Just watched it, damn dissapointing result but exciting race, that Kawi dropped like a rock once it dried out. I really think the other bikes are developing and the ZXRR is not, so baicaly Melandri has got the best out of the bike, but there just ain't no parts or development, a shame really, their is potential race winning talent there.

i dont think so, i think that Marco's wet set up was perfect for him and his dry set up was wrong, and he should have used the med compound dry tire (hell do well again). Great race though, unfortunately Nicky is having a rough time.

I love how Kawasaki always advertises "lime green is pride" and there they are, too gay to even commit enough effort and support to paint their bikes.

He was very very slow in all the dry sesions, they had time to set the bike up for the dry. Historically Mugello has not been a good track for Kawi ZXRR at all, so yes I am hopefull we will see top 5 results from him again this year, but I would not be suprised if the best performances are behind Hyate. You can not do well in MGP without developing the bike as the season progresses.

Gos Melandri looks so good in the wet too what a shame. I know we would all love to see more progress and development but Marco is riding his ass off, good for him!

No doubt, he is proving himself a championship caliper rider

Im really impressed with Marco and the bike. There is not too much difference this year from last year when talking average lap times, so if Hyate works with what they have, they can do well.

I thought I was in Bazzaro world when Melandri passed Stoner and then Rossi. He even made it look easy! It's time for Kawi to step up and get back in the game, they have a great rider on their bike.

I was so excited when I saw Melandri in first, then when he got on the dry tires I think they put a 600 cc engine in that bike with a 160/50 rear tire... He never looked even a little comfortable on that thing after he changed bikes.
