Yeah Dovi out scored Crutchlow, but this is only Crutchlow's second year in GP racing. Dovi has not only more experience on GP bikes but GP tracks as well, he also had a factory Honda ride which he didn't set the world on fire with. Dovi performed pretty much as expected this year, whereas Cal was definitely a cause for surprise for a lot of people, probably himself included.

I think Rossi will be coming up soon, as he is a very talented rider and did well to beat Bradl to second place on the Duck. Unfortunately the parts that were used that day were over stressed and could not cope with the excessive talent of the rider as they were made by Mr Dolmio king of pizza sauce. Although it was nice to see Mr Valentino having fun on his cheese grater. Next year he will whoop everyone and hopefully get 12 wins!!!

Dovi was slightly quicker then Cal when he rode the third factory Yam,after he signed for Ducati he had his toys removed and was slower than Cal,over all Cal is faster but tends to slip up while pushing the bike

Rossi has to be in the top 10.
He gave Ducati his ALL during the season, remember the bad mouthing he did at the start of the year, only he did that, no other ducati rider.
Come on guys, he needs to be in the top 10 and number 1 or he will start bad mouthing everyone once again.

Love his moaning...
The other races dont like me, please make them stop

kind of hard to understand the irrational fans who say Cal performed this well when he only managed a couple podiums with a bike with a huge tire advantage.

Cal crashed out of too many races and finished behind Vale, I have a hard time understanding how he performed so well. If Cal wants to improve he needs to up his race craft and stop crashing, that has always been his problem really though, everyone knows hes got the speed, and this year with a bike with a tire advantage we saw that Cal still has a lot to learn about keeping it rubber side down.

That said, Dovi did really well, imo, better than Cal, and its only the Brits who will see Cal's performance over Dovi's even if Dovi finished a few places higher on the same bike. & Nobody is getting the factory bits unless their name is Lorenzo, Cal is still complaining, Ben's bike was broken half the year and Dovi slowed down after he signed with Ducati, ...

Maybe Rossi will get lucky, but he will be working with Jorge's bike, which ha

has really gone the wrong way since 2010, in my opinion.

HRC have a much better bike, and Ducati are hobbled by the tire selection, Jorge needs to thank the guy that Casey kicked to the can for his title.

Hayden deserved to be in the top 10 ahead of Rossi. He outqualified Rossi and rode the Ducati so hard he would wear the tires out and his effort led to his injury which stopped him beating Rossi in the championship.
