Fourth and fifth row for Alice pair

Fourth and fifth row for Alice pair

Ducati satellite colleagues Toni Elias and Sylvain Guintoli were in contrasting spirits after qualifying twelfth and fifteenth respectively in Germany.

The reactions of Alice Team duo Toni Elias and Sylvain Guintoli to their qualifying results at the Alice Motorrad Grand Prix Deutschland:

Toni Elias - twelfth

`I am happy today because I felt better on the bike and we have improved our lap times. Twelfth position doesn´t of course satisfy me, but we have been really consistent today and the race rhythm compared to yesterday has improved a lot. If I start well we can achieve a good result. Usually I struggle in the early laps so I will have to do my best to stay with the fastest riders and not lose too much time.´

Sylvain Guintoli - fifteenth

`I am really angry. After this morning´s slip I lost a bit of confidence. We have to forget about this session. Our potential is much better than fifteenth position and tomorrow morning, when we will have both bikes at our disposal, I will have to ride for as many laps possible to get back the best rhythm.´
