Sepang MotoGP: Cal Crutchlow loses more ground in hunt for fifth

Fifth place in the overall MotoGP world championship standings slipped further out of Cal Crutchlow’s reach yesterday after he tumbled out of a rain-soaked Sepang race in Malaysia while battling inside the top six. A fourth DNF in the last six races has seen Crutchlow fall 19-points behind Alvaro Bautista in fifth place in the rankings. The British rider was looking to...

Unlucky ...

... Cal. 

For the first time in my life, I felt sorry for Cal (and myself) - because this time I couldn't blame him.

Come again Cal.....

"I was confident for the race in the dry because we made a big step, even if the lap time didn't show it." - So not really a big step then??

Gutted he crashed out but getting a bit tired of seeing him in the gravel and sounding so miserable all the time!!  Sort it out Cal!!!

However ...

... after giving the matter much thought I have concluded that indeed, it must be very difficult to crash when travelling slowly in a straight line and when both bike and rider are bolt up-right - but of course, it was wet and Cal was braking heavily.

RdP's another well known 'crasher' and he crashed just behind Cal ... Lorenzo's superb save at the same spot, at higher speed, several laps later and in ever worsening conditions provided a stark contrast.

Cal is more Randy than Jorge.

You are where you are ...

... because you're a 'crasher' - you've crashed out in 50% of the last 6 races.

But still Cal cries:

'I don’t think I deserve to be in the position I am in the championship.' 

Okay then, let's examine Cal's latest, stupid claim. Let's look at the positives - the good time/s .... lets look at podium finishes this year:

In 4th place is Dovi with 6 podiums

In 5th place is Bautista with 2 podiums

In 6th place is Rossi with 2 podiums

In 7th place is Crutchlow with 1 podium

In 8th place is Bradl with 0 podiums

All that looks in order to me Cal because you're also a distant 7th in the championship - so what's your problem?

It never ceases to depress me when we get a brit with potential all you morons do is slag him off in what ever class he races. I live over the pond now and any racer here is cheered on no matter where he finishes and treated like a hero, Colin Edwards gets loads of coverage and look where he is. If he was a Brit,you tossers would have him in the Tower!!! Our guys cant give their best if they dont feel supported. Could you do any better????

The difference is ...

... many British are honest and don't delude themselves like Americans. They can be very harsh critics - not apologetic morons, because they want real, British success.

Happily, British riders have a very bright MotoGP future -  but what about the 'Young Americans'?

... yeah, great subjective comments about Crutchlow.

You probably wet yourself when Cal crashed in the rain - I'm right again aren't I?
