MCN Donington Park WSB: Vermeulen set to ride at Donington, but unlikely to race

Chris Vermeulen will make his long awaited return to racing this weekend when first free practice kicks off for the MCN-backed Donington Park WSB round, but it is unlikely he will actually race on Sunday. The factory Kawasaki man completed 30 laps at Cadwell Park on Wednesday and while it was positive for him to be back on a bike, he...

Hold on...

... it IS his fault he's injured... he crashed trying to play catchup, "making rookie mistakes" with a knackered gear box.

Just retire...

 

I think he needs to grow some balls and race this weekend. he's been out of action for over a year now and still he hasn't competed in a race. He has tried to come back on several occasions since and he never decides to ride, woman.

His return to WSB has been a disaster, Sykes and Lascorz will beat him even when he's 100% fit

Give credit.

Not done anything...

..he has won more MOTOGP races than spies, edwards, any british rider, hopkins, RdPuniet etc.
..he has won more WSBK race and WSS races than many of the current crop.

One crash which shatters his legs putting himout of action is hardly call to say he has done nothing - though judging the tonality of the MCN fanbase these days unless your in Bright Yellow or Repsol colours what ever you do doesnt mean shit....

What one win.

Compared to Spies fair assessment but #11 is better all round.

Achievements wise.WSS champion in 2003 WSBK runner up in 2005 6 podiums in his home round 2006 his first finishing ahead of a certain Mr Rossi 1 win Le Mans 2007 followed by another three podiums Donington, Laguna and Misano and final position of 6th then in 2008 he got two back to back podium finishes Sachensring and his fav circuit Laguna again final position of 8th then in his final year which was difficult for him 12th place and a horrible way to say goodbye to the Suzuki Team he has been unlucky ever since he jumped on the Ninja.
