Crutchlow: “I think we’re set up well for the race”

Crutchlow: “I think we’re set up well for the race”

Cal Crutchlow is feeling confident ahead of the Sunday’s race despite crashing out of Qualifying and having to start from ninth on the grid.

He was particularly upbeat about his chances of picking up positions in Sunday’s race, believing that ninth place on the grid doesn’t accurately reflect his true position in the field. This was proven when he had crossed the first three sectors in record time during the 15-minute qualifying session. He then unfortunately lost the front at the tight turn ten, but thankfully emerged unscathed and still positive about the race ahead.

Cal Crutchlow: “I think we’re set up well for the race, and I’m actually pleased with how the day went. We may be ninth on the grid but I think it’s clear for everybody to see that the Honda riders are struggling in these conditions more than in other years. The factory I know are working really hard for us back in Japan to make things better. I know I made a mistake at the end, but I had warned my team that I was going to push as hard as I could to get onto the front row for the first time this year! I pushed, and sadly that was the end result. Overall I’m happy with my speed and my race pace, rather than my overall fastest lap. Ninth isn’t where we are in reality.”
