Still appears to be slower on the straights, weather thats setup or engine i dont know, appears to be the fastest round corners but that kinda setup tends to see u get beaten up in races and struggle to do your own race.
Bike needs more power next year or a diff setup/riding style so he can compete to his potential on race day.

The boy has the pace, come on keep the faith. He's still only young (21). Remember Cal was 24 when he lifted the title and had alot more experiance. As did Eugene when he come so so close..
Give Sam (and Alex) time, they will be World Champions..

The Two fastest men of that Race were consistent were Scassa and Ellison. Ellison had to take evasive action when a bike blew up in front of him and knocked him back to 9th. He finished in 5th and he and Scassa were fastest. Robbed of his second podium. see worldsbk perugiatiming stats. for the day Gutted for Ellison

He's learning, and it looks like he's calmed down a tad.....he has a good foundation for next year and a stable team slot. Provided the bike is competitive I believe a more mature Sam will be in contention for next years championship from the outset and the wins/podiums will come naturally rather than trying to force it as he has been doing for a lot of this season.
