Good result for Rolfo and the Fortuna Honda team in South Africa.

The Honda Fortuna team confirmed their progress over the weekend, with Roberto Rolfo finishing in 5th place at the Africa's Grand Prix. All the work done until now, trying to solve the various minor problems, particularly with the front end, seems to have paid off.

Starting from the second row Rolfo managed to maintain a good pace and fought hard for the 4th place before finally finishing 5th.

Roberto Rolfo: "I am pleased with how both myself and my team have worked - the overall the result is positive. I made a couple of mistakes which no doubt cost me places but in general I feel we are on the right track."

"My first mistake was that I got the clutch stuck coming off the line which caused me to lose contact with the front of the race. Then I made my second mistake right at the end while trying to hold off Sebastian Porto. I'd managed to keep him at bay for a number of laps but then ran wide in a corner and let him through. Obviously I regret those two errors, but on balance it has been a good weekend."
