Tom Luthi; step forward after Sachsenring
The weekend of the Grand Prix Ceske republiky finished better than the weekend of the Grand Prix at the Sachsenring circuit for Tom Luthi and the Interwetten Moriwaki Moto2 Team. Despite the massive problems with the electronic Luthi could achieve an eleventh place today and after the results of the rest of the weekend and the step forward since Sachsenring the team is satisfied with this result.
The 23 year old from Bern is currently third in the championship and with eight races to follow Luthi still has the chance for the title in 2010 in the new Moto2 class. Until Indianapolis in two weeks time the team will be looking to find the problems with the electronic and solutions to solve them, so Luthi can attack again from the first session on in the USA.
Tom Luthi, 11 -- 41'16.486:
"This was a difficult race for me. I already lost positions at the start and I didn't have the power to catch them up again. We will all sit together and have a meeting about the problems of this weekend and will find solutions."
Terrell Thien, Team Manager:
"With the given conditions and the problems with the electronic I am really happy with the result. Tom finished eleventh and did miss the Top 10 only by one place and with this background this is great. Before Indy we will have to find solutions. The team did a great job this weekend. I did not expect that a result like this would be possible with all the problems."
Daniel M. Epp, Rider Management:
"It was not easy this weekend. The team did not find acceptable settings and they had problems with the electronic and Tom had massive problems with acceleration. The reason for the problems need to be found until Indiananpolis."
