Cal is extremely professional and during the season we have built up a great rapport. it’s a pleasure to be working with Cal again in 2016 and I look forward to the years to come.”

“I am very happy to continue my relationship with LCR for 2016 and ’17,” added Crutchlow. “Lucio has a fantastic team and I look forward to growing further with them and with Honda. We started the season well and I believe we can score some great results in the rest of this year and in the season to come.”
