I agree that Laverty will be strong on the R1 next year. I'm hoping for race wins from him. However, the real key to success for him is Yamaha ironing out the handling woes the R1 had this year, particularly with regard to tire wear. They're going into testing with a revised frame geometry and new forks, and Crutchlow has been going through extensive debriefs with the engineers in Japan so that they can try and nail the problem. If they can do that then Eugene will have a championship-capable machine beneath him. I'm looking forward to seeing what he can do.
