“I'm pleased with this weekend in Brno, even if it was my first time on this track. I still have a lot of pain in my hand. P15 is a fantastic result for me because after ten laps I couldn't push on the left-handers because of the pain. In Austria, for sure, I will be stronger.”

Hiroshi Aoyama | Team Manager, IDEMITSU Honda Team Asia

“We are proud of Chantra. He did an excellent, strong race. He pushed every lap, even knowing that he had a lot of pain in his hand. He was constistent, without mistakes. It could be even better if qualifying was in dry conditions, because he didn't do many dry laps on this new track. Considering these facts, this is a fantastic result.”
