Best qualifying of the year for Elias at Brno
The premier class took to a dry track after the morning wet practice session and the 60-minute qualifying for the Czech Repulic Grand Prix saw HRC racer Pedrosa gaining the pole position with a time of 1’56.591. After yesterday’s afternoon improvements LCR Honda rider Toni Elias completed 23 laps on soft tyres at the 5.403km circuit, recording a best time of 1’58.245 and grabbing 12th place on the grid.
This is the best qualifying position so far this year for the Moto2 Reigning World Champion and he is convinced he could have lapped even faster but this morning torrential rain has interrupted his TO DO list to fine tune the RCV.
Toni Elias: “Obviously I am satisfied because this is my best position on the grid so far this year and with the small improvements we have obtained yesterday I could ride the bike with more confidence especially on the front. I had some more things to try this morning but the bad weather has interrupted my plan. Anyway we have already taken our decision about the front and rear tyre for tomorrow’s race and we just need to fine tune the bike to confirm our overall package. This small adjustments make me confident for Monday test session as well”.
