Cal Crutchlow (LCR Honda) had a solid first day in Texas at the Circuit of the Americas, taking seventh on combined times and a presence in the top echelons throughout the majority of practice despite a crash in FP1. The track is one Crutchlow likes and he's looking to move up the timesheets on Saturday on a circuit that is normally a good one for the Honda – with a few things to improve and some things to try out.
Cal Crutchlow, P7: “Today we found quite a good setting in the second free practice. Unfortunately, I didn’t feel great during the first free practice on the bike or the tyres, but this afternoon it seemed a bit better with the harder front tyre and the harder rear tyre. We still have a few small things that we want to try on the bike, areas where I want to improve and I think we can. But the team did a good job and hopefully we can improve even more tomorrow.”
