Short second day for Aoyama

Hiroshi Aoyama and his MotoGP colleagues hat a short second working day today in Estoril / Portugal. After the session was already wet this morning, the rain got heavier in the afternoon and the track was completely under water, which was the reason for the cancellation of all qualifying sessions of all classes. The starting position for tomorrow's race was decided regarding to the combined times of all three practice sessions. Aoyama therefore will start the race from 16th position on the grid tomorrow, after he finished the third free practice this morning in 14th place.

Hiroshi Aoyama, 16:
"Unfortunately the Qualifying was cancelled. We wanted to try some adjustments on the bike and try to improve the lap times. But I think that the decision made was right, as it is quite risky to go out in these conditions. Tomorrow we will have to see what we can improve in the short Warm up time. Normally I prefer a dry race, but this time I think it would be better if we have a wet race as well."
