Crutchlow: “We need to improve in sector one”

Crutchlow: “We need to improve in sector one”

Cal Crutchlow identifies where he needs to improve for Sunday’s race as he qualifies in tenth at Aragon.

LCR Honda rider Crutchlow qualified in eighth position for Sunday’s Grand Prix of Aragon at the Motorland Aragon circuit. The Briton produced considerable improvement throughout Saturday to eventually secure a spot on the third row of the grid.

Crutchlow was sixth quickest during Saturday’s morning session and then maintained a high level during qualifying. However, he admitted he was not totally satisfied with his performance and feels there is still plenty of progress to be made ahead of the race as he bids to try and match the podium finish he secured in Aragon 12 months ago. The British rider was a 1.074s off the pace of pole man Marc Marquez.

Cal Crutchlow: “I’m pleased with how it went, although I think we should have been a couple of places higher on the grid, these guys with the soft tyre are able to do a better lap time and gain an advantage. To be honest I didn’t put it together particularly well today, we did ok and now we’ll just have to improve tomorrow’s race – but I’m excited and looking forward to it. We need to improve in sector one, I thought our consistency was good but we just need a little bit more pace. Overall on the lap we were quite good, but we were not quite fast enough there and hopefully that won’t be the story after tomorrow’s race.”
