seems to be a little over doing the situation...! and I am big CC fan :)
Regardless, Cal is a good personality in the paddock, like him or not, he is a nice change from the over politicised and sterile mob who have been in the series since they were very young and so have been tutored and tailored to the point where it is sometime difficult to tell them apart.
That's one of the reasons VR has such a following (relax guys, just one of the reasons!)
Cal isn't always funny, he isn't always clever, he isn't always happy and smiling falsely... so, he is like the rest of us and I think people, from a few countries now, not just these shores have started to identify with him a little more and have warmed to him, as I have.
He is good for MotoGP, Dorna, Monster and Yamaha and deserves a decent bike and pay packet.
I was kind of wishfully hoping he would get Bradl's bike and Bradl get a customer bike... but hey ho, another year with Tech3 would be great too... but hopefully not heading towards the Ducati back door to oblivion :((
