Ducati wins the Builder's championship, Spies needs tires. I gather he'll have to win 2 for 2 in 3 weeks to win the championship.

Even if he doesn't win the Championship he will go down in WSBK history as one of the winningest rookies ever.

Cool

Don't understand why he would change his set-up from the first race? Specially after he won it. Loved the first race where he was bringing up the rear tire most ever lap. See that Dr.Sprocket.

Heat. Ben went with the harder tire thinking it would last longer. Oddly, it was a bad tire not tire choice that sacked him. He just never got the grip he needed to stay with the top three. Bet Pirelli hears about it.
