Cal Crutchlow was once again left dis­ap­pointed de­spite fi­nally manag­ing to get points on the board af­ter fin­ish­ing his first race of the 2016 sea­son in 11th. Claim­ing af­ter­wards that a dud tyre from Miche­lin had left him fight­ing vi­bra­tions, he was left un­happy at go­ing back­wards in the 27-lap race.

“I didn’t come here to fin­ish 11th, and be­fore the race I felt I could have bat­tled with Pe­drosa but we had some­thing wrong with the rear tyre. That’s no ex­cuse, but at the end of the day we needed to fin­ish. Honda are work­ing hard to give us a bet­ter bike though, and at least we can give them some in­for­ma­tion from a full race dis­tance to hope­fully help things.”

‘I didn’t come here to fin­ish 11th... we had a prob­lem with the rear tyre’
