Elias: I am very stubborn

"I feel confident ahead this race because I am very stubborn and the crew will help me to adjust the bike for the Jerez layout" - Toni Elias.
Last year at Jerez, Toni Elias took the first of seven wins that carried him to the inaugural Moto2 World Championship crown.

But this Sunday he'd be probably be pleased with a top ten finish in the MotoGP race, after a winter spent at the tail of the testing timesheets and then an accident, while in last place, during round one in Qatar.

"Obviously, I am very happy to be back at the Jerez race track. In my opinion it is one of the best rounds of the season thanks to the atmosphere and the warmth of the Spanish fans,” began the Honda LCR rider.

“The Qatar GP was a very tough weekend for us and I absolutely want to restart from Jerez. We are still struggling a lot with the bike set-up, although we have worked very hard.

“Our main issue remains the chassis set-up and suspension regulations to make the bike more stable in the rear.

“However, I feel confident ahead this race because I am very stubborn and the crew will help me to adjust the bike for the Jerez layout."

Tony did more than win one race at Estoril. His last year in MotoGP 2009 he finished the championship in 7th and was on the podium at Brno. Not seting the world on fire but a solid enough result. To55ers on here are far too quick to jump on the cliche bandwagon ... "Dani can't last a race, Rossi is washed up, Stoner always crashes, Spies can't start, blah, blah, blah". Elias deserves his promotion from Moto2 and he deserves a few races to get himself and the bike sorted out for 2011.
