Crutchlow vs Lorenzo: disagreement on FP1 crash

“I was slowing down a little bit, I looked behind and saw Cal about three seconds behind me. I wanted to not go too fast but keep the speed up,” explains Lorenzo. “He came suddenly and completely lost control of the bike. For being the first Free Practice that risk wasn’t worth it. So we exchanged opinions a bit, he didn’t apologise at that point and said it was my fault – but he was good two hours later and came to my office to say sorry. It’s ok, it can happen. There are some riders that make these mistakes a little more often but this can happen, and the important thing is that he understood it was his mistake and said sorry.”
