Moto2: Luthi satisfied with final test

Thomas Luthi did a little too much work on days one and two of the Jerez Moto2 test - meaning that the Interwetten Moriwaki rider was one of a number of rider to hit the 750km engine running distance early on day three.

“Tom used the first two days to learn more about his bike and we tried many settings with the bike as the conditions were almost perfect. Without the limits of kilometers and tyres we could have done a lot more, but this was the same for all the teams,” said team manager Terrell Thien.

Despite the early end, Luthi still set his best overall lap time on the last day, which was good enough for eleventh on the combined timesheets - and only 0.571sec from fastest man Claudio Corti.

“Of course half a second is not a big gap, but I want to run in front,” said the former 125cc world champion and 250cc podium finisher.

“All together this test was quite positive. We were able to try a lot of things and we found some good solutions and after having difficulties in the beginning, we could work in the right direction at this test.

“Unfortunately there was the kilometer-limit and we could not do much on the last day. Now I am looking forward to the first race in Qatar, where I want to attack the front,” he declared.

Testing is expensive and should be banned completely. Also, racing is expensive. Riders should be pushing their bikes around the track in neutral by hand. May the best rider win.
