Crutchlow Im really rusty from the winter off

BRITON Cal Crutchlow was content after finishing day one of the first official MotoGP test at Sepang in 10th despite feeling a 'little rusty'.

The Sepang International Circuit in Malaysia saw the entire MotoGP field flock out of the pit-lane for the first time in 2015 to officially start the season. Crutchlow, with his new CWM LCR Honda squad, took to the track to continue to familiarise himself with his new factory-spec Honda RC213V after a winter off.

'Today was obviously a good familiarisation day from my point of view with CWM-LCR Honda Team," said Crutchlow. "We got back to working ways quite well.'

The 29-year-old completed 61-laps in total with a best time of 2:01.713s, placing him 10th overall. Crutchlow admitted there was still work to be done to improve the overall feel of the bike, especially when on new tyres.

He said: 'I was happy but really rusty from the winter off. We did a good job, we made a lot of laps on used tyres and the lap time was the same as what I did with the new tyres, so we need to keep improving with the new tyre and be able to feel a little bit more comfortable on the bike.

'In the last run we seemed to have some sort of problem to not be able to take advantage of the lap time, but I was happy overall and it was nice to get back on the bike in Malaysia today.'
