Has Cal been drinking his own Cool Aid?

Cummon Cal, please TRY to keep a grip on reality:

I'm assuming this must be more of that dry british humour he is famous for. Or he has finally stepped of the deep end.

Top level racers are generally quite similar in having two traits that are important for success: an inability to accept their 'fate', and extraordinarily self belief.

Cal is no different.

I am not as down on Cal as many on here, but there is imo a line which separates self belief from denial of reality.

Of all the riders out there, Dovi is a rider with whom Cal can be directly compared on the same equipment, on which basis he comes up short.

If Cal wants to argue he would be as good as Dovi if he didn't crash much more or was able to stick with a ride until it became consistently competitive in his hands then he might have a case, but until he does these things he hasn't done them.

No brotha you missed the even bigger story. Cal thinks Cal is a contender. The only thing more important than self confidence for an athlete is a grip on reality.

I'm guessing you've never heard of Alastair Seeley then?

Cal can be as fast as Dovi, but he is not as consistently fast... that said everyone on the grid is capable of having one fast lap, the difference is consistently having the fastest lap.
