Ai Ogura | Honda Team Asia (2nd)

“The sensation after achieving my first podium is special. The podium was one of my targets in my rookie season. After two or three laps into the race I tried to follow Aron, but he had good pace, and it was impossible to keep up with him. After that, I tried to stay in front of the group. In the end, my strategy was perfect, and I’m pleased about that. I would like to thank the team and our sponsors. If I can continue like this in Thailand it could be nice. Since Le Mans I was thinking of a day like today.”

Hiroshi Aoyama | Team Manager, Honda Team Asia

“Finally, Ogura got his first podium in his career. Congratulation to Ai, he worked hard, and he deserves this podium. He was fast during the weekend, even in the wet or dry, and had good pace. We were expecting this to happen. But in the last few races, something always happened. Today, after so many close races, he did it, and I’m very happy for him. Thanks to the guys who support the team. This result is not the end, we will continue to improve, and we have to keep pushing. Thanks to everyone.”
