Toni Elias, who had his best qualifying outing of the year yesterday, has lined up on the 12th spot on the grid for the 22-lap race conducted with ambience temperature of 24 degrees. The Spaniard put in a good performance reducing the gap to the top ten group and he is confident that with a few more adjustments to his machinery he can make further steps forward on tomorrow’s testing day.
Toni Elias – 11th: “Well… My start was not brilliant today because I have slipped on a dirty part of the surface and could not catch the first 5 riders in the first corner which was my target. After that my pacewas quite good but not enough to follow Aoyama and in the last two laps I had fun battling with Barbera for the 10th position. At the end he beat me but the most important thing for me is our pace in the race because today we have finally reduced the gap to the leading group. This is a positive step forward for me and the Team and we will try to get further improvements tomorrow”.
