Cal Crutchlow is looking to qualify and finish inside the top ten at Motorland Aragon following a couple of confidence-settling results at Indianapolis and Misano.

The Briton stopped a run of poor races with his tenth place finish at Misano, the first time he had featured inside the top ten since finishing seventh in the Catalunya Grand Prix.

Though he remains a fairly lowly 15th in the overall standings, Tech 3 Yamaha rider Crutchlow is feeling confident heading back to Spain to Motorland Aragon, insisting he has regained some composure with his Misano performance.

"I'm raring to start this weekend having spent a few days with the Monster Yamaha Tech 3 Team in France," he said. "It has been great spending some quality time with the crew while also training hard after a couple of really physically demanding races in Indianapolis and Misano.

"We've managed to pick up a couple of respectable results recently to restore my confidence, but as a rider you always want more, so the goal this weekend will be to qualify and finish the race inside the top 10. Aragon is another track I've only ever seen on TV and I can't wait to ride it. It looks like a lot of fun with some undulation and some fast, sweeping corners.

"I think it might suit my style because it doesn't look like a circuit with a lot of strong braking points. It is never easy trying to learn a new track, but the confidence gained in the last couple of the races means we can start the weekend in a positive frame of mind."
