Fiat Yamaha manager Davide Brivio spoke to motogp.com after the Grand Prix of Turkey to evaluate what he had predicted would be a difficult race for the team. Colin Edwards was caught up in the first lap crash between Olivier Jacque and Dani Pedrosa and unable to finish a race for the factory outfit for only the second time, whilst Valentino Rossi suffered tyre problems and dropped down to his lowest dry weather ‘non-crash' finish since the Japanese Grand Prix in his debut season.

"This is a blip that we hope will be an isolated incident, because the bike was working well and the riders were feeling good. The only thing that remains for us to do is work hard with Michelin to ensure that it doesn't happen again," declared Brivio.

The Italian has also pinpointed China as one of the more difficult tracks for the team, and ruled out any new additions in terms of parts for the M1.

"We won't have anything new for China; we will work with what we have. We're expecting a difficult race in Shanghai, because of the long straights that they have there. The following European rounds will be more suitable for us," he concluded.
