Alice Team riders urging patience after opening practices

Alice Team riders urging patience after opening practices

Toni Elias and Sylvain Guintoli had some early troubles adapting their Ducati machinery to the Misano circuit on Friday.

Coming down with a bang from Toni Elias´ Brno podium, the Alice Team were left searching for improvement on the first day of action in Misano.

Toni Elias - Fourteenth

`We knew that we would have found some difficulties on this track, but for this reason we will not surely give up. We have ridden for many laps looking for the best compromise possible for this technical track. We need to have a lot of patience. Already this afternoon we made it to take a good step forward, but not sufficient to conquer a satisfying final position.

Sylvain Guintoli - Fifteenth

`The result is not good even if compared to this morning we have made a big step forward improving by a second. In the last attempt of the afternoon we have found a good compromise and this make us trustful for tomorrow. It seems like we have found the right direction to follow. I still lose too much time in the third sector of the track, some small adjustment in that part could allow us to sensibly improve.´
