Having alternated between the FTR and Inmotec chassis on his Kawasaki-powered CRT MotoGP machine for the last two rounds, Ivan Silva heads for this weekend's fourth round at Le Mans still unsure which chassis to select.

Indeed the Spaniard, who used the part-carbon fibre Inmotec design to score his only point so far at Jerez, plans to let his Avintia Racing team decide for him.

"I have been working with both motorbikes so far - especially the one with the carbon chassis - and I don't know which way to choose from now on," confessed Silva.

"My team will make the appropriate decision and I'll do as they say."

Team-mate Yonny Hernandez has stuck with the aluminum FTR frame throughout, scoring two points in the opening Qatar round.

The Columbian was on course to add to that total last time at Estoril, until he fell.

"I was disgusted with my crash at Estoril and we would have achieved a good result without it, that's why I want to try and go for it at Le Mans," he said. "I am feeling physically fine and I like the track a lot.

"I think we have been doing a good job we just need to make our efforts come true. I want to cross the finish in France and I want to do so among the best riders."

Aspar's Aleix Espargaro is currently the leading CRT rider in the MotoGP standings, holding twelfth overall with nine points.
