MotoGP – Mixed Conditions Play Havoc With Toni’s Qualifying In Mugello

July 3, 2011


Uncertain weather conditions interfered with LCR Honda rider Toni Elias plan in the second day of practices at Mugello circuit which hosts the seventh round of the calendar. After yesterday’s rain marred second session, premier class riders were anxious to rejoin the Tuscan track and this morning third free session was conducted in the dry.

But track conditions changed completely for the 60-minute qualifying session held under cloudy skies with light rain and Elias could not complete his TO DO list finishing the session in 16thposition (1’50.742). Casey Stoner topped the timesheet followed by Spies and Simoncelli.

Elias – 16th: “I am not satisfied and this weather makes me nervous. I know it’s the same situation for everybody but I had some things to adjust on the bike and could not test anything. In the first part of the qualifying when the asphalt was still dry I rode the standard bike I lapped this morning. Then I came in to make a couple of changes on the other bike but suddenly it started to rain and I could not complete my set up plan. I hope we can fix the bike in tomorrow’s warm up”.
