Quotes after competition one during Magny-Cours.


Shaun Muir, Team Principal BMW Motorrad WorldSBK Team:
“Tom did a good pursuit in Superpole, and we know he can do
that. His path wasn’t a purify path possibly so he was a bit disappointed
not to get pole, though happy with a front quarrel start. Tom’s competition was bit
unsatisfactory for him; he had a gait to be with Michael, though he was
removing beaten adult and pushed about a bit that disrupted his rhythm,
so he is not happy with ninth position. Mickey had a unequivocally difficult
day. We had a technical emanate this morning and mislaid a lot of time
that was profitable for us. So, to validate in P9 was not so bad for him
deliberation he’s not mastered subordinate on a BMW M 1000 RR yet. But
standard Michael outpost der Mark, he forage his teeth, he gets his head
down and battles his approach and gets stronger and stronger as a race
goes on that will do his certainty a universe of good. So, we can put
currently behind us and concentration on tomorrow and hopefully have a purify warm
adult and go into a Superpole competition and competition dual strong.”


Michael outpost der Mark, BMW Motorrad WorldSBK Team: “I
consider if we demeanour during a outcome it isn’t that bad, though it’s a contrition I
mislaid so most time in this morning’s session. In a races, we had a
good feeling with a bike and we wanted to try something opposite in
FP3, though we couldn’t do so. So now in a competition we am struggling a
small bit and uncertain either yesterday’s environment was improved or not.
But anyway, we am happy with a points, and we am looking brazen to
tomorrow’s dual races.”


Tom Sykes, BMW Motorrad WorldSBK Team: “It was
another good Superpole though we am unhappy with a competition today, and
unhappy during not being means to competition with a other bikes. Riding in
a group, we struggled with a engine heat and braking
opening all by a competition unfortunately. We were quicker in the
turns though couldn’t get tighten on a straights to make a pass on the
brakes. So, it was a frustrating competition though we will have to have another
go tomorrow.”


Jonas Folger, Bonovo MGM Racing: “After a really
earnest use sessions, a competition was unequivocally tough. we am finding
it flattering formidable to get adult to speed. With a full tank we had
problems overtaking. It took a prolonged time to pass one or dual other
riders. As shortly as we was means to float in my possess character after in the
race, things were most better. we wish we can find something for Sunday.”
