Poncharal to announce Checa decision today

A nervous Herve Poncharal spoke to motogp.com following the bwin.com Grande Premio de Portugal, awaiting Carlos Checa for talks on his 2007 season.

The Yamaha Tech 3 rider equalled his best performance of the season at Estoril, a spectacular seventh on the day of his 34th birthday. The Spaniard now has until today to confirm his intentions.

"We will know what the situation is in a couple of hours," said Team Manager Poncharal. "Carlos has been a key part of the development of this project, so we would like him to continue with us. By tomorrow we will find out if he is riding in yellow again, or if he will be with another team; possibly in green."
