Crutchlow: “It’s always tricky here with the tyre situation"

Crutchlow: “It’s always tricky here with the tyre situation'

Cal Crutchlow posts the fourth quickest time during Friday’s free practice sessions ahead of the French Grand Prix.

With the track having dried out following a damp morning, Crutchlow went over a half a second quicker in the afternoon and ended up 0.473 seconds behind compatriot Bradley Smith who topped the timesheets.

Crutchlow: "Today was not a bad day. I was getting familiarised with the circuit as it’s not one of my better circuits. I quite enjoy the circuit, but I’ve just not particularly ridden too well here. We have to look to improve, we’ll go through the data tonight with the CWM LCR Honda guys and work out a plan to do better in tomorrow’s morning and afternoon sessions.

“It’s always tricky here with the tyre situation as we use a used rear tyre in the second free practice and I think we’re on a different plan to the other guys. But it worked quite well as we had race distance on the tyres and I’m quite happy.”
