Cal Crutchlow discourages retirement at the end of the 2020 season

LCR racer Cal Crutchlow is unlikely to retire at the end of the 2020 season. Crutchlow still wants to prove himself after an unsatisfactory performance in the 2019 MotoGP.

Crutchlow declined after promising in the first half of this season by scooping up two-third podiums. However, after finishing fifth in Brno Crutchlow twice fell in Austria and San Marino, before finishing 12th in Buriram, Thailand.

As a result, Crutchlow just scored 102 points to occupy the ninth position of the MotoGP standings 41 points behind Fabio Quartararo, (7) as the best satellite team racer.

Not long ago Crutchlow had openly talked about his contract now, it might be the last. However, his poor performance later could have whipped Crutchlow to continue his career after his contract expired in 2020.

“Now I will be the opposite [with my future] I want to continue because I want to prove myself that I have speed, and I can win,” Crutchlow said quoted by Autosport. “Maybe right now it’s not good, so I need to extend [my career].

“If I’m happy with what I’ve achieved and I have speed, then I’ll stop. If I don’t [have to speed], then maybe I should prove myself again that I can do it.”

“Well, I’m not going to retire this year, I still have another year. But I’m more looking for what they can bring next year than what we can do this year, to be honest,” added the 33-year-old British rider This year.

Crutchlow was able to recover after disappointing results at Buriram, when the 16th series was held at Motegi, Japan on 18-20 October.
