Tech 3 boss: Ducati talks distracted Cal Crutchlow

Uncertainty surrounding his future and the constant dithering by Ducati over a lucrative factory contract distracted Cal Crutchlow on and off the track in the last few MotoGP races.That’s the view of Crutchlow’s Tech 3 Yamaha boss Herve Poncharal, who believes deliberations over his 2013 plans impacted on his recent performances.The British rider crashed three times in Indianapolis earlier this...

Brno - No Distraction

    Ok,what ever,who cares.Point is Cal has had a great result in Brno last weekend.This must be a great morale boost for Cal & must surely motivate him to repeat these sort of results.This is what the sport needs,the guys on the sattelite bikes competing with the factory spec bikes.New faces on the podium every race with several riders battling it out up the front just like Moto 2.

    We need to see Dovi,Cal,Ben,Alvero & Stefan all runing close to the front with a chance of a podium finish.As a spectator this is what I want to see not a presestion.Yes it was a good race last week but apart from Dani & Jorge on the last lap there was very little action.The last lap was amazing but its all I really remember about the race.

Herve's getting a little carried away with himself attributing Cal's superb podium to his signing a new deal with Tech 3. Coincidental, nothing else, even Cal says that. Antway, let's hope it's the first of many and he gets a race win soon! Ciao

Of course it did

Cal is not used to the games of motogp "promises" and the politics that go with it,it was getting to him for sure ,However this may not be what he hoped for but it is most likely the best course ,More stability more experience more podiums ,Two year contracts may be signed but lots can change in this sport ,Much more Benny baiting to come, lovely boy isn't it see !

Beating your team-mate is getting a big monkey of ya back that's for sure. What do they say in racing? You can come second last as long as you beat your team-mate. Keep up the good work Cal.
