'I am way down on the timesheets and a long way behind Andrea and we are both on the same bike and the same tyres, so it is clear that we have a lot of work to do to improve tomorrow' - Cal Crutchlow

How many tjmes have we heard Cal say "We've got a lot of work to do" then plant it on the front row?

Fully confident he can get a good qualifying session under his belt and a decent result on saturday night / sunday morning

Stop-and-go tracks like Motegi aren't really amenable to Cal's style, which typically depends on high mid-corner speed. Unfortunately for him, riders like Dovi are proficient on all types of circuit, so he needs to overcome that deficit.

That said, one of his biggest improvements this year is his ability to work through setup problems and find solutions, so I'd expect a more competitive pace in FP3 and QP.

good point, but how many times has he put it on the front row and then not been able to back it up to finish on the podium, usually to be beating by Dovi.

and before you come at me, im not bagging Cal, just a fact,
hopefully he can maybe sneaks a podium or 2 in the races that are left, but him beating Dovi is going to be a big ask.

Lets face it Dovi beats him nearly everytime. Britains search for a motogp champ goes on. Hes a top ten rider whos never going to be an Alien. He should beat smith next year though as smith will only last a couple of races before hes dropped.

Wake up Trolls how many seasons has Cal done compared to Dovi ??? Cal is very close to Dovi and is still learning
once Cal strings it all together he will be up with the Aliens he is made of the right stuff
It also shows what an excellent racer Dovi is so stop trolling and grow up
Just so as you armchair racers know everyone on that grid from first to last is very very fast riders some just never get the best kit
