Cal Crutchlow finishes seventh fastest at Spielberg FP2

Red Bull Ring Austria GP Day One
Friday, August 11th 2017

            



LCR Honda rider Cal Crutchlow proved competitive on the opening day of the Austrian Grand Prix in Spielberg as he posted the seventh fastest time in Friday’s afternoon free practice session.



At a circuit where the horsepower of the Ducati bikes had been predicted to dominate, Crutchlow showed encouraging form on his RC213V as wet conditions made things tricky once again for the MotoGP class riders.



Both sessions took place on a drying circuit after bouts of rain, but Crutchlow performed solidly and finished tenth in the morning session. He would improve further in the afternoon, ending fractionally behind Honda factory rider Marc Marquez who had to settle for sixth.



The LCR man feels there remains plenty of room for improvement ahead of Saturday’s qualifying and is hoping some overnight work from his team will provide him with improved acceleration.      
           


 Cal Crutchlow – 7th
(1’24.668 – lap 14 of 16)


"In the first session there was a few damp patches, in the second session there were even more damp patches! It was quite a difficult day to manage that situation and work out which tyre to use and when, the medium rear tyre had better grip than the soft rear tyre which was strange.



 Overall I think we had quite a good day, but we’re losing about three-tenths in the first section at the moment so we have to try and improve something somewhere.



“I feel really good in the corners, but on the acceleration I don’t know why we’re losing so much. It’s clear that we need to improve in this area. We’ll need to look at it tonight and then try to go as fast as possible tomorrow morning.”
