MotoGP Rider Cal Crutchlow at MugelloMotoGP Yamaha Tech 3 Team rider Cal Crutchlow put in an astounding performance during a tense and dramatic qualifying session ahead of tomorrow’s Mugello MotoGP race in Italy.
The British rider’s aspirations for a second front row start in 2013 appeared to have ended when he crashed at Turn 3 shortly before the halfway point of QP2. The 27-year-old hurried back to the paddock to immediately mount his backup YZR-M1 machine.  However, at that stage Crutchlow had fallen down to 7th on the timesheets.
Undeterred by his earlier get off, Crutchlow brilliantly kept his focus to catapult himself to the top three with a stunning lap of 1.47.771 during the final moments. As the action intensified, Crutchlow dropped back to 6th before improving his pace again in a nail biting final lap of 1.47.632 ensuring that he’ll start from 4th position on the grid for the 4th time in a row this season.

Cal Crutchlow 4th 1.47.632 – 7 laps:
“That was certainly another eventful qualifying session and after crashing out I can’t complain too much to finish fourth and be only 0.004s away from the front row. Luckily I could make it back to the paddock pretty quickly and get out on the second bike and to be on the second row is a good result given what happened. I have been struggling all weekend with the bike to be honest. And although this is my third year at this track, I still don’t feel so comfortable, so to be near the front and not running a bad pace gives me confidence for the race. I need to improve in the first sector and that was my biggest issue yesterday, so we have work to do. It is going to be a long and tough race and we need to make the bike work better. My Monster Yamaha Tech 3 Team is doing an awesome job to help me find the best setting and hopefully I can be fighting for the podium again tomorrow like I was in Le Mans.”

MotoGP Andrea Dovisioso and Ducati at Mugello on the first row

Andrea Dovizioso qualifies on the front row at his home GP in Italy.  Nicky Hayden was eighth.

Ducati MotoGP racer Andrea Dovizioso turned in an emotional performance during qualifying at Mugello with a remarkable final lap in the Q2 session that put him on the front row for tomorrow’s TIM Italian Grand Prix.

Nicky Hayden suffered with grip problems that relegated him to eighth-best.  The American will start from the 3rd row.

Dovisioso’s accomplishment was all the more remarkable given the fact that after a hard get off the previous day, he wasn’t sure if he’d be able to ride, due to a sore neck.

This marks Dovisioso’s second front-row qualifying performance in a row.

Michele Pirro made it into the Q2 session for the first time, and he will start the race from 10th on the grid.

Andrea Dovizioso – Ducati Team, 3rd (1:47.628)
“It feels incredible to make it onto the first row at Mugello, especially as a Ducati rider! It was one of my goals, but I still can’t believe it, particularly after yesterday’s crash. The Clinica Mobile and my physiotherapist did a really good job of making my neck feel better, which gave me the opportunity to push hard in qualifying. It still bothers me, but I can push at almost 100%, and because yesterday I didn’t even know if I’d be able to race, I’m very happy. We worked really well this morning, improving the setup a little, and I was pretty fast this afternoon, but when the tyres wear a little our pace isn’t good enough to fight for the podium. Anyway, we’ll try to do our best to get a good result tomorrow for Ducati and all our fans.”

MotoGP Rider Nicky Hayden at Mugello

Nicky Hayden – Ducati Team, 8th (1:48.006)
“Today didn’t go as well as I had expected, and I’m not happy to be eighth. I was almost a half-second faster in qualifying here last year, and I was also better in the test we did here a month ago. I haven’t been able to get the grip I need to make the bike turn. Both ends are moving around a bit at the apex, and I’m getting pumping on the exit. The bike was improved for qualifying, but I still wasn’t able to do a good enough lap to get on the first two rows. We just need to see where I can improve and try to do something better tomorrow.”

Michele Pirro – Ducati Test Team, 10th (1:48.564)
“I’m happy to have taken part in Q2, which seemed almost like a Saturday race! However, I don’t think I took advantage of the extra grip that the new tyre can give this bike in qualifying, like Dovizioso did. All in all, I’m quite pleased to have been pretty fast and consistent in all the sessions. That means that the new bike is starting to improve, and that we’ve taken a step forward from Jerez.”
