Misano MotoGP Reaction: Toni Elias spares Ducati’s blushes
Toni Elias spared Ducati from a humbling home race in Misano today as he scored a second successive podium.
Elias, who finished second earlier this month in Brno, said: “After Laguna Seca things have changed radically. I always had much better feeling with the bike and the results prove it. I hope to continue this way for the rest of the season.
"I would love to fight for the podium at each race. I know it’s not easy but I will try. I had a lot of fun here today even if this circuit, with all these turns, hard braking and acceleration is really tiring.
"At one stage I tried to follow Lorenzo but I made some mistakes and I decided to hold on my position and here is when Pedrosa caught me up. Therefore I decided to calm down a bit and I found back the initial race rhythm.”
