Elias not happy with just a single championship point from season opener

01 GP Qatar 4, 5, 6 y 7 de abril de 2013It has not been a good weekend for Toni Elías if we keep in mind that he and the Blusens Avintia team arrived at this first Grand Prix of the season with good expectations.

Although during the practice days it seemed that he had chances to get a better result, in the qualifying session he could not be as quick as he would have liked, so he was forced to start too far from the first rows of the grid to have real options to be among the first riders in the race. Despite that, Toni was optimistic and talked about the possibility of moving up quickly.

His race start was not bad, but he was not able to advance enough positions to be in the right group of riders and get “to the top”. Anyway, the World Championship has just begun, Elías has scored his first point and the enthusiasm and confidence remain intact.

Toni Elías (15th, +36.677): “I thought that despite starting far from the first rows of the grid it would go better because yesterday in the warm up we improved and I was convinced of being in higher positions. But seeing that we had advanced, we wanted to modify more things and maybe we were wrong. I am obviously not happy with this result but it does not discourage me and I will not allow the team to feel the discouragement. It is the first race, we have scored and I am still saying that we have bike and team to do it well. We will continue working and, without a doubt, the results we all want will arrive, you will see it.”
