Cal Crutchlow Tops Final Day Of Testing In Jerez

Monster Yamaha Tech 3 Team rider Cal Crutchlow went fastest on the final day of testing at the Jerez circuit in Spain. The 27 year old set a laptime of 1m39.511s in the closing minutes on a greasy but dry track in the afternoon, outpacing Valentino Rossi and Stefan Bradl in second and third respectively.

Ahead of MotoGP's season opener in Qatar in less than two weeks, Crutchlow's impressive performance in Jerez has given him a lot of confidence, with the Brit looking for a strong start to the 2013 campaign.

“It is obviously very satisfying to finish the test with the fastest time because it shows what a really good job I did and what a great job my Monster Yamaha Tech 3 Team did too," Crutchlow said. "It is a shame we didn't get the chance to get in a lot more dry laps, but I have been very fast and consistent and that gives me a lot of confidence for when we return to Jerez for the third race."

"This morning's rain meant the track wasn't in a great condition in the last two hours and I felt I could have definitely gone faster if there was more grip available. But it is the same for everybody and we came out on top, so that's positive. Each time I tried to improve my pace at the end I came across some traffic, so I've no doubt I could have gone faster."

"It has been a positive pre-season and I think I have shown I have made another big improvement for this year. This result gives me a lot of confidence going to Qatar but my goal will be to finish in the top six and get some early momentum like I did last season. It is going to be a very exciting season and now I can't wait to get to Qatar."
