He made up a full second on Hayden on the last lap and then biffed it in the chicane. Bummer but he still has some impressive MotoGP podiums (even while injured), a couple of World Superbike championships, won one of the best races in World Superbike history, a hot wife, two kids and lots of money. I think he'll be OK.

He would probably complain about it and put in less effort than everyone else on a Ducati and watch Iannone pass him on a stunt bike he picked up at the local Kmart.

Crash.net is reporting another round of comments from Crutchlow here.

Another new stance. In his previous comments he was saying that the bike wasn't right and so he wasn't going to take any risks and he didn't care much that the other Ducati riders were quicker.

This time he says:

“We need to improve my riding on the bike, because at the moment I'm just completely frozen on the bike. I don't move on the bike. I don't do anything. I need to be able to relax and ride the motorcycle how a bike should be ridden, not just freeze every time because you don't know what the hell it is going to do.

"... We'll try and get me more comfortable on the bike before we start to worry about anything else.”

Last year here Crutchlow was third, having run into Marquez on the last lap while trying to overtake him for second.

Anyone else have problems with the FP live streaming? I tried to watch MotoGP FP1 last night and only got intermitent feeds with constant pauses.

My picks are:
Jorge,
Vale,
Dani.




Aleix and Alvaro take Mark out on lap 7 in a duel for the lead before their tyres go off....

Cal doesn't come out of his motorhome all day.

I didn't watch FP1 live, but watched all of FP2 without any tech issues.

Couldn't agree more, that kid can ride. He should have stayed in moto2 until he was offered a factory ride in gp

Because he's fast in practice with a soft tire? He's proven to be fast on friday and saturday (before QP) but other than that his race results aren't reflecting the early weekend speed he frequently displays. The only factory rider that he might be faster than is Crutchlow.
