INTERWETTEN HONDA MotoGP TEAM -- Better Feeling motivating for race

The Grand Prix Ceske republiky started slow for Alex de Angelis and the Interwetten Honda MotoGP Team and also the second free practice this morning was not better. But the Qualifying on Saturday afternoon was a motivation for rider and team for tomorrow's race. The result of a 15th starting position does not really look like an improvement, but De Angelis' feeling with the bike improved and made him happier today than yesterday. In the Warm up before the race there will be done some more changes to the set up, which will hopefully change the end result of the race in a positive way.

Alex de Angelis, 15 -- 1'58.522:
"The result doesn't look like, but I am happy as I stayed in the Top 10 for half of the session at least this afternoon. This shows that we are going in the right direction. I hope it will continue like that. Finally I have a good feeling with the bike and I was able to enter the corners with higher speed. We will try some more changes to the set up during the Warm up tomorrow and I hope I can also stay in the Top 10 during the race then."

Daniel M. Epp, Team Manager:
"We improved with the base settings and we know, because of the not so good results in the last races, that we work in the right direction. Unfortunately the qualifying did not go very well at the end. But still we think that Alex can do a Top 10 result tomorrow in the race."
