Toni Elias continued his frustrating return to the premier class by crashing out of the opening MotoGP race in Qatar. Elias seems intent on proving that Honda are not universally the best bikes on the grid at present.
Toni Elias (LCR Honda RC212V):
“Well… this first week end has been very tough for me and the Team. 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.”
