2017 MotoGP™: Red Bull Grand Prix of The Americas

Free Practice

#35 Cal Crutchlow – 7th (2’05.005)

“Today we found quite a good setting in the second free practice. Unfortunately, I didn’t feel great during the first 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.”


#35 Cal Crutchlow – 9th (2’04.661) 

“I’m disappointed to be ninth on the grid for tomorrow when I thought the front row was possible, especially the lap I was on. But unfortunately we’ve been having a lot of vibration in the first-gear corners all weekend and I made a mistake and went down which was disappointing, because it would have been a good lap from the time I was setting. 
“But we have to start from scratch tomorrow and try to make a good job. My team has been working very hard and I feel confident for the race, definitely. We either have to go hard from the start and be aggressive or be patient and play the long race - at the moment we don’t really know from the tyre selection what we’ll do, but I’m hopeful of getting into a good position.” 


#35 Cal Crutchlow – 4th (44’06.408) 

“It was a good race, I felt confident throughout and my team did a fantastic job all weekend. Of course, I’m a little disappointed not to get the podium because we were very close, but I took too long to pass Johann Zarco and after that I lost a little bit of time running off the track. 
“But I felt comfortable during the race and physically strong, and I was still able to push towards the end. I would have liked another podium, but a third in Argentina and fourth here in Texas is good from the last two flyaway races. Hopefully we can carry this momentum into the first European round in Jerez.”
