Crutchlow: “I was not too happy”

Crutchlow: “I was not too happy”

Another disappointing result for Cal Crutchlow, ending the Gran Premio Movistar de Aragon in seventh.

Cal Crutchlow continued his run of five consecutive top ten finishes at the Aragon GP on Sunday, able to finish seventh. Despite the continuation of this positive record, Crutchlow was left wanting more as he struggled with a lack of rear grip and several other small problems. A slipping clutch at the start of the race caused the LCR Honda rider to lose four place immediately, a lack of acceleration making his fight through the field difficult.

Several big moments later, Crutchlow found himself battling the likes of Bradley Smith (Monster Yamaha Tech 3) and Andrea Dovizioso (Ducati Team) in one of the best battles of the Aragon GP. Crutchlow remains positive after the difficult race, happy to come away with points in the face of so many hardships. Work to improve the RC213V continues as the end of 2015 draws near. Crutchlow and LCR will continue their partnership for 2016.

Cal Crutchlow: “I was not too happy with my final position of seventh, but again this was the best we could do with our package. I was riding quite well, but I had no grip with the rear of the bike. We had some other small problems, I had a slipping clutch on the start-line and lost four places immediately and we struggled with the acceleration of the bike.”

“Overall I am pleased to finish because I had some big moments out there where I could have gone even though I was not riding too hard. I think it was a positive weekend, we finished seventh and I have some more knowledge of riding the Honda. We need to improve, but I think today’s race can help to highlight a lot of things.”
