This is going to be good racing. I hope Marco can close up the championship on Max.

With Max starting 14th and Carlos 2nd, one would hope that our guy will make a step up on Biaggi. Furthermore, since Melandri is starting three positions to his rear, one would hope that Carlos can keep him there. But, the question this year seems to be: can Checa keep his head on straight?
Don't get me wrong, I'd love to see him just put 'em away and get back on track for the championship. But, the results so far this season make that desired event rather questionable. And, both Melandri & Biaggi can run well at BRNO, but so can Carlos. So, it'd be up in the air except for this season's history. Which is why I'll be glued to the set when it airs.

The 1098R however has 1198cc (or there abouts). It is definitely not an 1199.

Both great races.
It seems Checa's heart just ain't there - either that or the bike just ain't there. I've seen him ride more agressive.
I'm sure the Championship is over for Ducati - just hope there plans for 2013 are layed out and ready NOW !
