Cal Crutchlow in recent weeks is discovering the joys of the family. Forcibly free from racing, he has the opportunity to devote more time to his daughter Willow and his wife Lucy. The entire family also intervened in the BT Sport interview (of which you can see an excerpt above) as part of BT Sport’s The Greatest Race, which asks the public to vote for their favourite MotoGP race of all time in which the British rider spoke about his future.
Last year he had vented the possibility that 2020 was his last season in MotoGP, but now he has had a rethink and has said it loud and clearly.
“My motivation is as high as ever. It’s funny that sitting around at home not being able to do anything, it shows your passion, that you want to be able to do your sport and your job. We have the best job in the world, sometimes it’s the worst, but we keep coming back and we want to keep coming back. I don’t plan to stop next year; if I have the opportunity to race then I will race. I have been very happy in the years with Honda and the LCR team and of course we have already started discussions even at the start of the year when testing was going on. I have to speak to them more in the coming months about hopefully riding for them in 2021, there’s no reason why I can’t, or I shouldn’t and hopefully that will happen".
