LCR Honda CASTROL racer Cal Crutchlow (LCR Honda Team) was actually the fastest Honda at Sepang and his results impressed after 3-months stop.
Lucio Cecchinello (LCR Honda Team Principal): “I think Cal will once again be one of the most competitive riders in the championship. Despite the serious injury sustained in Australia last October, Cal never gave up, and after several months of intensive training and physiotherapy he was back in great form at the Sepang test. By completing over 150 laps, he showed in that first test just how determined he is to gather vital data for the Team and the HRC technicians as they develop the 2019 RC213V Factory Spec bike.
Cal Crutchlow: “We’ve had a good test here and got some useful information. I have no idea where we’ll end up on Sunday evening, but I’m really excited to be getting back on the bike this weekend. We’ve got a lot of modifications from the test (in Qatar) as we didn’t have the final package there, for sure. My expectation this weekend is to ride a solid race and start the season well and then look to carry that on throughout the year.”
