Crutchlow on Nakagami: “I think he’s on for a good year”

“I’ve always tried to help Taka and I always will, he’s a really good kid,” is how Cal Crutchlow (LCR Honda Castrol) begins his assessment of his teammate, Takaaki Nakagami (LCR Honda Idemitsu). But he’s quick to correct himself in one way. “No disrespect to him, I’m not really calling him a kid! But he was a rookie this year and I was impressed with what he did. I think the motorcycle he was on this year was difficult to ride, as we know it was down on top speed, now he’s got the bike that we had this year and he’s obviously showing his potential. He’s always fast in Jerez, we can’t take that away from him, but even in Valencia he was good. So we know he’s maturing as a rider, and I’m impressed as much as the team are.”
