The Pramac Racing Team had good results in the past on this circuit having conquer here two podiums at the start of his motorcycle history in 2003 with Max Biaggi and Barros in 2004. These results have unfortunately not been followed in recent years. The tenth position won by Mika Kallio last year is the best result for the team in recent years. The Team is waiting from the Finn rider a fast surrender after the bad weekend in Motegi. Mika has scored here three podiums in the past on this track over the years in which he took part of the 125 cc Championship.

Paolo Campinoti - Team Principal Pramac Racing Team

"I cannot hide my disappointment for the bad Motegi's result, we had high expectations for that race but unfortunately it has been completely dashed. Since Friday we have found some stability problems and feeling with the bike for both riders that did not allow us to be fast as our opponent. The gap of almost a second in every lap that didn't allow us to fight for a better result. But we must immediately close the bad Japanese's weekend track and focus on the next Malaysian Grand Prix. In the past we have had some success on this track where we had conquest twice the lowest rung of the podium with Biaggi and Tamada. The hope is that both riders can be able to redeem in the best way Motegi's race and become involved in a great race. The goal is to win a double top ten. "

"What can I say, the result of Motegi is not exciting. Unfortunately I had some problems with my forearm that is still not in perfect condition after Aragon's fall. I hope I can be in good condition in Sepang where I had the possibility to ride my bike during last year race and during the winter tests we had here. I will have to further improve my feeling, but I have a bit of information on which I will work hard to fight for the top ten positions. "

Mika Kallio - Pramac Racing Team

"We have to soon forget the disastrous Japanese Grand Prix and focus on the next Malaysian Grand Prix where I will try to redeem the bad weekend that just ended. I have a good score on the Malaysian circuit of Sepang, in fact I have won here three second places in the previous seasons and I managed to be very fast. Last year I have finished the race in tenth position after a good race where I had managed to climb back up to the ninth position. "
