MotoGP » Cal Crutchlow stays at Ducati


YEEEEESS!!!!! TOP NEWS!!! @ Ducatisti0 Yes, I am sure that is EXACTLY what he was thinking the WHOLE TIME!!! Why, pray tell are you so against him? Because he calls the Ducati a Piece of Cr@p (Which it is). Anyone can see this guy is fast. I can't WAIT to see what Gigi can do to that slow, understeering piece of turd... If they sort the bike, next year we will see a very different story from Ducati. GO CAL! GO DOVI! GO CRAZY JOE!

MotoGP » Cal Crutchlow stays at Ducati


Ducatisti0: Nick636: He is not fast because he refuses to adapt his riding style to the bike as he publicly said.
Why adapt a style to a bike that doesn't work?! Dovi and Iannone have adapted their styles and, OMG, got a fifth, a podium in the wet, and some top sixes... WOW!!!! CHECK THOSE PERCS!!! Cal has also had 2 brake failures and 2 mechanical failures this year, missed a round due to injury and ridden injured. They KNEW the bike would not get sorted this year. People had the same criticism of Cal in his first T3 season, then look, he came good, REAL good.

MotoGP » Cal Crutchlow stays at Ducati


What you all seem to be forgetting is that the Ducati has not had an all new bike in years. Casey was special, he could get results on it. But, even Rossi didn't get this one sorted as he claimed he would. Gigi was brought in to sort this bike/team out, and I think he has approached this situation very wisely. Spend the first year seeing first hand what the problems are, THEN make major design changes. The more compact engine I think is a good start. I have taken back a lot of criticism about Rossi, but the way they approached the Ducati when he was there was just stupid...

MotoGP » Redding 3.5s from Bautista


@ knownothing YET, here we are, talking about circuit racing.... I will never deny the sheer GIGANTIC skill and B@LLS that probably swing all day from John's inner seam, but this is circuit racing. MASSIVE DIFFERENCE. As for Nicky being the stronger rider.... BWAAAAHAHAHA!!!!! Seriously? The guy has what, 10years more experience? OMG that cracked me up...

MotoGP » Stefan Bradl: Right tyres, 'wrong' bike


@ Braaahp I don't disagree with you. BUT, in a way I don't see Cal's attitude as completely wrong. Casey could ride around it's problem and get wins, (A) because he's brilliant, and (B) because I don't think the Yamaha and Honda had AS big a gap as it has now. Dovi and Crazy Joe ride around the issues now, to an extent, but it's good enough for a podium in iffy conditions, or a top five. Cal doesn't see the point in risking injury for a top five or odd podium on a bike where they have been trying to put a bandaid on a broken back for the last couple of years. Gigi, I hope, will sort that.

MotoGP » Stefan Bradl: Right tyres, 'wrong' bike


@ Noriben "f he was really a great rider he should be performing far better than this." If you are comparing Cal to Dovi or Crazy Joe, you need to remember, they have had a whole year extra on the Duc. Also, Cal didn't have the best start to the season. Crashes, a whole lot of technical issues, not of his own making, then riding injured. It's hard to gain confidence like that. People like to slate Cal, but if you watch his performance last year at T3 there is no doubting he is talented, AT LEAST as good as Dovi (who I think is MASSIVELY underrated). IF Gigi comes up with a plan that works on the Duc, I have no doubt Cal will be up there with Dovi fighting for podiums and maybe even wins. Last point, comparing anyone to Casey (apart from the other aliens) is pointless. Casey, Marc, Jorge, Vale and MAYBE Dani are in a class of their own. I feel Iannone could be at that level too.
