Guintoli takes turn to shine with season-best result

Guintoli takes turn to shine with season-best result

Sylvain Guintoli was the highest finishing rider for the Alice Team when the MotoGP series hit the IMS.

Following Toni Elias´ two podium finishes, it was Sylvain Guintoli´s turn to put in the best result for the Alice Team at The Brickyard. The Frenchman came in seventh after working his way up from fourteenth on the grid, with Elias in twelfth place at the end of the race.

Sylvain Guintoli - Seventh

`Unfortunately I didn´t start well. I took too much time to warm up the new tyres but when I found a good feeling I have done a good comeback. If I would have started better I could have surely finish in a better position. I am anyway satisfied because I come from a race, in Misano, where I didn´t go so well and now I found back a good feeling with the bike. I hope to be able to improve even more in the last four races.´

Toni Elias - Twelfth

`I can remain positive because we have improved with this sort of track conditions. Surely the twelfth position isn´t the best but it went better than the previous occasions. A pity the race wasn't dry: this morning during the warm up I felt really good and I could have fought with Valentino and Casey for the first three positions. I remain anyway trustful, we will surely have another possibility to do well in the next four races.´
