Sete Gibernau talks about his feelings and hopes with his new team

Sete Gibernau has already got a taste of the machine that has dominated this year's MotoGP season. Just after the Valencia GP the Spanish rider logged his first kms. on the RC211V he'll be riding next year alongside Japanese Rookie of the Year Daijiro Kato and talked to Motogp.com about the experience. "It's just my first outing on the new bike but I must say I'm very happy. I've got the feeling I'm in the right squad and with the bike that suits me best. I hope I suit the bike as well and that we can build a winning package", said the Barcelona-born rider after his test on the Ricardo Tormo tarmac. "I don't want to speak bad about Suzuki. They've helped me a lot in this couple of years and they've worked really hard both on the 2-stroke in 2001 and on the 4-stroke this 2002, although it's a bike in evolution and that's why we didn't get the results we expected. But when you lap on a Honda you clearly see it's a winning machine; you may be able to develop certain aspects of the bike, but it's a winning machine. It works well, it's perfectly balanced but the best of all is that I've discover I can ride this bike as I like". About his future and his career, the Catalan rider assures: "I can talk a lot and say many things but I'd prefer the results to talk for me. I've been lucky in the past, I've been in top teams as Yamaha and Suzuki, but I never achieved the results I expected and I had to see other riders just behind me with the same bikes so I thought I was in the right place but at the wrong moment. Now I want to prove with results what I'm capable of. We've got the tools and I just have to work hard to build up a winning team".
