The current MotoGP 2016 world champion, Marc Marquez crashed out of the race when he was pushing extra in the midway stage.
After winning the race Crutchlow said, “I was terrified, I broke really weak into Honda ever lap and I know it’s critical. I was scared with that and I knew I had to keep pushing and keep the tyre warm. I was confident I could catch Marc and in the last 10 laps I wasn’t even pushing. I pushed when the sun was in to keep heat in the tyre, and I’m happy for my team, I think we could have beaten Marc in the race too.”
“This morning we discover that we have a good pace with the conditions. Step by step I come back, at the beginning of the race the first lap was very funny. I try my best to fight back but Cal’s pace was so strong” Rossi said after the race.
