Crutchlow: "My foot slipped & I grabbed the front brake"

Crutchlow: 'My foot slipped & I grabbed the front brake'

A dramatic change in conditions on race day at Le Mans proved to be to the detriment of Cal Crutchlow.

The CWM LCR Honda Team struggled to match the strong form he had shown throughout free practice and qualifying for the French Grand Prix.

Crutchlow: "Obviously I'm very disappointed with today. It seems all the Hondas struggled for front grip today but this wasn't actually the reason for the crash. My foot slipped off the rear brake pedal and as that happened I grabbed the front brake, which caused a big spike in the front braking and caused me to crash.

“I'm really sorry to the team for that because I felt that in the latter part of the race we were due to come stronger and fight in the group that was immediately in front of me.

“That was the limit of what we were capable of today. I was close to Marc [Marquez] when it happened but we were both a long way from the front guys because it seems they had a lot more front grip than us. We need to regroup now and go to Mugello, where hopefully we can have a better race.”
