Luthi starts Malaysian Grand Prix from first row on the grid

Tom Luthi will start the Motorcycle Grand Prix of Malaysia tomorrow from the first row on the grid as he qualified third today. The qualifying sessions of the last couple of Grand Prix were not very successful for the young Swiss and therefore he was really happy about his achievement as he has a big chance to fight with the front group. The target for tomorrow is defiantly a podium.

Tom Luthi, 3 -- 2'08.860:
"We could finish a lot of things today and I could cope with the tyre really well. The first row on the grid is much better than the fourth, from where I also had starts this season and I am happy about the starting position. Tonight we will analyse the data from today to see if we can find a little bit more grip, as this is a problem on this circuit. If we find that we have a very good package for tomorrow's race and I hope we can fight for the podium again."

Terrell Thien, Team Manager:
"This qualifying was really good and I am relieved that Tom finally has a good starting position again. The hard work paid off and maybe and hopefully we will achieve a podium again tomorrow."
