    Congrats Checa and Ducati. They’re not underdogs in this class, but without them it’s just a series for fours. Hope Ducati changes their mind on where to put their resources and what to do with their trellis frame for 12.

    Pretty good race. Carlos Checa finally gets his World Championship, with style. Max would have tried his best but this season, it probably wouldn’t have been enough. Congratulations Carlos and Ducati, well done!

    Awesome riding all season by El Toro Carlos Checa, very well deserved, and that Ducati is unbeatable…
