Kato heartbeat and blood pressure stabilised

Daijiro Kato showed slight signs of improvement last night, but remains in grave danger. His heartbeat and blood pressure have now become stable, but his brain pressure is said to be still high, which prevents doctors from applying any active treatment.

Meanwhile Fausto Gresini and his team have decided, together with Honda and the main sponsor Telefonica Movistar, to take part in the second Grand Prix of the season on April 27 with just Sete Gibernau. `This is a very difficult moment for the whole team,´ commented Gibernau. `I know Dai-chan very well, because we spent lots of time together last winter and I am sure that, if only he could tell us something, he would tell us to go and race at Welkom and to do our best. I believe the best way to give him our support right now is to keep on going forward, never give up and stay close to each other´.
