The Telefonica Movistar Honda 250cc team have confirmed that former Japanese Champion Hiroshi Aoyama will continue as team-mate to Dani Pedrosa in the quarter-litre category in 2005.

Aoyama has a discreet rookie season in comparison to the Spaniard but turned in several impressive performances at tracks he had never previously visited, including fourth place at Le Mans and Sachsenring and a podium finish with third place at Qatar. The 23 year old also finished on the podium at his home race at Motegi and finished the championship in sixth place.

"The team once again put their trust in Hiroshi Aoyama and have confidence that the experience and education he gained in his first season will put him amongst the frontrunners in the category in 2005," read a team statement.
