Qualifying didn't finish as expected for Aoyama

Hiroshi Aoyama finished the qualifying for the Motorcycle Grand Prix of Malaysia with 14th position for the start of tomorrow's race. The 28-year-old Japanese is not happy with the result as he is steps behind after loosing yesterday's session due to technical problems with one of his two Honda RC212Vs. The result expected was much higher than 14th. The Interwetten Honda MotoGP Team was hoping for more on Aoyama's favourite track, but the Malaysian track is more difficult than expected. Some adjustments will be done during the Warm up session tomorrow morning and the team hopes that the result in the race will be more satisfying than in the qualifying.

Hiroshi Aoyama, 14 -- 2'02.778:
"We had massive problems with the front end feeling during the qualifying session. I was able to improve my lap time, but it was not as I had promised myself. We tried the bike we were not able to use yesterday this morning and it was better, so we used it, but we lost a whole session yesterday and that's not good for us. Tomorrow in Warm up we will try some more things, but we don't have much time left."

Tom Jojic, Crew Chief:
"Unfortunately Hiro could not show what he is capable of doing today, as we lost so much time with the bike yesterday and therefore today we could not finish as much as we usual did. We will try some more ideas tomorrow in the Warm up and hope that the changes will be positive."
