@ see ya. Lets not forget that MotoGP still has 4 Japanese factory bikes with much , MUCH greater resources and data than anyone else. Even if we disregard the Ducatis' as well as the other satellite bikes to race against, that suggests that 5th is the best Cal ought to be able to get (on paper) in the dry. Yes you can say cal's bike is very good - but he doesn't have full factory support and resources to use. This means that to get 4th or better needs a problem or DNF for those with better resources, or for those woth better resources to not perform anything like as well as CC for Cal to get on the box. This happened yesterday and he took his chance. Due to the way things are, it'll take something similar to happen again for Cal to have the chance to podium again - even if he's riding slightly better than VR, JL, DP & MM at the time. Trying to say if he doesn't podium consistently CC would be failing is simplistic nonsense. You have to have perspective and judge how he's doing
