MotoGP Great Britain 2012: Cal "El Loco" Crutchlow's chance to become a fantastic

The British Grand Prix lands on Silverstone at a time when time is giving the English a break. However, the forecast says that by Sunday we will have up to 60% chance of rain, a percentage that will decrease as the day progresses. But this should be no problem not to enjoy another great motorcycling weekend.

This year there will be no injuries - in 2011 he fractured a clavicle -. No. Great Britain, old school fans, bikers who will endure rain, wind or cold to see you, Tech3 and his serial killer look eager to find a new victim refuse to let that satellite Yamaha not get on the podium., at least. If there is a place where Cal crutchlow you can go for the podium, that's Silverstone. The 5, 9km distance of the English route have been a lucky charm Since the days when he achieved the double in Superbikes, a double, according to some, the result of the divine gift of Valentino Rossi, who after riding a few laps on the Yamaha R1 at that time was able to put an end to the problems that he was dragging. Cal is having a very positive and regular season in which he has shown his best. The Briton continues an upward progression that may end up convincing the heads of the tuning forks. Although it was Andrea Dovizioso The one who got on the podium at Montmeló, Cal likes more, because with much less experience in the category - and sometimes worse material - he finds just four points from his partner of box.

Last year, in a race that finished 12 drivers, Casey Stoner gave a monologue to which Jorge Lorenzo He did not attend, as he went to the ground when he tried to reach the Australian. Well, after having made it very clear that neither he nor Yamaha intend to make the last title easy for Casey, the Mallorcan will arrive at this test like that student who goes to September: with a bad taste in his mouth from past experiences, but confident to be better prepared. Casey, by the way, better get on with it, because even though Lorenzo only scores ten points, it is the same difference that separates him from the other fantastic title contender, Dani pedrosa. Who, by the way, do I consider very suitable for this race, both in rainy and dry conditions, despite not being able to have collected too much information on the English track - due to injury, or not knowing it previously -. If it rains, let's not lose sight of Valentino, who is always ready to seize the slightest opportunity. So, here goes my bet:

  • 1 Casey Stoner
  • 2 Dani Pedrosa
  • 3 Cal Crutchlow

Moto2: the boys go back to school

After the fight in the backyard, the boys return to class where they must forget what happened and focus on doing their homework properly. If not, I know they will find that other students will be taking advantage of them that they may not recover in time. Needless to say, I mean Marc Márquez and Pol Espargaró, who will face each other again on a stage where Scott Redding and Bradley Smith they are consolidated with very good options. He was second in 2011 while Scott had to settle for dragging his elbows in fifth place. However, it was Marc who took pole and we know that when Cervera's is focused, there is no one to stop him, except the desire to win.

Although Andrea Iannone and Thomas Luthi can never be ruled out, I will be guided by the value of the home factor to make my own bet, although it is somewhat innocent, I know …

  • 1 Scott Redding
  • 2 Marc Marquez
  • 3 Bradley Smith

Moto3: Maverick goes for the lead

Only seven points separate Maverick Viñales of the championship leadership after his victory in Catalonia. That honor is for the moment Sandro CorteseThe German rider is at the perfect point between talent, youth and experience to fight with options for the trophy. Proof of this is that it has ended on the podium in six of the last eight races. Silverstone is also the place where Jonas folger got his only victory or where Luis Salom -has reaped- reaped his best result so far, fourth.

  • 1 Maverick Viñales
  • 2 Louis Rossi
  • 3 Sandro Cortese
