Moto2: Elias has title in mind

Toni Elias starts the final eight rounds of the inaugural Moto2 World Championship, this weekend at Indianapolis, with a 55 point lead over nearest rival Andrea Iannone.

As such, the four time Moto2 race winner is starting to think seriously about the title - although his Gresini Moriwaki team manager Fausto Gresini warns it's too early to become 'obsessed' by it.

"We are leading the championship but we must stay focused because there are still many points at stake and even though we go to Indianapolis looking to win we know who our rivals are," said Elias. "Going into the race in America we have to start thinking seriously about the championship and keep this objective in mind."

"Now comes a more difficult phase and we must not lose concentration," stated Gresini. "We are still taking it one race at a time and not thinking obsessively about the championship just yet.

"We want to stay competitive over the last few races and, if we can, continue to win of course. We know that Elias is as determined and focused as possible and the team will try to put him in a position to continue to be the standout rider in Moto2."

I hope he's back in MotoGP next year. He's shown flashes of brilliance in MotogP in the past, he's dominating a huge field in Moto2 and he's probably faster than half the field in GP right now.

blah - that is a terrible analysis. You honestly think a winner in 4 different classes, and current Moto2 leader, gets by because of tire regulations? He was 7th last year in GP, on a bike that was only middle of the pack until mid-season. He's fast, period.
