MotoGP » Crutchlow crash scuppers career best finish


@ The Bad Guy I agree with your comments re. the sat Hondas. Though I think for next year the satellite Hondas will be full factory spec and that Gresini will be running Ohlins kit again. That's going to make them far more formidable, and will mean that Yamaha will be the only prototype manufacturer not to field 4 factory spec bikes. The Tech 3 boys are going to be really up against it unless Yamaha steps up their support to match.

MotoGP » Crutchlow crash scuppers career best finish


@ petrolbonce Of course running out of fuel isn't the rider's fault. The team calculate the amount of fuel required based on race simulation pace in practice, fill the tank accordingly and advise the rider he has enough to run the race. In this case they underestimated Crutchlow's race pace and underfueled the bike by 300mls. It's only part of race craft if the rider knows he's going to run short. Otherwise you trust to the team's calculations and assume they got it right. In this case they didn't.
