You've finally seen the light.

I know he'll never properly rival Marquez, but cut the lad some slack... he's the best we've had for a few decades.

Fair play, he did very well on Sunday and got a cracking 3rd without any disasters by the other top contenders, could have been 1st after the expected Marcos last gasp kamikazi lunge which Dovi managed to avoid.  I really hope he gets this kid of performance on a regular basis as he was starting to earn his nickname "Cal Crashloads", probably because he just tries so hard. It was an absolutely brilliant opening race for the Motogp season, lets hope all of the races are as entertaining, makes F1 look like a boring waste of time (easy done).

The COTA surface is so potholed now (still OK for 4 wheels  :notsure: ), I'm surprised MotoGP still uses it to race on.

To finish first, first you have to finish.

I like the guy, support him and want him to do well but he is a bit like Crash Mcrae, superb talent but just keeps crashing. He can blame everything and anything but none of the other bikes are perfect either. There are times i am sure  that he just doesn't abck off  and crashes and if he did he would stay on. He virtually said it himself this weekend talking about his crash, if you back of you loose a second.
He is one fast fecker that is for sure, Marquez fast hmm not sure in a head to head but close and a nice guy by all accounts, just keep the rubber on the bloody road. The way this championship is going, simply picking up 3rd and 4ths each round may be enough to win it.
