Three more points for Aoyama in the World Championship standings

The Australian Grand Prix at Phillip Island Aoyama finished on 13th place today and because of some tyre issues, that didn't warm up and delivered the usual grip level, he could not improve from his starting position. Aoyama of course is not happy with the result and would have liked to ride faster, but as the feeling with his bike didn't provide him with confidence and he didn't want to take the risk to crash. In Portugal in two weeks time, where the conditions will be better for all MotoGP riders, he will try again to attack with new gained energy. After three weeks of non-stop racing the MotoGP paddock will have a short break and will be back in action on 29th of October with the first and second free practice in Estoril.

Hiroshi Aoyama, 13 - 42'14.157:

"I was waiting for the tyres to heat up, but the whole race I didn't feel the same grip level as usual and I had to deal with this problem. I would have loved to go faster, but it was not easy to deal with the bike with this problem. It is a pity that I could not improve in the race. The next race is in two weeks in Portugal and I hope I can be faster there."
