Crutchlow wryly commented on the Aragon Grand Prix, which marked his return to MotoGp

Cal Cruthlow commented between the serious and the facetious on the chaotic first lap of the Aragon Grand Prix, which marked his return to MotoGp. The British rider, who took over from Andrea Dovizioso in the satellite Yamaha RNF team, confessed that he initially “lost all track of the race. Honestly, halfway through the first lap I thought ‘why did I come back here?”

“There were people flying all over the place,” Crutchlow continued, commenting on the crashes of Quartararo and Nakagami triggered by Marquez, “I was going on the brakes to avoid the visors, then I thought surely there would be a red flag. Then we went back to that point and said ‘Okay, let’s continue.’ I wasn’t ready for that, but it was a good race. I did my best, that’s all the team and Yamaha could ask for. We got some good information and some data again.” The Yamaha rider finished in 14th place and was in the points.
