Cals chances of ever winning on a Yamaha are long gone, if you make Yamaha boss angry he will make sure you will have a rough ride, at least they are not sabotaging the bike like they did with Spies , as for Rossi he tolerates him because of his massive sponsorship potential, notice that Rossi is always running low on power or running out of fuel.

He is already doing ok,,best of the rest in standings, we don't expect more but this cal is always annoying with what he says,, he thinks that he is a consistent race and championship winning material and want people to accept that... Before even putting results on paper he comes out to say why he didn't shatter pole record or why he didn't win a commanding race or so on or something of this kind... He never explains the potential of his rivals and the stiff competitions they give.
Even in twitter he is annoying, he badly wants people to accept that he is greater than what he is now and want people to accept that all he gets to race with are poor things and take pity on him.
Dovi last year had more or less similar results(with only 3 factory front runners) to cal now but he rarely complained about anything...

Crutchlow talks too much and never cease to contradict himself. One day Lorenzo is the greatest thing he ever witnessed, the next day Marquez is the greatest thing he ever witnessed. Color me confused...

But Cal's a damn fast rider, a world class talent.
I believe Ducati could make some improvement next year with him and Andrea. Ducati used to know how to make racing bikes, they won't remain the laughing stock of the paddock for ever, they're due to bounce back sooner or later. CC could make the factory jump at the right time.

Please, forget all the silly conspiracy theories - complete bolloxs.
The real point here, if Cal is correct, is that all the Yamahas will be starting on their last engine at Aragon. If that's so, it's highly unlikely they can make it to the end of the season without having to have an extra one and a pit lane start. That would really stuff Lorenzo and just make the job easier for MM.

I think that's it for Lorenzo's championship. Not only does he have to beat Marquez every race to the end, he'll also have to do that from pit lane at least once. It's Marquez's championship to lose.

Like any rider, Cal has his flaws. However, I do not think we should expect higher placings than what he has delivered. Cal believes he should be at the front and when he is not he becomes critical of self and others. I hope the Ducati works well for him or else it will be a long season.
