Cal finds form and qualifies fourth for #FrenchGP at Le Mans
After an injury-ravaged season for Cal Crutchlow, qualifying for the French GP saw the British rider back to his best as he just missed out on a front row start for Sunday’s MotoGP race. The LCR Honda CASTROL man is still in recovery-mode from arm surgery, but put the pain to the back of his mind as he pushed his RC213V to fourth on the grid at the head of the second row
Starting from his best grid slot of his season so far, the British rider has high hopes of a season-best result in Sunday’s race. Cal has been fast in all conditions this weekend in France, and with dry weather forecast for the Grand Prix is hoping to back qualifying up with a season’s best race finish.
Cal Crutchlow – 4th
“It was a much better day today. It’s nice to be able to put in some good laps of the track this weekend, and I have to give credit to the LCR Honda CASTROL Team because they have worked very hard, as always. Before the qualifying session it seemed we had a slight problem with both of our bikes, but thanks to their hard work they were both ready for the qualifying session. In the end, we have shown good pace over the last two days so far, in all conditions, and now we can really look forward to the race tomorrow.”
