Crutchlow: “I was like the Alonso of MotoGP"

Crutchlow: “I was like the Alonso of MotoGP'

It hasn’t been an easy three years for Cal Crutchlow as changes in manufacturer always seemed to happen at the worst time.

Three different teams in three years have seen Cal Crutchlow struggle to return to the podium regularly but 2016 offers renewed consistency as he and the LCR Team remain together. It was at the Argentina GP in 2015 that Crutchlow last took to the podium after a thrilling last corner move on Andrea Iannone (Ducati Team).

The British rider recently talked to motogp.com about the various moves he has made in the last few years: “Over the years I seem to grow with the manufacturer. But in the moment it’s a difficult situation because I was like the Fernando Alonso of MotoGP, I moved at the wrong time to every manufacturer. When I left everything started to go good! I don’t regret any decisions I made, I made them for the correct reasons at the time. Sometimes you look back and think ‘ah maybe this weekend would have been easier if I was riding something else’, but I have what I have and I have to do the best job I can with it. It’s nice to be in LCR for the second year, they’re working really closely with Honda and they’re working hard to do the best job they can.”
