@ pcxmac

"Cal's biggest worry is being made look like a fool by Dovi next year"

But nobody else will care! If he is not in the top 6 or so, nobody will care who out of Cal or Dovi does better. Same as (be honest) nobody really cares who is doing better out of Dovi or Nicky.

For Ducati's sake I hope their performance clause is contingent on Cal beating Dovi, cause I am afraid hes just using Ducati as a stop over till Rossi retires.

... @ Chaser, I can tell you who is going to win next year, who cares who else is racing? I can tell you there are only three people who have half a shot, and one of them has the best tires on the grid this year.

Who cares about MotoGP at all?

Dani getting 3rd in the championship will be an accomplishment this year, Jorge+Marc are on the menu for the next some 1+ years. Yamaha vs Honda, Marquez vs Jorge, all Marc has to do to maintain expectations this year is beat Dani, and the tires are doing a fine job of that for him, and if Jorge can have his emotional comeback it will make for an intriguing interlude before next year begins and the vicious cycle begins again, where Dorna harvests even more stupidity.

No don't do it!!! You're no Casey!

Joke aside, it gonna be funny to watch him and his team mate again, no matter in what position it will be separate battle. Guereschi will probably loose his hair which is not a shame anyway...
Cal is more mature now so I can'y tell who will have upper hand...

You really do see this as WWF wrestling don't you? You need a reality check girl!

The real question is what will Crutchlow do after 2015? When he's established he can't win on the Duc. Back to Satellite? CRT? WSBK?

Hope the money was worth the end of his GP career (after his Ducati contract expires).

@Chaser, WWF appeals to a higher intellect buddy :) At least the script writers in WWF add variety and some creativity to their scripts.

MotoGP is about as predictable is a movie made for mental midgets who are completely ignorant of foreshadowing.

If you want to understand the political motivations in MotoGP all you need do is listen to the commentators and how they try to manage expectations, as thats what they are paid to do. Not only are they there to soften the blow when something unexpected happens (because why would we want something like that) but they are there to set the scenes like any good narrator would.
