Crutchlow: “I've not been well for the last few days”

Crutchlow: “I've not been well for the last few days”

CWM LCR Honda’s Cal Crutchlow ended the day in seventh overall after admitting he had been suffering from the flu.

Riding this track for the first time on this bike and despite feeling less than 100%, the British rider was the fastest Honda on track as he lapped third fastest in this morning's opening session although he did not manage to improve his best time in the afternoon as track temperatures soared by 20ºC.

Cal Crutchlow:
“It has been a positive first day, we've been going through the motions here at Jerez. I've not been well for the last few days with flu so firstly we had to make sure I was okay to ride today. I felt not too bad on the bike and the CWM LCR Honda Team did a great job, they're all working well again. This is another new circuit for me on the Honda but we were able to get a feel for it here and run through some tyre options. We also worked on the engine brake control system, which is where we need to improve the most. We will look to continue with that tomorrow and hopefully have a better day.”
