New chassis for Edwards

Colin Edwards took delivery of a new chassis from HRC at Motegi and immediately reported an improved feeling with his Honda RC211V. Edwards, who has struggled with chattering problems all season, flirted with the front row positions throughout today's first qualifying session but was held up by traffic after returning to the pit for qualifying tyres and dropped to eleventh place.

"Honda have brought the new chassis for me here and I have felt comfortable with it from the start," said Edwards, who was eleventh fastest in a time of 1'48"221. "Now I can turn much easier and control the bike better. We have made a lot of changes over the course of the day and improved with each one.

"I have a good rhythm on race tyres and went into the mid 47s on a qualifying tyre without too much difficulty, although maybe we should have waited a little longer before going out because there was a lot of traffic. I'm looking forward to making more improvements tomorrow."
