Yamaha Sterilgarda riders get to grips with Brno in first qualifying - results

09.07.2010: Yamaha Sterilgarda World Superbike riders Cal Crutchlow and James Toseland ended the first qualifying session at Brno today satisfied with a good base set up. Despite suffering earlier in the day with a severe lack of grip on the track, the afternoon's qu

Yamaha Sterilgarda World Superbike riders Cal Crutchlow and James Toseland ended the first qualifying session at Brno today satisfied with a good base set up. Despite suffering earlier in the day with a severe lack of grip on the track, the afternoon's qualifying saw both improve their times as they fine tuned the set up.

Starting qualifying with a set up that didn't suit the track so well, Crutchlow spent some time in the session waiting in the pit while it was changed. Despite the lack of track time he came out in the dying minutes to take second fastest on the board, less than three tenths off the lead.

Team mate James Toseland was also looking comfortable in the session despite suffering from a chest infection. The first 20 minutes saw Toseland lapping comfortably and consistently inside the top four, only dropping to ninth towards the end and finishing just three tenths off fourth.


Cal Crutchlow, Yamaha Sterilgarda World Superbike Team (2nd, 1'59.571)


"it wasn't too bad today considering we all struggled for grip at the start of the sessions, it came a bit better later on. From my point of view we've got a lot of work to do chassis set up wise. We tried the set up we had in Imola but it didn't work here, so we didn't get many laps in the qualifying session as we were changing the bike.

We've gone back to our old base set up and it seems to be working better here. We're struggling for side grip a bit but the lap times towards the end of the fifteen laps I did weren't so bad. We'll see for tomorrow, and I hope Troy Corser is ok and back with us tomorrow."
 

 James Toseland, Yamaha Sterilgarda World Superbike Team (9th, 2'00.451)


"I'm not feeling very well at the moment, I've got a chest infection so it's been a tough day today. Consistency wise I think we're there and I'm quite pleased with the way the bike has been round the track today. I like the circuit a lot and we seem to be working pretty well. I just hope I'm feeling a bit better tomorrow."


Massimo Meregalli, Yamaha Sterilgarda World Superbike Team


"for the first day it was ok today. Pirelli bought some new tyres that we tested in Imola to run here as well. For sure the bike set up for both riders is pretty much there now so the main job we have is to find the right race tyre for both James and Cal.

We also need to fix some small details as both riders have some things they want to improve. Overall we are quite satisfied."
