Antena 3 D´Antin - A difficult day

Antena 3 D´Antin - A difficult day

Norick Abe, still with fever, will start from the fourth row of the grid of the Pacific Grand Prix of Motegi. It was a hard session for the Japanese rider, as the Antena 3 Yamaha d´Antin man had lots of chattering problems. Jose Luis Cardoso, meanwhile, qualified just behind Abe after having improved his lap times in a difficult session.16. Norick AbeIt has been a difficult session because of the chattering in the rear tyre and that didn´t allow me to feel comfortable during the qualifying. In not 100% fit but that hasn´t to be an excuse and I think tomorrow everything will go better.17. José Luis CardosoI could improve my Friday´s lap times, but I can´t be happy. The qualifying times are very tight and the problem is that we couldn´t improve as much as expected because of the chattering. We must keep working to solve the problem and we still have the warm up to find a solution.
