Cal Crutchlow hopes he made amends for his 'stupid' race one fall with a run to fourth position in the second World Superbike race at Misano.
The Briton endured mixed fortunes around the Italian circuit after low-siding during the early stages of race one, but 'redeemed' himself by getting into the fight for the podium in race two.
Although he would lose out to Michel Fabrizio in the battle for third, much to his disappointment, Crutchlow is heartened by the Yamaha's improve pace over a race distance.
"I had an ok start in race two, but got beaten up a bit in the first corner on the first lap and basically had to recover from then on,” he said. “I was disappointed to lose out to Fabrizio at the end, I just lost a bit of drive out of the corner and he managed to get back under me.
“To come here and do the race pace we did at these grip levels was incredible, hopefully we can make some improvements at this week's Imola test and be even better. Race one was a stupid mistake, I had a full tank of fuel and just pushed the front a bit too hard trying to catch the front runners and lost the front, but I think I redeemed myself in race two."
Following his race one retirement, Crutchlow has dropped to tenth in the overall standings.
