Melandri hails 'unbelievable' double win

Coming in the week that BMW announced it is moving its factory operation to the satellite BMW Italia team in 2013, the German manufacturer is also now leading the manufacturers' standings for the first time since it made its WSBK debut in 2009.

“I am living my dream today. Securing my first double victory here in Brno on this race track is something special for me. I am so happy because I already have five victories this season and nobody expected that.

“Seeing BMW leading the manufacturers' championship is unbelievable and it makes me proud. I was also able to close the gap to Max in the riders' championship. But the season is still long, and we plan race by race.

“I want to thank everybody at BMW Motorrad and in the race team who work so hard every day and put so much effort in the project. It was so unbelievable and emotional to see them smiling and happy. Now I just want to celebrate this result.”

So according to the brits, BMW is favoring Melandri and Aprilia must be making a special bike for Biaggi since Lavergy or Camier couldn't beat him. Maybe its just that the level of competition at BSB isnt as high as the british media has lead you to believe...
