorna and the new rules.. If is to reduce costs and put this bikes more close to production models i agree and this will bring more manufacters to race so all perfect...

I disagree. Let's not forget he's young. Relatively inexperienced. I don't think Kawasaki would intentionally slow him down as that would hurt their chances of manufacturer's title which I don't doubt they would love to take.

Baz was much more consistent this year. I think we will see an even stronger showing from him next year.
