Ducati’s Cal Crutchlow has intimated there is a lot more pace to come out of his Demsosedici GP14 in tomorrow’s Sepang MotoGP sessions especially in the wet as his team took a ‘wrong direction’ in bike setup.
The British rider says the dry times are still some way behind those achieved in pre-season testing but that is down to the track conditions and the fact it was very hot early doors in Malaysia today.
“We were going to try it this afternoon, that was always in the plan. I was quite pleased with today, I know the positions are not perfect but I felt we had some time in the pocket as such. I was quite fast in the dry initially, and in the rain initially, but we went the wrong way with the bike in the wet session and I wasn’t able to improve,” said Crutchlow, speaking at Sepang.
“We are a little bit off the times we were doing in the test here but I think, with the condition of the track, everybody is. It was really hot immediately this morning. Tomorrow we will look to improve and I am pleased with how it’s going. I believe we have not too bad pace in both wet or dry.”
