Cal Crutchlow: MotoGP better with competitive Valentino Rossi

Monster Yamaha Tech 3 rider Cal Crutchlow believes the MotoGP world championship will be a greater spectacle for everybody with Valentino Rossi challenging for victories in 2013. The Italian quickly shrugged off a disastrous two-year spell with Ducati to set the third fastest time on an impressive return to Yamaha's factory squad in Malaysia last week. Rossi was only just over 0.4s...

Thanks for that MB..

haha..Nostro & Bulto have been busy.

Love to see 'em go back to the boingy old trellis and make a complete arse out of themselves..or the CF that Stoner spent half his time picking the gravel out of his pearly gnashers on.
 

The only thing they haven't changed is that big old dinosaur of an engine, but they'd rather quit than admit they got it wrong there.

Bye-bye.

Strange attitude

No idea why you seem delighted at this Wosi - if Ducati did decide to pull out of Motogp then how is that good for the series, another manufacturer leaving.

Unless of course you want to see all the competition slowly seep away from the track clearing a bigger path for your boy to get to the front...

Making omelettes..

..without breaking a few eggs is impossible.

If Ducati go and we're left with Honda and Yamaha, how do you feel about that?

Then Honda outspend Yamaha, and we have an HRC supported advert for their wares in all classes..

Great..fkin marvellous.

CRT was introduced to show the MSMA they're not the be and end all.

Ezpeleta had them on the run, then backed down. It's bullshit. Money talks.

I say..fk them off and let's get back to some proper racing. NOT bikes running on fresh air and 2000km motors.

An excess of power over grip with the rider having to manage shit, not the boffins.

Don't follow you at all on this, you been on the snakebites? You seem to be agreeing yet disagreeing.

You can't get rid of the manufacturers - it's manufacturers who provide the bikes, or at least the engines. CRT is nothing without a manufacturer to provide an engine.

You can't blame Honda or Yamaha, they are like any other person, team or body that competes, they want to win and the one with most money and / or best resources is usually the one that wins.

CRT was bullshit and was always going to be, it's done nothing  - it's put more bikes on the grid but achieved nothing as a result -  they may as well have put the top 10 Moto2 bikes out there instead as they are about as close in performance to the Motogp bikes.

Out of an entire grid there are still most likely only 4 bikes that will win. another four will scrap over the pieces and the rest are making up the numbers, unless Ducati strike back. Something needs to happen, they need to cap the spending, remove the aids, more emphasis on the rider's ability definitely. CRT isn't going to help in this in any way at all. Neither will getting rid of Honda and Yamaha. All that wouold happen is more manufacturers would take their place, and so the cycle repeats.

How many other manufacturers would enter if not dictated by these silly rules?

You lose Honda's influence and you'll have others step up..just like in WSB.

You are missing the point about CRT and leveraging. HRC threatened to leave GP and go WSB until Bridgepoint bought out Infront. 

Without CRT, would Honda be building a proddy RCV and Yamaha going to supply engines?

Why didn't they do it before a gun was held to their heads?
