Quotes after competition one during Phillip Island.


Dr. Markus Schramm, Head of BMW Motorrad: “The first
competition was an immensely critical miracle for us, and we can be very
confident with a result. We knew that a new BMW S 1000 RR has a
really good bottom for a use in WorldSBK though we positively could not
design that both riders would measure points in a initial race. A big
enrich to a whole group and colleagues during home in Munich and
Berlin for a work finished in a brief growth time. Nevertheless,
we also saw currently that we still have good potential.”


Marc Bongers, BMW Motorrad Motorsport Director: “We
are utterly happy with a weekend so far. We have shown in a sessions
that we can be with a front-runners. On a other hand, we can also
see where we are still losing time during a impulse though we were wakeful of
that when we came here after a few exam days and we are operative on
it. As shortly as we urge in this area, we’ll be in a mix. We are
also gratified since dual and a half months ago, we did not expect
these results.”


Shaun Muir, Team Principal BMW Motorrad WorldSBK
“I consider both riders did really well. We could not have
approaching most some-more from Tom. He was in a conflict with a front guys.
In a improved conditions we could have stayed in a tow, though eventually
another supplement and him messed any other adult and he mislaid hold with the
front guys. In my heart, we felt tip 6 was a possibility; seventh is
kind of where we approaching to be. So for me, Tom had a good race. On
a other side of a garage, Markus apparently suffered with
subordinate and a bad start. we addition, he struggled with hold though he
was in a association of some really good riders and finished usually ten
seconds behind his team-mate – with a most poorer grid position. So we
can take a lot of wish from it and will make some changes overnight.”


Tom Sykes: “Consistently, we have been there in the
brew so we am apparently utterly astounded about a swell of a whole
BMW Motorrad WorldSBK Team. To be so rival after usually 6 test
days is utterly special. we consider everybody has seen on lane that we had
some reduction on a true line though a certain is that a BMW
S 1000 RR is positively doing a pursuit in a corners. There’s no
arguing that we have a really good bottom set-up in terms of chassis,
wiring and brakes. The intensity is really there. We have one
competition underneath a belt now; we keep on operative and we keep on
progressing. And we have to say: for a bottom start, we consider we
astounded utterly a lot of people.”


Markus Reiterberger: “We continued to urge in
morning practice, though it seems that we start struggling with hold as
shortly as temperatures rise. In a Superpole, we had an emanate with a
sensor though we also have to acknowledge that we did not have that comfortable
feeling and therefore didn’t have a good lap. Unfortunately my start
was not a best, and on a initial laps we attempted to save a back tyre
for a distance. we succeeded, though altogether it was usually not probable to
finish serve ahead. Position 13 is not what we privately expected,
though for BMW, finishing seventh was a good result. we consider there is
still a lot of intensity in me and in a bike that we can exploit. We
will keep operative and I’m certain we will succeed.”
