thank goodness he's ok ......

but at turn 4?  that's a 180 degree curve, certainly not a fourth gear corner.  wouldn't that be turn 9?  (i.e. Heikki Kovalainen's favourite corner in a McLaren ....)

That is turn 3 I think your referring to. Turn 4 is the following corner that leads onto the slightly downhill section under a bridge I think.

It could have had a much more serious result.

I think this might actually be KARMA.

After all the fuss about who pays for the brake upgraid, he gets the brakes and totally destroys the bike.

If the team try and charge him for the replacement/fixing the bike he won't have much salary left at the end of the year.

GOOD RIDER

Crutlow is the best British MOTOGP prospect for years and all you guys can do is slag him of. If he could improve his starts he would be on the podium for sure. I think that MOTOGP should be looking at more WSB riders to bring to MOTOGP Rea and davies spring to mind
