CWM-LCR Honda rider Cal Crutchlow did the progress on the second day in Sepang

CWM-LCR Honda rider Cal Crutchlow declared himself pleased with the progress he made on the second day of the February tests at the Sepang circuit in Malaysia.

Crutchlow managed a total of 62 laps on his factory spec Honda RC213V and posted a fastest time of 2’01.058 which left him eighth on the timesheets – under a second behind the factory Hondas of world champion Marc Marquez and Dani Pedrosa.

He completed a number of shorter runs and was able to improve his feeling on his new package as the day wore on.

However, the Briton admitted there remains plenty of room for improvement and revealed he would be working hard to improve corner entry on the third and final day of testing on Friday.

Cal Crutchlow #35 | (8th, 2’01.058, 62 laps)
“I’m pleased with today, we made a lot of progress with my feeling with the bike. Again, we didn’t take my benefit from the new tyre again particularly, we need to still improve in that area. We need to also improve the corner entry as there was a lot of sliding on the corner entry of the bike so this will be our focus for tomorrow on our last day of testing in Sepang.
The team’s been working great. We’ve been working hard, doing a lot of laps, but not so many in a row as we’ve been making quite a lot of changes. But tomorrow I look forward to doing a few longer runs and looking for the best settings to be able to come back for the second Sepang test (at the end of the month) and be comfortable.”
