Set up problems for Tom Luthi

Until now the Grand Prix Ceske republiky touched the limit for Tom Luthi and the Interwetten Moriwaki Moto2 Team and the set up of the Moriwaki MD600 causes many problems to them. The attempt to improve the set up was not successful so far and the 23-year-old Swiss had to take a lot of risk to be able to stay with his competitors on the track. The team hopes that this will change in the Warm up tomorrow and that they will be able to improve the set up of the bike to help Luthi to find his rhythm back that gave him four podiums this season so far. The youngster from Bern is fit and wants to attack and it does not only frustrate him that he cannot show this.

Tom Luthi, 13 -- 2'04.605:
"The weekend was quite difficult so far. We had really big problems with the set up. The qualifying went totally mad and we tried to improve the bike. Especially the rear grip caused many problems. I had to be on the limit all the time and that was risky. Unfortunately today was not enough."

Terrell Thien, Team Manager:
"It is not easy for Tom to find his rhythm back. He has massive problems with the rear grip, but the technicians that are behind him know what they do and I am confident that they will fix the problem."
