Britain's Cal Crutchlow will return to MotoGP action this weekend at the Red Bull Ring as he stands in for the recovering Franco Morbidelli.
Crutchlow, who hasn't ridden competitively since the end of 2020, has set himself no targets other than to acclimatise back into a racing environment.
"I’m really looking forward to being back on the grid and getting into the swing of a race weekend again, although it’s going to feel very different to the job that I’ve been doing this year as Yamaha’s test rider," said Crutchlow.
"The circuit at Spielberg isn’t one that I’ve enjoyed too much in the past, however I did finish fourth in 2018 and that was a good result. It’s not a fast and flowing circuit, it’s somewhere where you need to be quick and very precise.
"I don’t have a target as such when it comes to results, my main aim will just be to try to improve session by session. I’ll be working with Ramon Forcada, who knows the Yamaha bike very well. I think it will be good as Ramon was with Yamaha when I was. I’m sure it will go well; I just want to make sure that I do a good job for the team."
