@oh dear yes I know much of racing since I've done plenty of it. On bikes and in cars and spinning spanners. You?

The point is that FP2 was a missed opportunity for everybody, in all probability everybody would have gone faster. That's how it goes. You turn up with a rough idea of the settings you need, you go out in FP1 and adjust accordingly. FP2 is a bit faster you fiddle more and so on. Sure sometimes you occasionally take a backward step, but mostly you get faster.

So Crutchlow saying he was going to change this and that and as a result go faster is probably true, but it's probably true of everybody else too. Including those in front of him.

@Jimmy the point is that Crutchlow was talking as if he was the only one who would improve in FP2. With hindsight it's now easy to say this since Cal is fifth on the grid and eight tenths down, but that doesn't change what I said.
