Cal Crutchlow fastest on final day of 2013 MotoGP testing

Cal Crutchlow ended the 2013 MotoGP pre-season in the best way possible after the Monster Yamaha Tech 3 rider topped the timesheets on the final day of testing in Jerez. The British rider set a best time of 1.39.511 late on the final afternoon to lap marginally quicker than factory Yamaha rider Valentino Rossi’s best lap of 1.39.525 that the Italian...

Top 6?

In this week's MCN, Cal Crutchlow says that he believes a top 6 finish will be what he is fighting for in Qatar. Clearly he believes the factory bikes will beat him (he has complained about this enough!) and he believes the satellite Hondas are better than the satellite Yamahas. I think he is perhaps correct to manage expectations but to head to race believing that there are 5 or 6 people whom 'should' beat him, I suggest, is not the correct mindset. Perhaps this is merely more 'Cal against the world' self motivation but surely he must be as careful not to start believing he cannot beat certain rider/bike combinations as to not believe any hype from being fastest. I'm not necessarily saying he is wrong, I just hope he doesn't psyche himself out one way or another. He has shown himself vulnerable to that in the past.
