Felt bad for Crutchlow. He probably could have used a few more hp (or some clear track) to outpace the Hondas...who could park their buts in front of him in the corners and squirt away on the straightaways. Cal may have been a bit conservative in charging them but of course things can go wrong very quickly! It seems clear the only way to do it on the Yamaha is to stuff them into the corners Rossi-style, taking away the Honda advantage and catering to the Yamahas...just opposite to what the Repsol boys were doing to Cal.
Easily said from the arm chair of course!
