Crivillé and Elías begin their collaboration in Sepang

Alex Crivillé is already in place as Toni Elías´advisor this week in Malaysia. The former 125cc and 500cc World Champion and the young Fortuna Honda rider have spoken to motogp.com in two interviews, at what has been their first professional venture together at the Sepang Test.

Crivillé has expressed his thoughts on his new advisory role and predicted a great future for Eías in MotoGP.

"It´s a bit strange to be here and not training, but I think that Toni is doing a great job of fine tuning the bike" he explained. "Toni is a very brave and aggressive rider and I believe that if everything is at its peak he should be right up there fighting"

Elías has been calm in these first few days of preseason and has detailed his goals with his new Fortuna Honda team, with whom he will contest his second premier class campaign.

"I´m following the work schedule that my team is setting out, trying all the parts that we have at our disposal in order to see which combination works best. Alex Crivillé has a lot of experience and he knows when to give me tranquillity. To have him by my side gives me great confidence" said the Spaniard.
