Elías scores his first points of the season

Elías scores his first points of the season

The Gran Premio bwin de España saw Toni Elías score his first points of the 2011 World Championship, with a ninth place in a wet race which made conditions very tricky.

The LCR Honda rider started from the last spot on the grid and was able to move up the order, whilst many riders in front of him, crashed due to the weather conditions. The Spaniard rode a consistent race to pick up his first points of the season and his first for LCR Honda. After a non finish in Qatar, the reigning Moto2 World Champion claimed seven important points with his result at the Andalusian circuit, but still needs further set up adjustments to improve his performances aboard the RC212V.

"Honestly I am not happy about the performance as my feeling on the bike was still bad, but the 9th position in these conditions is a positive result for me and the team. I know I have been lucky because many riders crashed out but I was capable to end the race, although the tyre situation was very difficult for everybody because we only had the warm up session on the wet. However, we must continue our good job to improve our future performances. I am aware of this and want to thank my team for their efforts".
