Not so soon ! He has certainly set up a great foundation.Consistency is key for him and Aprilia and they know it as do Checa and Melandri. An intrigueing run to the title remains.
Theoretically, Aragon should prove decisive when 4 cylinder HP extends its legs again.
Why do I mention GP expats ? That arena/experience gives them an edge from womb to tomb.
As the 'backmarker' qualifiers emphasised,none more so than Max on the day, you blink you lose.Carlos and Marco ditto.

Nothing boring at all. Even SBK riders are comming to grips with a fundamental.
Clear out at the front as soon as possible. Entertainment is secondary in terms of results.
