Updates give Alice Team a boost on first day of German practice

Updates give Alice Team a boost on first day of German practice

Thanks to some technical updates received from Ducati, Alice Team riders Sylvain Guintoli and Toni Elias improved their performances on Friday compared with recent rounds.

Sylvain Guintoli and Toni Elias react to concluding the opening day of action at the Alice Motorrad Grand Prix Deutschland in eleventh and thirteenth places respectively.

Sylvain Guintoli - eleventh

`It has been a good day for us, I am only sorry I have made that mistake on the last turn while I was about to register my best lap time. I have a really interesting race rhythm. After the Barcelona test we have worked really well and the new updates we have just received has made the bike much more easy to ride. I feel it is much more responsive and this allows me to be more consistent on every lap.´

Toni Elias - thirteenth

`I did my best lap time following another rider and therefore I can´t be too satisfied. But I am still hopeful. The bike has improved a lot thanks to the new updates and from tomorrow I am sure we will be able to do much more. I am convinced about it and we will do our best, as always!´
