Well at least he admitted it was his mistake.He had a great qualifying too.Gutted for him.But,he is still 4th in the championship and there is a long way to go yet.Keep your chin up Cal,you are doing very well indeed this season.

Was a pity this crash.. Cal can cause a lot of problems to Rossi, we have to admired Cal because and aim trully beeing honest he never give me the confidence he could improve so much has a rider, i wach him since the Supersport in wsbk he did great was Champion and i was think to me this rider is very good, but then he jump on the R1 i think he was not that good i mean he was a great qualify rider and did some good races but he allways crash to much, then he arrive on Motogp without beeing World Champion on WSBk and i think to me this was Gift because he is British and have a lot of conections with Tech 3 Team and then on the 1 year he crash my God he really crash, on the 2 year he start to show more consistency and was a fast qualify rider and now he really loocks strong and able to make races with mcuh more confidence and thats very impressive from one prespective of Wsbk rider that enter on Motogp.. The only World Champion from Wsbk that win a Champion on Motogp i think was only Ni

The only World Champion from Wsbk that win a Champion on Motogp i think was only Nicky Hayden, one of the most impressive Wsbk riders was Ben spies and also Wsbk Champ but on Motogp he just didnt performe has good, But Cal is only supersport Champion and this guy Fight hard he really Whants to be here at Motogp and you know what, he is impressing me more then Hayden or Ben Spies.. We have to give Cal Credite because this is his 3 year on Motogp.. I wish he do a good year and find is place, he only need to keep is consistency and good results to find a place.. If he do well this year i will change my mind on him and i will point Cal has a trully competitive rider that learn what was needed but First lets finish the year

I was at turn 7 and you could easily see the chatter in the front end, the tire sometimes clearly coming off the pavement like a jackhammer. He was the only front-runner I saw having this problem...that's the result of mixing with the leaders on a 2nd rate bike. I really don't understand Yamaha not supporting him better! If there's a "Monster" rider out there it's CC! But he takes responsibility, I admire that, unlike a certain infamous Roman...and so many others with the "we crashed" statements. Cal says "I crashed, and I need to improve". That's quality. GO CAL!
