Crutchlow: “We had a tough day”

Crutchlow: “We had a tough day”

Cal Crutchlow admits that he struggled during Qualifying but is hoping to make a breakthrough in Warm Up.

LCR Honda rider Cal Crutchlow produced a battling display to qualify in 11th position for Sunday’s San Marino Grand Prix at Misano. The Briton endured a difficult day, but showed real guts to advance to Q2 after finishing second fastest in the Q1 session earlier on Saturday.

Crutchlow conceded afterwards that he had struggled with the set-up of his Honda throughout the day. However, he remained upbeat ahead of Sunday’s race and insists the LCR team will work hard overnight and tomorrow morning to ensure they are competitive at the tricky Rimini circuit.

Cal Crutchlow: “We had a tough day for sure. We tried different set-ups on two bikes and it didn’t make much difference, we’re struggling a bit for tomorrow’s race. I think you can see from me and Scott (Redding) how much we’re struggling compared to the factory guys, but there’s no apparent reason for it, we need to look at the data tonight and work hard, then hopefully we can have a good race.

The goal is always to win, but the reality is a long way from that at the moment, but we have to keep our spirits high and keep the team motivated. We try our best every weekend, sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn’t, but we have some ideas for tomorrow morning as I think we went the wrong way today.”
