Mugello MotoGP: Late crash costs Cal Crutchlow pole bid

British rider Cal Crutchlow was left to rue a late crash in qualifying at a scorching hot Mugello this afternoon that he believes denied him the chance to score his first ever MotoGP pole position. Crutchlow had just gone out on the one remaining soft front Bridgestone tyre he had left when he crashed at Turn 12 with 12 minutes remaining. The...

erm.. yes & no.

Tets is correct. Nothing has been mentioned (not even by MCN that I could find) of the decision to obstruct media view of those 3 rears (in fact, I had forgotten about it because no-one was talking about it). Agreed, It's odd that Casey isn't blaming the tyres (I guess because he's blaming everything else) and yep, watch him fly today. I don't agree that a wider range of tyres from the same manufacturer makes the rule semi redundant. It's the same manufacturer. Michelin compounds are completely different (and a certain 26 decided to bin them off halfway through a season). So to me, it's just a wider range. The real question is why they really dropped the rule. Wonder how many free lunch vouchers the boss of Bridgestone sent to Dorna? (Prolly a lot but not as much as Honda have)

Why don't you two bore off....

Go on Jeremy Kyle instead of on here. There is enough rubbish written on here without you two multiplying it by ten fold. Stick to PM or meet up for a fisty cuffs session then tomorrow you can both get up for school nice and early.

Two mistakes is fail time

 

Fark.  I'd worked out that Casey was trying the extra-hard in QP, hence his pace being so off at the start.  He looked like he tried both the hard and extra-hard in the warmup this morning (with some success), as did Pedrosa (with less success).  Couldn't believe that he went with the hardest option in the race, though.  That's the second time he's made that mistake this year.

His second mistake was pushing too hard to catch Nicky.  Shit happens.

Have to say that his move on Bautista was too hard - too dangerous.  I hope he apologises.

Bautista took that well

In the replay did you see Bautista look to his left in disbelief (WTF mate?!)   You can only imagine the outburst from Stoner had anyone stuffed it up like that to him.  Smacks of Desperation.  And as you say, extra hard rear was a repeat mistake.  The seemingly infallible Stoner looking well fallible. Oh dear.  Anyway, more imoprtantly well done Lorenzo, Pedrosa and Dovi.  Bradl was a class act and well, not sure what happened to our boy today, but 6th was decent enough considering..... Bring on Laguna.
