Crutchlow: "I felt good and comfortable on the bike"

Crutchlow: 'I felt good and comfortable on the bike'

Cal Crutchlow set a blistering pace as he finished 3rd fastest at the Sepang 2 test.

Cal Crutchlow #35, 3rd (1’59.658, lap 6 of 58):

“For a track that I dislike, that’s my fastest ever lap around here by nearly eight-tenths of a second. I felt good and comfortable on the bike, and it’s not a bad lap considering the conditions of the circuit today.

“I’m happy enough with how things are, but I still need to improve my riding style. The corner speed isn’t too bad, but although straight line braking is good, the other riders can take more risks than me in the moments just after. That’s a confidence thing though, and as the exit from the corners isn’t too bad I still think there is more to come.

“In my earlier race simulation we didn’t have any braking power with the bike - exactly the same problem as Marc Marquez had earlier this week. As I have said we have been struggling with corner entry as it was, but I was still really riding well in my long run, it felt quite good but I was losing a second maybe on some laps just from being unable to stop with the brakes.”
