He'd have been 1st if Lorenzo and Stoner had fallen off, he'd have been 7th if the riders behind him had better races, he wouldnt have finished if he'd have fallen off.

FACT IS Dani fell off!! Doesn't take anything away from Cal getting 3rd. Sick to damn death of all this "he wouldnt have done that if this, this and this if that hadnt have happened." Tough s***. It DID happen and that is the result!!

Well Fone Cal! Excellent race, kept your main rivals behind you, pulled away from them, and stayed on for the 3rd place!

Oh, and Happy Birthday for Monday!!

Some people might choose to be uncharitable about the podium, (ALL podiums by non-aliens this year have been opportunistic ones to some extent), but what is indisputable is that Cal rode a clean and very fast race today and finished only 5s behind Jorge on a bike that's certainly a couple of specs down on motor and electronics. Rides like this one and the one at Brno are indicators of just how far he's progressed as a MotoGP rider since last year. Congrats to him & team.
