Different front setting doesn’t pay off for Elias in Italian heat

LCR Honda MotoGP Toni Elias had a difficult session yesterday with the mixed weather conditions at the 5.245Km track and he wasn’t able to get the most out of his RC212V. Elias took another brilliant start from the last spot on the grid today but after few laps he has started to struggle with front. The Spaniard managed to finish the race in 15th place but he is obviously upset about his poor performance.
Toni Elias – 15th: “Yesterday I was the last one after the practice thus I thought I could have risked with a different front setting for the race. But it was a wrong decision and during the race I have paid for that. Even today I took another exciting start from the last row but in the second lap I immediately felt that the front was unstable. I made a big effort to finish the race but obviously this is result is very frustrating for me and the Team”.
