De Angelis sure of Saturday progress

De Angelis sure of Saturday progress

San Carlo Honda Gresini´s Alex de Angelis is placing his bets on a new rear tyre for improvement in his lap times on Saturday.

Alex de Angelis was not too downbeat after finishing seventeenth in practice for the Polini Malaysian Motorcycle Grand Prix, with a late tyre switch giving him hope for Saturday.

Alex de Angelis - Seventeenth

`In the final stages of the second practice we put on a different rear tyre, on the advice of Bridgestone, which improved my feeling with the bike quite a lot. Unfortunately I was only able to get four laps on it before the time ran out and I'm sure we could have made major improvements on the lap times from the morning session and the first half of this afternoon. We´ve got plenty of work to do tomorrow - we made some changes to the second bike this afternoon, some of which were quite effective, so we want to incorporate those to the race bike.´
