Elias Suffers Misery In Qatar

1 Mins read

Toni Elias’ poor form throughout warm-up and qualifying translated into an shocking race for the Moto2 champion resulting in a crash midway through the race.

Whilst on his own in 14th, Elias managed to ditch it into the gravel at high speed, forcing him out of the race.

Speaking after the accident, Elias said, Well… this first week end has been very tough for me and the team.”

He continued. “Since the 2-day test prior to the race we have been struggling with the bike set up and even after. We have tried different adjustments to find the right feeling on this track but at the end we could only lap at low 1.58. And that was my lap time during the race from the first lap till the crash. We knew we could not do better than this as we knew our limit but I feel sorry for the crash. I want to cancel this bad week end and start again in Jerez”.
