Spoiler alert!!

Wow, Chaz Davies has really been ripping it up lately. Another win in race 1 in Quatar. I know he's too big and too tall to compete against the Moto GP munchkins, but I'd really like to see what he could do on a Ducati in Moto GP.

Nice to see Ducati and Chaz with 10 wins this season.
Thanks from mark419ny, ScrapperX and GunMoto

I think he may get a wildcard ride on a Ducati GP bike eventually as a reward for what he has done for them in WSBK. Fingers crossed. I know he has said he would like a shot in GP.

Looks like the Panigale is on par or faster than the Kawi now. Rea was in the slip stream multiple times and couldn't draft past Chaz. So much for the perceived HP advantage for the Kawi.

Don't mean to poo poo on everyone's parade as Chaz has been killing it lately. However, Rea hasn't needed to race Chaz for several rounds now. There was no need for Rea to push the envelope today. Had he needed to beat Chaz today for the title, this race "may" have turned out differently.

Everyone including Rea disagree with you. Rea even said in an interview that he may have a slight advantage for one lap, but Chaz has been the only one to put in race distance and lap in the low 57s and 58s. No one could match him. So, no, Rea wasn't beating Chaz. Face it, chaz has been the best rider since the summer break and it hasnt been close.

Rea would and have tried to be 1st every race since the beginning. I know... I watched every race this year.

And you know that Chaz WON more races than Rea? ...

BTW, go look at the races Chaz has won this year, he wins by 5 secs or more, destroying the field. Rea wins, less than a second. When Chaz has the feeling with the bike, game over. Let's see what happens in race 2 now that Rea has the ship. Go hard or go home. I have Chaz for the win.
