Aoyama: “I’m sorry for Dani”

Aoyama: “I’m sorry for Dani”

Repsol Honda’s test rider Hiroshi Aoyama will once more fill-in for Dani Pedrosa in Jerez, as the Spaniard recovers from arm-pump surgery.

Aoyama was battling for 11th place in Argentina but crashed out of the race on the final corner after clashing with Danilo Petrucci.

Hiroshi Aoyama:
"I’m sorry for Dani that he is not able to return to racing this weekend at his home grand prix. Honda have asked me to substitute for him again and it’s an honour to do so. I have made some progression with the team during the Austin and Argentina race weekends and they have helped me a lot, so I hope we can make another step in Jerez! It’s a tight track on these big bikes but I’m looking forward to racing there with Repsol Honda."
