People are starting to get a bit fed up with Hectors tactics now.Cal clearly pointed the finger of blame at him today.
But a second row start is a good position for Cal and i hope he gets a good result from it as long as his ankle holds up.Lets have another storming performance like Silverstone!

"Hector Barbera is a complete idiot. He doesn't deserve to be riding on this grid if he rides like that in practices. All he ever does is follow anyone, he's never doing a lap time on his own, and where is he in the race ? To be riding around like that is just ridiculous."

I'm glad that riders are calling Barbera out. It's about time! Crash.net members have been doing it forever (and having his colleagues do it just adds validity to what we can all see).

Totally disagree. Hector is often the first or second quickest Ducati and does pretty well on a sh.t bike. Dont think Crutchlow would do any better on the same machine. Still hasnt finished on the podium despite aving the best bike out there.

Ankle injury ? Thought it was his leg ? According to Eurosport was his leg and not his ankle. With all due respect I think a painful injury, not a break.
Anyway, Cal, try being a bit more modest. You are not there yet.

tomcol, its not the first time ive seen incorrect info posted in your comments.

Best Bike? Its clear that you dont like Cal for whatever reason, but his bike is far from the best. Im not sure if you really understand how different it is to the factory yamaha's, but its behind them, and the factory hondas (3 definate, maybe 4 including the near factory spec bike), so if you discount the Ducati's for a minute (even though the performance of the bike is hugely debatable), that makes Cal's bike the 6th/7th best bike out there. Cal is not expected to podium on that bike, thats the whole point, and thats why a podium would be a great acheivement.

Regarding Cal's 'modesty', what makes you come out that comment? What part of the article makes you think this? He is just saying what everyone else is thinking about Barbara, right?

And you even say Barbara is 'often the first or second quickest Ducati'? Hardly often, and even if he is quicker is qualifying, we all know why.

Wait till pcx sees
