Crutchlow: “The last race was a disappointment”

Crutchlow: “The last race was a disappointment”

CWM LCR Honda’s Cal Crutchlow is looking forward to finally racing at the Termas de Rio Hondo after missing last years GP through injury.

Cal Crutchlow missed out on the first-ever running of the Argentine GP in Termas through injury last year, but the British rider is familiar with the track after having completed a test there a year previously.

The 29 year-old arrives in Argentina off the back of two seventh-places in the opening rounds of the championship, but is determined to prove that he should be taking higher finishes - having shown in practice that he is one of the fastest riders out on track.

Cal Crutchlow:
“It’s great to finally be here for the Grand Prix in Argentina, we get such a fantastic welcome when we come and there are lots of fans here. Even though I watched this race from home last year, it was one of the great events of last season. I hope I can make some good free practice sessions because I need to get familiar with the track again. We’re at a slight disadvantage, when I tested here there was no grip and you could only do three or four laps with the tyre. It’s good that I know where it goes, but I think it will be a more difficult race for us here. I think so far it’s been a poor start to the season for us - seventh place doesn’t reflect where we should be. The last race was a disappointment because we had great practices and we were looking set to be in the podium battle. I had some problems though and a strange feeling with the bike, so we salvaged some points but that was all we could do. We need to come here, have none of those problems and challenge as much as possible.”
