It is interesting to see the stats. And it is very clear that the 1000 really suits Cal. But shouldn't forget a big reason for his improvement is also an extra years experience, last year was his MotoGP debut and also his first time at Losail. As always some people are getting carried away trying to imply too much based on these stats. And remember, the point of switching to 1000cc and having new tyres wasn't to be faster, it was partly to reduce costs, to improve the spectacle of the racing and to improve safety.
