Team Principal Lucio Cecchinello is delighted to have Crutchlow tied down for the next two seasons having seen a hint of his potential earlier this season.
”I am happy to announce the extension of our cooperation with Cal, who is one of the most talented riders in the whole MotoGP field. He has got the skills and the potential to battle with the top riders and fight for the podium spots, as he demonstrated in Argentina earlier this season. 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”.
