Comments

Andi Farid Izdihar | IDEMITSU Honda Team Asia (20th)

"We've worked very well this weekend and the bike improved every time I was on track. I'm sorry for this result, it is not what we expected. I can do much better, and I should be within the group fighting for the top 15. At the beginning of the race, I felt stressed but lap by lap, I recovered my positive feeling, and for the last ten laps I felt good. Finally, P20, but next round in Brno I hope we can be more in front."

"Not so many things to say. I'm sorry for the result. The temperature was high; I made a mistake in the last corner, losing the front and crashed. I need to be positive and learn from the mistakes. We will see in Brno."

Hiroshi Aoyama | Team Manager, IDEMITSU Honda Team Asia

"Chantra crashed in the race, again. His third crash in three rounds. The first two weren't his mistake, but this time he was riding on his own, and he crashed. Anyway, the rider is ok and we can go ahead for the next race.

Andi made positive progress during these days, and he was happy with the setting of the bike. We expected to see him further in front. He missed a little bit of feeling with the bike at the beginning, so he couldn't get the pace he should have. He did his best lap at the end, meaning he was getting back the feeling on his bike. That's good for him. We should now concentrate on Brno. I would like to thank all the staff for their hard work during these two weeks in Jerez."
