Jorge Martinez ´Aspar´ reflects on his riders performance in Germany

I´m pretty satisfied with the way things have gone. Obviously, we didn´t get the results we all hoped for, but we can say it was a good weekend.

Fonsi Nieto is having a great campaign, and there´s not much to criticize about the work he´s doing. I´m convinced that Melandri´s winning streak won´t last, because I know Fonsi is able to win as he already has done before. The gap isn´t unbreachable : it´s only 25 points and there´s still a long way to go. I believe we can still challenge for the title.

Toni Elias is demonstrating great progress. He may work in Fonsi's shadow, but he´s excellent and we have seen that in the last couple of races. I think he´s now ready to try racing for victory. At the Sachsenring, it was a shame he crashed on Saturday, as his left hand was slightly injured for the race ; without this, he could have got a better result. $$$We´re getting closer to the last part of the season, but we´ll go on holidays before that. I hope this summer break will do us good. We´re going to improve a few things within the team, and most of all, we´ll have rest. Fonsi will have a few days off in Ibiza, while Toni will go to Mallorca for some professional activities and a few days off too. I think we have all deserved it !.
