Qualifying did not go well for Luthi

The 20th starting position for the Grand Prix of Aragon tomorrow is not really the result Tom Luthi and the Interwetten Moriwaki Moto2 Team did hope for this weekend. Especially after ninth, fourth and seventh position in the three free practice sessions yesterday and this morning Luthi was looking for a better grid position. Nothing big has been changed at the bike and they did not "try around" as the 24-year-old Swiss stated earlier already this weekend, but they still suddenly suffered big problems during the qualifying which have to be solved now. There is not much time left until tomorrow's race and only the Warm up will show if the solutions they still are looking for did help.

Tom Luthi, 20 -- 1'56.124:

"The qualifying did not go well at all and not as we expected it to be neither. We changed the rear tyre during the session, but should have also concentrated on the front tyre, but what really was the reason for my result we don't know yet. We have to sit together and analyze and see if we can find a solution for tomorrow and there is not much time left now."

Terrell Thien, Team Manager:

"I am disappointed, it looked much better in the free practices. Tom seems to have more problems as the other riders with the soft tyres. But why that is we don't know. Unfortunately the best race set up doesn't help much when you have to start the race from 20th position. Tom will have to fight hard to catch up some positions."
