Crutchlow disappointed after DNF at Le Mans
My foot slipped and I grabbed the front brake explained the 29yearold
CWM LCR Honda’s Cal Crutchlow is ‘disappointed’ after a mistake saw him crash out of the French Grand Prix.
The CWM LCR Honda Team appeared to struggle with matching the form shown in free practice and qualifying due to a dramatic change in conditions on race day.
The Isle of Man resident crashed out of at the Le Mans circuit after his foot slipped off the peg and then grabbing the front brake.
"Obviously I'm very disappointed with today. It seems all the Hondas struggled for front grip today but this wasn't actually the reason for the crash," explained Crutchlow.
"My foot slipped off the rear brake pedal and as that happened I grabbed the front brake, which caused a big spike in the front braking and caused me to crash.
"I'm really sorry to the team for that because I felt that in the latter part of the race we were due to come stronger and fight in the group that was immediately in front of me.
"That was the limit of what we were capable of today. I was close to Marc [Marquez] when it happened but we were both a long way from the front guys because it seems they had a lot more front grip than us."
Concluding, the Brit said: "We need to regroup now and go to Mugello, where hopefully we can have a better race."
Crutchlow is currently sixth in the Championship standings after a DNF in France. Mugello is the next round in the MotoGP calendar and takes place at the end of May.
