Crash in the previous race still causes problem to Karel Abraham
Trying to get used to his Ducati Desmosedici GP11 after nasty crash which he suffered on the opening lap of the Gran Premio de Aragón, the Cardion AB Motoracing rider Karel Abraham had problems even in the practice sessions for the Grand Prix of Japan.
„I spent the last two weeks relaxing and trying to forget what happened in Aragoń,“ Karel Abraham said. „Unfortunately, I can‘t be satisfied with the result of the practice sessions because I had a problems with concentration.“
Although the twenty one years old Czech rider completed twenty seven laps in both practice sessions and improved his best lap time from 1:49,813 to 1:49,305 by 0,508 seconds, he finished sixteenth, 2,515 seconds behind the fastest rider Dani Pedrosa.
„I can‘t ride as I want to. I have a problem to pay attention and I can’t concentrate enough,“ added. „Hopefully tomorrow I will get better.“
