A well deserved 4th place for Cal. Good to see common sense come through in this case. Other than the top 3 which are in a league of their own, Cal was without doubt the next fastest rider, without question. Anyone who genuinely thinks otherwise is simply a bitter fan of another rider. Yes he did have a few crashes, but lets not forget that he's only in his second year and had zero GP experience beforehand, unlike many others who usually have at least a few wild card rides under their belt. Cal had none of that, so to challenge for podiums on a satellite bike is remarkable. The few crahses he had towards the end were what slipped him down the championship. It wasnt the performances of the the guys who beat him in the standings that got better, it was his own crashes that slipped him down the order. I personally have Dovi and Cal at about the same level, i think i gavce them both a 7 or 8. Yes Dovi had a few more podiums which he deserves credit for, and beat him in the standing
