I don't see that there's a valid comparison to be made with Crutchlow's first year in MotoGP. Cal had not been to most of the tracks before and was racing in the pre-CRT era. The 2013 M1 is also far more competitive and closer to factory spec than the 2011 version was. If one were to look for a benchmark, a better comparison would be with Stefan Bradl - a rider with similar experience and who was on a comparable level of machinery in his rookie year.
