Quotes after competition dual during Most.

 

Marc Bongers, BMW Motorrad Motorsport Director: “I
consider we can be gratified with a formula today. Tom had a unequivocally good
Superpole competition and didn’t have to go true on during T1 so he could
hang in his fifth position and brought it home unequivocally well. Michael had
a good locate adult all a from 17th, though a initial path was formidable and
he mislaid scarcely 5 seconds to a front runners in a initial lap. He
finished one second off P9 that would have given us ninth position on
a grid, though it was not meant to be so we started 17th again with
Mickey for a underline race. In competition two, Michael reliable his very
good gait and to come all a approach from 17th to seventh is pleasing,
nonetheless this confirms that we need to start in those initial three
rows. With Tom, we will have to see that issues he had. He was still
utterly tighten in a organisation though couldn’t reason his position and dropped
down to ninth. Jonas had another formidable day so we will have to
examine what is going on there, though he doesn’t have his mojo at
a moment. Overall, it was good to be in Most, and to have a fans
behind with us. It is a good lane blueprint however with some safety
points to be lifted for subsequent year.” 

 

Shaun Muir, Team Principal BMW Motorrad WorldSBK Team:
“The Superpole competition gave us all we had hoped, all but
a fact we didn’t utterly get that ninth position that Michael needed
to give him an increasing grid position. Tom finished a unequivocally good pursuit on
a ‘X’ tyre and did good to finish fifth. It was a genuine contrition for
Mickey; if he had only got into ninth position it would have finished a
genuine disproportion in categorical underline race. Nevertheless, Michael did really
good not to get tangled adult in a pile-up in a initial dilemma and got to
work unequivocally discerning and one by one picked off a riders in front of
him. we consider another path and we could have had sixth, though it proves
how clever Michael is feeling with a BMW M 1000 RR, so altogether a
good pursuit by Michael. Tom got a good start though got a bit stranded in the
center of a competition unequivocally and couldn’t urge his path time. He got
upheld by a few riders though still worthy to finish ninth. So,
overall, we leave Most undone on Friday, not so bad on Saturday
and a lot happier Sunday.”

 

Michael outpost der Mark, BMW Motorrad WorldSBK Team: “I
consider a during a finish of a weekend it was not too bad. Especially
this morning in a Superpole competition we had such good pace, we improved
over a second compared to yesterday and we was unequivocally happy on the
bike. Unfortunately, we didn’t get a good start, we was a bit detrimental at
T1 and couldn’t benefit as many positions as we hoped so for competition dual I
had to start from 17th again. The initial run off a line was good and
afterwards a bike started to wheelie so we mislaid a tiny bit of time.
Something happened during T1, though we was utterly intelligent and took a parsimonious line
and avoided a lot of people. After that we had good gait and we was
throwing a guys in front one by one though we only couldn’t get by
Rinaldi. Together we upheld some people and in a finish we attempted to grab
sixth or fifth. Overall, we consider after all a struggles this weekend
a group deserved a plain result.”

 

Tom Sykes, BMW Motorrad WorldSBK Team: “It is what it
is, I’m not wholly happy. In a scurry competition we was means to maintain
10 laps though in a second competition we was struggling to only finish off
a spin in a latter stages. There is still work to be done. We made
a integrate of tiny changes though we can’t do what a competitors are
doing in a final 8 laps. We have learnt a lot this weekend and
positively I’ve been tighten to several bikes, so we know where we are
clever and where we need to work on. Overall, it was not a best
weekend though there were some positives in Superpole and in a sprint
race, so now for a longer competition we can demeanour to urge that package
and keep working.”

 

Jonas Folger, Bonovo MGM Racing: “Today’s competition was
a best of a weekend, even if it was not utterly as successful as I
had envisaged. we had problems environment quick path times this weekend,
and am still carrying issues with several areas of a bike. We will
keep operative hard, comparing a information with that of Tom and Michael,
and wish to take a subsequent step forward. My idea is to consistently
finish in a points.”
