Cal Crutchlow (LCR Honda) had good pace throughout the weekend at Jerez, and despite testing during the practice sessions took a front row start. A crash out of contention in the race put paid to a podium charge, but it was back to work on Monday for the post race test – where the two-time GP winner put in another 70 laps.
A best of a 1:39.319 on lap 19 of 70 saw Crutchlow end the day in seventh, and the LCR rider was happy with how things went – focusing on shorter runs and re-confirmation of data gathered over the race weekend.
Cal Crutchlow, P7: “Today was a long day, we tested all through lunchtime and we had many things that we wanted to try on small runs. We were not testing any new parts, just what we were running over the weekend to see if could improve and overall it was quite positive. Our pace was good, the lap times were consistently fast – in the low 40s – which was good and it was hotter. We’re pleased with the way the team worked. Our electronic engineer had some late nights here and he had a busy day again, but we’re happy with what we’ve done and we can now focus on getting a positive result in Le Mans.”
