Cal Crutchlow heads to his third of six MotoGP races for the WithU RNF Yamaha team as the paddock arrives in Thailand.

Two previous visits to the Chang International Circuit saw Crutchlow secure seventh and twelfth place finishes in 2018 and 2019 respectively, with the Brit scoring points in both his recent stand-in showings over the past fortnight.

“After a good result in Motegi, I’m looking forward to Buriram,” Crutchlow confirmed, after fighting Yamaha colleague Franky Morbidelli in the Japanese Grand Prix. “I raced there some years ago, like the other guys. I quite enjoy the circuit. It’s a lovely country, so we are impatient to come back to Thailand with the whole MotoGP paddock.

“I obviously didn’t expect to be visiting Thailand racing, maybe for holidays. But now we go there after two back to back races.

“This third one will be more difficult with everybody not having the experience there in the last couple of years with these bikes, but I look forward to it and hopefully we can have another good result there as a team.”
