Will Cal Crutchlow get a win in 2013?

Cal Crutchlow was the first British rider to step on to a MotoGP podium in 12 years when he finished third at Brno in 2012. Can he move up to the top step in 2013? pollcomment

I agree with you up to a point, Stoner was never given top bikes in the lower classes but  proved his true talent when given a competitive ride in GP. but spanish riders being given the best of everything from a young age undoubtably gives them a massive advatage. Where were all the great Spanish riders 30 years ago?

Park'y...

"thank God we don`t have to rely on the 'two bob brits' to help fund GP racing.."

Ask the average Brit & they'll just about know who Rossi is (though probably get the wrong type of racing)... why would a sponsor waste money on that?... on the other hand it's massive in Spain... simple.

I know you do not win multiple world championships year after year by luck contrary to what some on here believe.
BUT if any rider does have a bit of luck on a race day it is still just about possible to win a single Motogp race (Bayliss and Elias spring to mind).
Cal is a decent rider on a great bike run by a fantastic team, so he should have more chance than most….and with a bit of luck thrown in too.

10% chance of winning

Crutchlow's a good rider, very good in qualifying, would like to see him being a little more aggresive in the races but I guess the fastest guys aren't the most aggresive anymore as they used to be. Of course anything is possible in racing, but I think the only chance he will have to come close to a victory in a dry race without Lorenzo, Pedrosa and possibly Marquez and Rossi will be at Silverstone, giving his pace in the past two years there. I'll be there again so fingers crossed for a British win! I still prefer MotoGP over Superbikes (World and British).

Mr Krabs

actually 30 years ago in Spain,they were a new emerging democracy.Prior to that there was a Cretin called General Franco who did his best to keep Spain in the dark ages(dictatorship) for over 40 years..hence motor-cycle racing was held back for decades.In those days there was only two permanent bona-fide race tracks:Calafat and Jarama,the rest of the Spanish Championship was raced on roads..in fact I remember watching Angel Nieto,Ricardo Tormo,and the great Victor Palomo race on a street circuit in Cullera(Valencia) in National Championship race,,actually Rossis old man also competed on a Morbidelli 350.!..The investment in circuits and top class facilities in the last couple of decades has been phenomenal,and helped to push bike racing to become the second favorite sport in Spain.Great Spanish riders 20 /30 years ago?..Garriga,Cardus,Pons,Puig,Criville..there's a few for you
