Toseland's poor luck continues at Imola

James Toseland's disappointing end to his tenure at Yamaha continues at Imola as he fails to finish either race.
At the time where he is still looking for a World Superbike ride in 2011, James Toseland suffered his worst event of the season at Imola with a double DNF.

The Briton, already on the back foot after qualifying down in 17th position, made good strides at the start of both races as he quickly moved into the top ten.

However, neither race would last longer than eight laps as he suffered a mechanical problem in race one, before falling in the second encounter, a double DNF that puts him under pressure in the battle for a top ten finish overall.

“After the warm up this morning I felt really confident,” he said. “The Yamaha team worked really hard overnight last night and the bike I had today felt really good. Unfortunately we had a technical issue in race one when I felt I could have challenged for the podium."

Toseland remains seventh in the overall standings, but is now just 22 points ahead of tenth place Troy Corser.

“Once again in race two I fought hard in the early stages and had the pace to go for the podium. It just seems that luck isn't with me at the moment but I'm going to try and win a race in Magny Cours as it's a place that's always bought me luck."

Say what you like against Toseland but to go from 17th to 6th in 4 laps was impressive riding and a shame the bike wasn't up to the job in hand.The Yamaha has not been a very good bike this year,last years machine won the title in BSB and WSB and this year nobody has done much with it,Crutchlow has certainly gotten along better with it but even his true potential hasn't been helped by the handling issues they've had.If Toseland does go to BMW next year he will be one to watch.He still has what it takes to win the title,just needs a bike that suits his riding style and the R1 hasn't been that bike.He will be much better off away from Yamaha.He's still one of the best riders out there whether you agree with that or not.
