MotoGP Czech Republic: Rossi: I'm very happy for Cal

'I think he has arrived in a special moment because he become a dad so great congratulations to him and to all his family' - Valentino Rossi.
Nine-time world champion Valentino Rossi has warmly congratulated Cal Crutchlow on his maiden MotoGP victory at Brno in the Czech Republic.

Crutchlow made a little piece of history as he became the first British rider to win a premier class Grand Prix race since the great Barry Sheene claimed his last 500cc victory at the Swedish Grand Prix 35 years ago in 1981.

Rossi, who finished as the runner-up behind Crutchlow in the Czech Republic, said he has a 'good relationship' with Crutchlow, who he describes as the funniest guy in MotoGP.

“I said to Cal great congratulations at the circuit because I am very happy for him because he is one of the funniest guys of MotoGP and we have a good relationship,” Rossi said.

“I think he has arrived in a special moment because he become a dad so great congratulations to him and to all his family.”


Repsol Honda's Marc Marquez, who claimed the final place on the rostrum in third, also spoke highly of the British rider in the post-race press conference.

“I agree with Valentino and I spend some afternoons with Cal speaking about the bike and I am happy with him, with Lucy and also his family. He is a funny guy.”

---OFF TOPIC--- I'm looking forward to hearing from Iannone about his tire situation and, even more, from Lorenzo. His wet performance this year is embarrassing, today he also made some huge blunder on top of being slow, but the worst thing was seeing him swap bike at a tortoise pace as the mechanics hurried him, which is incredibly disrespectful towards his team and Yamaha.
