Elías misses out on top ten in Brno

Saturday, 25 August 2012

The starting grid for the Czech Republic Grand Prix was finalized today, during this afternoon’s qualifying session that took place with track and ambient temperatures significantly lower than yesterday’s scorching temperatures.

For the Pramac Racing Team and its rider Toni Elías, it was a difficult qualifying session, due to both a lack of feeling with the Ducati machine and a traction issue, especially at some points of the track. Tomorrow the twenty-minute warm-up will be used at its best to improve his bike and make him able to fight for better positions during the race.

"I’m pretty disappointed with today. I hoped to go much better, but we weren’t able to be consistent or even to improve on yesterday’s time. We worked hard during today’s practice sessions, trying different solutions on our Ducati, even if it took quite a lot of time out of our qualifying. Fortunately, in the end, we understood some interesting things, which we hope will help us tomorrow. So I’m still optimistic: we can have a solid race and make up some positions."
