Quotes after competition dual during Doha.

 

Marc Bongers, BMW Motorrad Motorsport Director: “Of
course, that was not utterly how we had hoped to spin off a season.
However, we continue to onslaught to adjust to changing conditions, as
we saw in these vacillating temperatures. That is one of a areas
that we will have to work on. We were means to collect some-more valuable
information during this weekend in Qatar, that we will be means to use
during a winter mangle as we ready for subsequent season. Overall, we
feel certain about how it went. From a start, we noticed 2019 as a
year for training and we did record 4 podiums, one stick position
and many tip 6 finishes. That is something to be gratified about and
we can build on this subsequent season. we would like to appreciate a whole BMW
Motorrad WorldSBK Team and a riders Tom Sykes and Markus
Reiterberger. Everyone has been operative tough given a plan got
going. No-one gave adult after any setbacks and that ensured that this
was a successful entrance season. Thanks to everybody for that. Markus is
now behest farewell to a group – we would like to wish him all the
best for a future.”

 

Shaun Muir, Team Principal BMW Motorrad WorldSBK
Team:
“It was a tough day today. We didn’t make most progress
from a initial day on lane on Thursday and has been a difficult
weekend ever since. We felt we had some movement from Magny Cours
going into Argentina, that didn’t spin out positively, and that has
followed us unequivocally into Qatar where we have been chasing a set-up.
Markus on paper looked like he was carrying a good weekend, he had good
gait in competition one and into a Superpole competition though unfortunately could
not modify that into clever positions today. Tom couldn’t find the
change nor movement so sadly we are signing off in Qatar not where we
hoped to be. However, on a whole we have achieved a targets of 2019
in what has been a successful initial growth deteriorate so onwards and
upwards for 2020.”

 

Tom Sykes: “It’s not a approach we would have favourite to
finish a deteriorate given a formula that we have had previously. We have
arrived during a circuit where we are in a dilemma for a prolonged time which
is an area on a bike that we need to work on, so altogether a very
unsatisfactory weekend to finish 2019. On a whole, a new project
finishing eighth in a championship is comparatively good considering
there are 6 bureau bikes from opposite manufacturers with a lot
some-more experience. We have had some unequivocally clever showings, we have shown
a intensity of a BMW S 1000 RR and a attribute with a new
group has worked well. Going into a winter we would like to consider that
a information a group collected can be put into growth and
eventually a improved starting indicate for subsequent season.”

 

Markus Reiterberger: “We did adjust a bike a little
for a warm-up and a event went unequivocally good for me. we was in
third place for a prolonged time and finished a event in fourth place.
That felt fantastic. However, a initial spin in both races put paid to
my hopes a bit, nonetheless we had started good both times. In a main
race, we got trapped between dual riders on spin one. we had to take
shy action, that forced me to go intensely far-reaching and cost me a few
places. After that, it was a flattering waste competition for me, though in the
shutting stages we did conduct to pass 3 riders and measure some
points in a end. At slightest had some renewed procedure on my final
weekend with a BMW Motorrad WorldSBK Team, that helps me to feel a
bit improved before a break. We had a good time and we would like to
appreciate everybody for giving me this opportunity. we wish a project
each success and we wish to be means to minister something to it
again in a future.”
