As much as I respect Cal but I have to say he deserves no more that sat Yamaha end of the story. Dovi ate him on exactly the same bike, now forget about Rossi. It is ridiculous that riders like Smith get sat Yamaha and talents like Iannone gets only a sat Ducati. I am so interested to see how Smith/Cal do this season compared to Ducati boys!!

Word has it if Pol has a Moto2 season like everyone expects, he may be in to replace one of the Monster boys. Read somewhere he's been talking to someone at Yamaha. There's no room in the factory team for 2 seasons minimum. Anyone?

Lets get something straight here, Yamaha don't run their business like Honda who give out hand me down equipment to non factory riders.

The difference between Crutchlows bike and Lorenzo is something very minor, of course the factory team has to be the one to test new parts as the season goes on but right now the bikes are identical.

Crutchlow is not on level of Lorenzo or Rossi on the Yamaha but he definately has the biggest head.

Yes he can do a fast lap but i was really disappointed how many times Dovi beat him last year and how many times he throw away a podium.

Surprising that he was offered another 2 year deal. Dovi showed him how to do it last year, so I'd have thought this would be a make it or break year for him. Esp & Redding are going to be looking for a place next year & the M1 would be their best bet.

same, two year, they always seem to sign a two year deal, they offerd Dovi the same deal before Cal, but he wanted a factory ride an was waiting for yamaha but who you gona take a huge star or a wanabe... Given, Dovi is and has proven himself to be a contender but still.. I like him at Ducati, but think he should have taken the gresini ride at least then he would always be battling for top 5...

Gee, you guys are arguing about who is faster when they are still over 1.2 seconds slower than Stoners race time from last year... that's race time not practice time, let's see how the weekend progresses.

The show is really missing a leader who can drag the rest kicking and screaming towards the pinnacle of what we're here to see. Marquez may be the only bit of excitement all year as long as it not solely for doing his impersonation of a torpedo.
