Alice Team make steady start to Indianapolis adventure

Alice Team make steady start to Indianapolis adventure

Like the rest of the MotoGP grid the Ducati satellite pair Toni Elias and Sylvain Guintoli battled against the conditions on a wet opening day at the new Indianapolis track.

Alice Team duo Toni Elias and Sylvain Guintoli give their reactions to concluding the opening day of the Red Bull Indianapolis Grand Prix tenth and sixteenth respectively on Friday.

Toni Elias - tenth

`I was much better this morning. In the afternoon we tried a different setting for the bike and when we went back to this morning´s set-up the rain was coming down even harder, not allowing us to improve. The asphalt is really slippery in the first part and is not easy to find the right way to go. In the old part the situation is more under control.´

Sylvain Guintoli - sixteenth

`This morning I had some difficulties. In the afternoon I started much better but after I registered my fastest lap time I slipped on the wet track and ended up on the ground. It was a pity because afterwards I couldn´t get the same feeling back and the weather got even worst.´
