Elías: “We need a radical change”

Elías: “We need a radical change”

LCR Honda rider Toni Elías was disappointed with today’s 13th place result in front of his home crowd at the Gran Premi Aperol de Catalunya in Barcelona.

Local rider Elías qualified 14th yesterday on his LCR Honda using a 2011 RC212V chassis modified to suit his particular riding style. Although the chassis was a step in the right direction, the 28 year-old from Manresa aims to make a radical change to his machinery set up at Silverstone circuit next weekend.

Toni Elias:
“It was one of the worst races of my career because we could not even match yesterday’s lap time. We probably took the wrong direction with the set up, as the front and rear grip was really poor for the whole race. At the end we scored some points, but I feel bad for the team and for my fans. There’s something wrong and we need a radical change because we all deserve a better result. We have all been working hard since the winter test and we will continue this way”.
