San Carlo Honda Gresini take collective best result of the year at Brno

San Carlo Honda Gresini take collective best result of the year at Brno

The highest finishing Honda riders, San Carlo Honda Gresini had one of their best days of the season in the Czech Republic.

San Carlo Honda Gresini equalled their best individual placing of the year at Brno, courtesy of fourth placed Shinya Nakano. Alex de Angelis was an disatisfied eighth.

Shinya Nakano - Fourth
`We took another step forward with the new bike today although I have to say that it has not been easy to get this result. We came to Brno without any test data but the team did a great job with the set-up. I want to thank Honda and Team Gresini for giving me the chance to ride this bike, which represents a great opportunity for me to improve on the results we´ve managed so far. I´m just disappointed that I lost positions at the start because I made contact with another rider but at the same time satisfied to have recovered and finished the race in fourth – a result I can be pleased with.´

Alex de Angelis - Eighth

`Even though I finished the race as the best of the RC212V satellite riders, today´s result isn´t too satisfying because we were expecting to finish in the top six. We weren´t too far off that target but this wasn´t the race we´d imagined. Unfortunately after the first lap, when I lost several positions, I made several passes but lost the position to other riders who were faster down the straights. Tomorrow we´ll make the most of the test here at Brno to continue to improve ahead of the San Marino Grand Prix, which is of special importance to me.´
