Another good QP but you get the feeling the start will again make or break the race for him. If he gets clean air in front then it could be another Brno. Got to make that start though!

From times set during runs and sector times his pace is only (just) bettered by Lorenzo, be nice to see it all come together and Cal manage to hang with Jorge & Pedrosa, its getting tedious with only the 2 of them in contention barring ill fortune......

Good effort but suspect it wont come to much due to his start and racecraft. And is it me? but he looks more and more like a slightly mad down and out every race. Good luck anyway.

Dear me some people are never happy are they.Vastly improved from last season,consistently beating factory riders and proving he belongs in the Moto GP paddock but we still get idiots spouting rubbish......some people need to get real.

He needs to improve not only his start, but how quickly he get's "on it" in the race. Too often he loses places in the first few corners and when he does he has trouble getting those places back.

He could improve his overtaking, but given his recent qualifying performances what he really needs to do is work on not losing places in the first place.

Give the guy a break ! He's putting on a marvelous show for a second year rider on a satellite bike. He knows where he needs to improve and he knows that you have to be regularly bl00dy fast before you can ease off a touch and make consistency a weapon.
Ducaudi must be kicking their own a$$es for not completing the deal with Cal.
And Cal must be realising that he's better off with Tech3, maybe not financially, but certainly in terms of potential successes.

I actually think its worth a bet that Cal could steal the win. It is about time we had a different name on that top step. We all know its gonna happen.
