Ducati MotoGP Tests By Cal Crutchlow


Cal Crutchlow has drawn the conclusion it is impossible to go any faster on the 2013 Desmosedici after matching the laptimes of Andrea Dovizioso, give or take a tenth.

The Isle of Man resident ended the three-day session with a time of 1’31.875, two-tenths slower than the Italian, after changing all manner of setup parameters. But he says that the bike he rode in Spain is a lot different to the one he is expecting to test at Sepang in February.

“We made a lot of changes to the bike, up, down, left, right and I had the same feeling with a lot of them. We changed the bike once to stop wheelying but gave away a lot of front-end feeling which we didn’t have really anyway. It’s good, it’s all information for the guys, which is what I wanted to do,” said Crutchlow, speaking at Valencia.

“From laptimes, and from riding against people I have beaten all year, I am not as fast on the Ducati as I was with the previous manufacturer. I don’t believe this will be the bike for next year anyway. Everything I have said is the same as every other rider has said. I said it after the first day and I am saying it now, so nothing has changed.
