Crutchlow: “It was my fastest lap around Silverstone”

Crutchlow: “It was my fastest lap around Silverstone”

Cal Crutchlow produced his fastest ever lap around Silverstone to secure eighth on the grid for his home GP.

The LCR Honda rider had struggled over the course of the first two days at his home circuit, but saved his best form for qualifying on Saturday.

The 29-year-old was right on the pace from the morning session and, after a minor problem interrupted his progress in FP4, was highly impressive during qualifying as he finished just over a second off the time of pole-sitter Marc Marquez.

Cal Crutchlow: “It was a good qualifying session, I’m happy enough with the lap time I produced. Here has never been my best circuit as we know and it was the fastest lap I’ve managed to do around Silverstone I six years of MotoGP. Obviously I’m pleased, the LCR Honda team worked very well and we’re looking to make some further improvements ahead of tomorrow’s race. Honestly we still need to improve everything a little bit. Electronically we can do a bit better and I feel we need to gain a bit of rear grip. We had a small problem in FP4 which wasted some time as I had to come back into the pits, but overall I’m happy. I’m really looking forward to doing a good job in front of my home crowd tomorrow.”
