CRUTCHLOW WORKING HARD TO FIND ANSWERS IN AUSTRIA
The MotoGP class reassembled at the Red Bull Ring on Friday for the opening sessions of free practice ahead of this weekend’s Styrian Grand Prix. It proved a tough day for LCR Honda CASTROL rider Cal Crutchlow who had to settle for 18th position in the combined times as he again worked hard to fine-tune the set-up of his 2020 RC213V machine.
Looking to better his 15th place finish in last Sunday’s race at the same venue, Crutchlow was 18th fastest in FP1 – although less than half a second outside the top 10. He improved to finish 13th in a sun-drenched FP2 session, but acknowledged afterwards he has work to do ahead of qualifying if he is to secure a good position on the grid.
