    Even Delbianco on the private entry finishes ahead.

    This is a clear illustration of why top guys are reluctant to make comebacks - they don't always have what they used to.

    Perhaps the greatest exception to this was the late and great Mr Hailwood.:(

    So it would seem Bautista has not renewed his contract yet as HRC are keen to have him on the all new Honda for 2020!!

    If Honda does not release a new bike, then no Bau will help them

    That's the point....... Bau is obviously interested at the prospect of helping Honda win with the new bike! ;)

    In the championship, the situation is very difficult for him, but there are still chances, especially if the Rea falls somewhere.
    They changed places. Rea had been waiting for this before.

    More talk of Bautista and the '2020 new Honda' in this week's MCN.

    More fuel in the new 2020 Blade fire?:)

    Watching free practise and Eurosport commentator said the 2020 HRC WSBK project/bike is delayed. No other details yet though.

    So that would leave Bautista without a ride or are the KTM Moto gp return rumours true?

    No idea, they just made that comment and moved on. Don't know if they said any more about it later or.

    KTM rumours I've seen are more around Olivera getting bumped up to a full factory ride, but that is more for the MotoGP thread :)

    Was the superpole race televised?? I can't seem to find it in any of my recordings!! :mad:

    Just watching race 2.......coverage has been a bit hit and miss. Race 2 grid walk and straight to race start with no warm up lap?? Or is my new Virgin v6 box playing up.

    Hang on...... 12 laps to go..... Cuts to ad break and rejoins with 7 laps to go!!!

    Come on Eurosport sort it out..... Oh and while you're at it, please sack Greg Haines. ANNOYING ANNOYING ANNOYING!!! o_O
