Luthi still has a lot of work to do

Tom Luthi discovered today at the Motorcycle Grand Prix of Germany that there is still a lot of work waiting for him and the Interwetten Moriwaki Moto2 Team to be successful at the Sachsenring circuit. The tight and small racetrack brings more problems with it than expected and the MD600 needs some improvements for its set up. The young Swiss, who got operated on a broken left collarbone just about two weeks ago, has problems with the massive heat here at the circuit as well, but Luthi will try all he can do to get the best possible starting position for Sunday's race as this is important at the tight first corner if you have more than 40 riders turning at the same time.

Tom Luthi, 15 -- 1'27.093:
"We tried a lot today and tomorrow we have to try further things, as we are not satisfied yet. Then I also had problems with the tyres as many other riders had as well. In general this first session on the Sachsenring circuit was not really great. But as I said it was the first session and we have to look at the data and analyse and work tonight to get the bike right for the race. The starting position is very important here."

Terrell Thien, Team Manager:
"We tried many different settings, but we are not satisfied with the result. The track is very tight and it is not easy to find the perfect set up. We will continue to work on it tonight and tomorrow in the practice session and then we will see where we are."
