MotoGP » Dovi emerges on top in Crutchlow podium battle


'I knew Cal would be pushing very hard at the end of the race because a few times we have battled together like this and I have beaten him, so I knew he would not be giving up without a fight' - Andrea Dovizioso

Dovi gelled with the M1 nicely and kicked both Spies and Cal's butt.

Dovi better enjoy this season with the Yamaha cause next year will be tough riding the Ducati.

Dovizioso is an underrated rider. This year we're seeing what he's capable of in the right environment. His personal style - understated, modest, polite - makes a nice contrast with Crutchlow's bombast and misfiring, frequently inappropriate, "sense of humour." There's plenty he can learn from Dovizioso, and not just on the track.

Good Dovi you kicked both Cal's and Mr Mediocre Spies's butt. It's a great shame riding M1 and getting beaten by satellites, at least that never happened to Rossi even when he was injured.

Little to choose between Dovi and Cal , Dovi craftier and Cal probably quicker but remember craft can be learnt but speed you either have it or not !Nevertheless two satellite riders always near the front ,good luck to them both , yes they are different but both likeable ! Thought Ben did quite well your hardly a slouch getting a 5th!

Spies would have more points than Cal if he and Cal traded places :)

Spies never had a chance this year, and you cannot achieve points if you cannot get a setup, Spies has had good performance the last two years, but this year hes gone from almost being able to win races/podium to fighting with CRTs and having huge mechanical failures. Yamaha dont care about Spies, please stop pretending Spies has a chance. Tech 3 are taking care of both of their riders, probably Cal to a greater extent.

Dovi and Spies would waste Jorge and Cal as a team on equal machinery.

& all the ******* who said Cal would dominate Dovi, well you have more meat in your heads than Cal.
