Edwards asks Honda for new chassis

Colin Edwards asked for more help from HRC after struggling to seventh place in the Gauloises Grand Prix Ceske Republiky on Sunday. The American blamed his disappointing performance on the chassis of his Honda RC211V, which he says does not work with the latest tyres being supplied by Michelin.

"We put a soft tyre on in the warm-up which we ruled out for the race because it was spent after six laps," explained Edwards. "We went for a harder tyre – the same as the other Honda and Michelin riders – but it didn't work well with my chassis.

"I started to get some chattering problems after a few laps and it prevented me from pushing forward. To really get over the chattering problem I need the new chassis from Honda – I am the only Honda rider on Michelin tyres using the same chassis as at the start of the season."
