Karel. I think he was being dubbed as the "Rich Boy" before the season got started, and has really put his head down and is working hard to prove that he belongs in the GP paddock. He qualified as the best Ducati on the grid earlier this year and routinely finishes ahead of last year's Moto2 champion Toni Elias.
Crutchlow, who did an admirable job in WSBK, I think put WAY too much pressure on himself by stating that he felt he could follow or hoped to follow in the footsteps of Spies in the preseason. He acknowledged that Spies's results from last year were phenomenal and outside the norm, but stating to the press that he intended to be best rider from Britain that we've seen in years? A little too bit of talking out of both ends, stating that you intend to be humble, then making comments like that. It's one thing to think it and another to boast it.
