Nonetheless, the sponsors reportedly unhappy with the results of the rider, the best achievement was finishing in the top eight at the British Grand Prix June 12. Therefore, Elias being warn in order to the next three series he must improve his performance.
In addition, Elias has also been identified in conflict with the opinion of the setting motor LCR team. The spat was confirmed by a spokesman for the LCR, Oscar Haro.
"Mugello is a disaster," said Haro cited Catalunya Radio. "Toni has realized that it was not going well. From Germany, (we) go back to setting the HRC and our crew chief will decide, and Toni accepts his role as a pilot and technician. RC212V is more than proof to be very competitive."
Capirossi may return at Sachsenring
Loris Capirossi rumored to be returning to the track race at the German Grand Prix on 17 July. Italian rider has been absent in the last two series after a terrible accident in Assen, the Netherlands, on June 25.
