Set-up problems for Gibernau

Sete Gibernau reported that he was suffering from the same set-up problems as at Estoril two weeks ago after struggling to tenth place on the provisional grid for the Camel Grand Prix of Japan.

Gibernau completed 21 laps in the afternoon session with a best time of 1'48"947, nine tenths off pole setter John Hopkins, but said he was not convinced by either his grid position or his feeling with the bike.

"Obviously the weekend has not started in the best possible way, but hopefully it's only today," said Gibernau. "We have gathered a lot of data but we have the same problem as in Estoril. We spent Monday there to solve it but we've found the same thing again today.

"The positive thing is that we still have two sessions ahead of us and there is time to react. We need to improve the grid position and work on the race rhtyhm, which we don't have at the moment."
