CRUTCHLOW RATES THE OTHER BRITS
“Brad is Brad – he just rides around and gets a result. I don’t know whether he can be consistently on the podium, and I don’t hope he can be, because that would be me hoping someone else gets a result. I hope Danny Kent gets results, but not someone in Motogp! Brad deserves it though, because I know he works hard for it, and it was good to see him have a great season. I don’t think he rode fantastically, but he did a good solid job and picked up points.
“I think Scott has a big motivation because he had a bad season last year, simple as that. The problem is, the Ducati is fast and powerful, and that’s where he’s getting his speed from in testing for the odd quick lap. Whether he can transform that into racing will be entertaining to see.”
