Guintoli notches best qualifying result of 2008

Guintoli notches best qualifying result of 2008

Alice Team´s Sylvain Guintoli got his best qualifying result to date with the satellite Ducati outfit at Donington Park on Saturday, in contrast to his colleague Toni Elias.

Sylvain Guintoli and Toni Elias provide their contrasting reactions to qualifying twelfth and eighteenth respectively at the bwin.com British Grand Prix.

Sylvain Guintoli – twelfth

`I felt like the bike was faster with the track full of water. In the afternoon session it dried up a little and I wasn´t as fast as in the morning. This has probably been the best day of the season so far, with fifth and twelfth positions in the two sessions. I thought I would be able to get in the top ten in qualifying. I will try to do it tomorrow in the race which is of course much more important.´

Toni Elias – eighteenth

`Today nothing went well. Near the end of the morning session it seemed like things were getting better, but in the afternoon with the different conditions of the track our job got even more complicated. I really don´t like being in last place. I hope I will be able to improve tomorrow in the warm-up to be more competitive for the race.´
