WSS: Crutchlow expects Laverty duel

Cal Crutchlow has played down his substantial margin during qualifying for the tenth round of the World Supersport Championship at Brno, claiming Eugene Laverty is yet to reveal his true pace.

Crutchlow has been in imperious form around the Czech circuit from the word go, the Briton capitalising on a recent test there to break the lap record on each occasion he has ventured onto track.

Nonetheless, despite holding an eight tenth margin over Laverty by the end of qualifying, Crutchlow is expecting the Parkalgar Honda rider to prove a more consistent foe over a race distance.

“It wasn't so bad today considering we only used one set of tyres again,” the Yamaha rider said. “We found the new front tyre to be very good round here so we tried that and stuck to the rear we normally use. I did 15 good laps on them at the end so all good.

I think the race will be different, Eugene will be able to tag along and do the pace, I just don't think he's showing it today. I had a few moments out there, the wind was really strong and picked me up in a few places when it got under the front wheel and pushed me wide. Let's see what we can do tomorrow.”
