Free practice in Indy makes Luthi confident

Tom Luthi finished the first free practice of the U.S. Grand Prix in Indianapolis on 15th position after the Interwetten Moriwaki Moto2 Team had done some important set up work on the bike. Luthi had his difficulties with the choice of the tyres, but after another change of tyre in the last third of the free practice session the lap times of the 23 year old Swiss steadily improved and he could catch up some positions at the end. The youngster form Bern is positive about this weekend, as the conditions in Indianapolis and the weather are great. After important set up work was done today, the concentration can be on the performance.

Tom Luthi, 15 - 1'47.582:
"The practice went well. Of course you wont believe this when you see the position we finished in and we are not satisfied with this position neither, but we really did some very good steps forward today with the set up and with this result and the good weather in Indianapolis I am positive about the weekend."

Terrell Thien, Team Manager:
"The practice started off slowly. We chose a tyre, which did not suit the situation and had to change it again. After that, all went well and Tom could improve continuously. We are satisfied and confident, that this weekend will be better than some of the ones before."
