Set up improvements with Honda RC212V

The weekend at the Autodromo Brno, where the Grand Prix Ceske republiky took place, finished with a 13th place for Alex de Angelis and the Interwetten Honda MotoGP Team. The work with the set up of the Honda RC212V went well this weekend and De Angelis improved his performance regarding to the races before as he had a much better feeling with the bike. Unfortunately he was pushed to the side while he was riding comfortable in the middle group and lost his position. Despite the result the weekend did go well for the team and more work on the set up will continue tomorrow, when the MotoGP class stays for one day testing at the Czech racetrack.

Alex de Angelis, 13 -- 43'51.368:
"The race started quite well, I was fast and I could stay with the group. Then Espargaro pushed me aside and I had to go wide and finished in the grass. I lost some positions. It was hard to fight back, but I could manage it. Then the bike started shaking really hard and I rode to the grass again. I lost the connection and had to ride alone and I could not catch up again. I am really sorry for this result, as I know it could have been much better today. The direction the team changed the bike in is the right direction, but unfortunately I could not show it with a better result."

Daniel M. Epp, Team Manager:
"In his third race Alex was much faster and could stay with the middle field with the other riders. Step by step he gets to grips with the 2010 Honda, but at the end he could not manage to keep the lap times he did before."
