    FWIW: What a difference a year makes!

    Last year at this time World SBK was heading to Silverstone with BMW in first place in the Manufacturer Championship with a 2 point lead over Aprilia after Marco Melandri pulled the double at Brno. They would leave Silverstone after expanding that lead to 13.5 points.

    Jakub Smrz pushed his Ducati to the Pole with a 2:20.810. Race 1 would see Baz ride his Kawasaki to the top podium spot with Fabrizio and Badovini of BMW Motorrad Italia taking the other two slots. Race 2's podium was dominated by Ducati riders taking Guintoli and Smrz taking P1 and 3 with Baz settling for P2.

    Fast forward to 2013 and the post Moscow standings are:
    1 Aprilia - 300 pts
    2 Kawasaki - 267 pts
    3 BMW - 262 pts
    4 Honda - 151 pts
    5 Suzuki - 129 pts
    6 Ducati - 112 pts

    The wet Moscow Round didn't tell us much. The BMW riders can qualify better than their to date average numbers. Pit stops in WorldSBK may be full of strategy and drama but are incredibly slow. Melandri and Davies can ride in the rain. The five day forecast for Silverstone includes wet weather so all of this may bode well for BMW.

    Aprilia should end the weekend still in P1 and Ducati in P6. The real question to be answered is how the BMW Motorrad Italia riders and team will perform in the aftermath of the BMW Motorrad end of season exit from WorldSBK announcement. I have the question down. We will be no doubt be treated to a variety of speculation. I have no clue what the answer will be.

    Stay tuned.

    Looking forward by looking back at -

    Crashes opened and closed the Q1 session.

    Fabrizio crashed during his out lap. He was able to return to the pit for repairs. He was able to salvage a P15 for the session a full two seconds off his FP1 | P3 pace. With the night to fully repair the bike and allow the rider to recover he should advance to SP1. How much farther he goes depends on the success of the R&R

    Q1 was winding down. Sykes, the only rider in the 2'05 range, headed out to turn a last hot lap and promptly crashed.

    The stakes for the Suzuki SP round have risen. In the closing minutes positions moved. Camier was able to reprise his P2 from the practice session. This hints of a Suzuki solidly on row 1 ahead of Hondas of Rea and Haslam currently P4,5. The battle for P4 in the Manufacturer Championship is heating up. Unfortunately it is heating up in front the BMW duo.

    Melandri had held P4 for much of the session but finished P8. For my money, if you can not have the pole spot P4 is the next sweet grid spot. I do not expect much more from Q2 for Melandri. He will advance to SP1 and has the potential for a strong showing there. If BMW is going to remain in the title hunt he must have a strong weekend.

    Davies improved slightly. P14 in FP1 his Q1 time puts him P12 just behind Badovini and his Ducati but ahead of Neukirchner and Checa on theirs. He must do better in Q2 and SP1.

    Speed remains a issue for both riders. Sykes provisional pole shows a top speed of 286.7 for his Kawasaki. Melandri turned a 291.3, almost 5kph faster but he was not able to carry speed in and out of corners in a way that converted into better lap times and position. Davies showed a 285.9. While this is more in line with Sykes it shows he too is having problems managing the twisty bits and with his setup does not have the top end to make up for it.
