Crutchlow: “I just missed out on the front row again”

Crutchlow: “I just missed out on the front row again”

CWM LCR Honda’s Cal Crutchlow qualified in fourth for the third time this season in Mugello.

The British rider will be the top Honda rider on the grid for the race, and will be ruing a tiny error on his fast lap, after he missed third by just under five-hundredths of a second.

Cal Crutchlow: “The feeling with the bike was good today, we did a lot of laps on old used tyres and I was happy with the pace. It’s a strange situation here because it looks like the soft tyre is benefitting some riders quite a lot when it’s new, so lap times are a bit crazy, as are the positions of some riders. Overall I was happy, because I tried a hard front tyre and I was happy with that, so much so I even qualified with it. I just missed out on the front row again, but I made a small mistake, which was my own fault. Actually, I expected the lap time to be even slower considering the mistake I made, so that’s positive. We just need to get away with the front guys tomorrow, and then we can look forward to a good race because the CWM LCR Honda Team have had a good weekend, and we’re working well with our package.”
