Porto preoccupied by preseason progress

After making the move from Aprilia to Honda at the end of the 2005 season, Sebastián Porto has a few worries on his mind. Preseason tests have shown little encouragement, and the Honda RSW250 has been able to match Jorge Lorenzo's Aprilia on few occasions.

The Argentine is confident that he can reach his full potential in Dani Pedrosa's former team, but is nonetheless expecting a difficult season. Porto is counting on his experience in the category and the Honda bike to turn the tide.

Whilst in Jerez for last week's testing, Porto spoke with motogp.com and gave his thoughts on the coming season, just two weeks away.

"I'm a little angry. We're having a lot of problems, it is something general in Honda, because everything has gone backwards," said Porto.

"I'm referring to what we tried here in November with the 2005 bike. It is a mystery to me as to why we- or at least I- haven't been able to go round in the same times as back then," continued the 250cc star.
