Guintoli in charge at Aprilia.
Sykes as usual,when needed is there.
Giugliano 1,2s faster than Davies,unbelivable.
Melandri well behind Elias,let the spaniard be official next year.

"Melandri well behind Elias,let the spaniard be official next year."

Doubt it he's even more underwhelming than Melandri only thing helping them this weekend is a long straight fastest bike and flowing corners.

V4Poweeeer,

What's to lose?Albesiano says everything has been done to accommodate Melandri,it's up to him to deliver.Smells like fracture,Melandri is on one year deal with option for second and was brought by previous management.With the leader settled Guintoli,Elias has been fine so far on a small team with little support.

waxen wane: Any reason for Melandri's lackluster performance?


He's saving it for the race? Yes he's in 4th but nearly a second down which is unusual. The slower bikes will be lapped.

Why aren't the max speeds listed? It gives more info.

"Elias has been fine so far on a small team with little support."

I don't know what support he is getting but given his background which is similar to Melandris he's underperforming.

Privateer Aprilias have won races in the past but Elias is yet to look like he will podium.

The red devils team may be the problem though they Fibrizio didn't do anything with them so the team might be to inexperienced with the equipment.

Melandri and Elias will be in some trouble if they aren't retained by their present teams.

The Aprilia hasn't gotten worse since last year it just proves riders like Davies and Laverty are more versatile riders on superbikes compared to the GP born and bred.

Either that or both riders will slip into anonymity before to long.
