"As soon as Andrea got his start and wheelied into the side of me, then nearly wheelied off the back - we'd already lost near enough a couple of seconds in that" - Cal Crutchlow.

His interviews always make me either laugh or cringe!

I'm never sure whether Cal is just joking or intentionally trying to antagonise people when he gives interviews.

Personally I think its just humorous banter although he could probably do with some media training!

It is quite refreshing to have somebody speak their mind even if it is nonsense or harmful to their career. Makes a change to the robotic parc ferme interviews Dani & Jorge give.

"It is quite refreshing to have somebody speak their mind" ...

Nah. There was another guy just like Cal, but he was relentlessly hounded for speaking his mind ... and he never said even half the daft things Cal says.

I do like Cal and he is riding the yamaha like a beast. But he does talk a load of sh*t sometimes ha ha. It's funny but a little deluded if he honestly thought he'd have passed Pedro, caught him maybe but not passed.

What are you talking about? He was faster and he was catching him, he just ran out of laps. One more lap and he would have caught him and you can't stop someone from passing at Mugello, especially if he is half a second faster.

Of course Crutchlow would certainly have caught AND passed Pedrosa with another couple of laps. Over the last 5 laps he was lapping .5 - .8s a lap faster. As Dani himself admits, his front tyre was shot by that stage and he wouldn't have been able to hold on. From lap 19 onwards, all of Pedrosa's laps were in the 1.49's while Crutchlow's were all in the 1.48's, and over those laps he reduced a gap of over 4 seconds to under 1. #35 was also lapping marginally faster than Marquez just prior to his crash.

Claiming that Crutchlow would never have passed Pedrosa simply flies in the face of all available race data, and contradicts what everybody could see happening on track.
