DIFFICULT MOTO2 DEBUT FOR GINO REA AT QATAR

  Date: Thursday 12 April, 2012
Gino Rea's lack of feeling for his Moriwaki Moto2 machine continued into his Grand Prix debut, the British rider bravely battling to the finish despite the high risk of a crash. The team, that uses GBRacing motorcycle protection - now face a race against the clock to produce a better machine ahead of the next round at Jerez.

Gino Rea (26th)

"I am very disappointed. It has been a tough weekend with many problems. We tried something different for the race but it was no better. I got a good start and made up 10 positions in the first lap but couldn't maintain it. Even at this pace it felt dangerous on the edge of the tyre and I was constantly close to a crash. To almost be on the floor on every lap is not right when you are this far from the front so we have work to do. We can see the problems on the data and the team are working really hard. Hopefully we can come up with something for the next race."

Fausto Gresini

"We knew it would be a difficult race. Gino has been struggling all weekend and we have not seen his true potential here. We have to work hard to give him a better bike for the next races and when we do his performances will be much better."
