British MotoGP: 'Bad weekend' but Crutchlow praises marshals, fans

“I could see a lot of support was for me so obviously I'm disappointed not to have a podium or even the win, but I'm a realist and we're a long way from a win at the moment.”

Crutchlow now plans to get back to basics and enjoy riding once again at the forthcoming Misano round.

“We've lost our way with the fuel tanks a bit, lost the feeling with the bike. I also think other teams have evolved. Honda have found something and Yamaha as well. So we'll be looking at Misano to get back where we were,” he explained.

“I went from being one-second off a race win at Sachsenring and four-seconds at Assen to finishing 20 seconds behind. For no obvious reason.

“For Misano I'm just going to let the team sort out the bike and just ride it and have fun. I had a bad race at Laguna and Indy, a shit race at Brno and a bad race here. We need to get back to enjoying riding and being competitive.

“We also need to sit down and discuss some things with Bridgestone because there were far too many crashes in MotoGP again this weekend, for no obvious reason.”

Amazing! If Cal had been even winded and on the ground a few seconds more,it could have been tragic,but still the only thing people can comment on is a bad race for the guy! Well done people. Respect to the Marshalls:the unsung heroes of motorsport.
