First roll out for De Angelis

Alex de Angelis, who had his first roll out today for the Interwetten Honda MotoGP Team and who replaces the ainjured Hiroshi Aoyama until he is back in his seat, used the first free practice of the Motorcycle Grand Prix of Germany today to get used to the 800cc of the Honda RC212V again. The first free practice went well for rider and team and better results can be expected.

De Angelis says that the Sachsenring circuit is his favourite track and when the bike will be changed to his needs it looks good that the lap time will be even better before the race on Sunday.

Alex de Angelis, 17 -- 1'24.101:
"I am really happy, as I am not far away from the other riders. If we adapt the bike a little bit better to my quite aggressive riding style I think I can get even closer to the others. We have a lot of work to do tomorrow, but I am confident to improve further."

Daniel Epp, Team Manager:
"I am quite satisfied with the result. Alex is getting faster each time and we only miss 1.5 seconds to the Top. Many changes were made on the bike to adapt it to his riding style. The team did a good job in the right direction. For the first free practice this really is a good result."
