Crutchlow extends Honda stay

Cal Crutchlow has signed a contract extension with LCR Honda ahead of the British MotoGP™ on home soil.

The 32-year-old has won three times, including in Argentina this year, and managed a total of seven podium finishes since joining the team in 2015.

Crutchlow has agreed terms on a new deal until 2020 as he eyes more success at Silverstone this weekend.

"I am very pleased to renew and extend my relationship with Honda HRC and the LCR Honda Team again in 2020," said the Englishman.

"We have all worked very hard and we have had great successes and will continue too, I'm sure.

"As I said in the past I have the best support I could ask for from Honda and Lucio [team principal Cecchinello] and his team do an excellent job to give me a competitive bike every weekend."

Crutchlow has collected 103 points in the 2018 season so far, putting him in eighth position in the standings.
