MotoGP Czech Republic: Camier expects another step forward in Brno

Following his eye-catching MotoGP debut at Indianapolis, Leon Camier immediately turns his attentions to the Czech Grand Prix in Brno.
Leon Camier says he expects to make another big step forward for his second MotoGP World Championship outing in Brno after coming remarkably close to points on his debut at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

The former British Superbike Champion turned heads with an accomplished first-time performance on the Drive M7 Aspar Honda in the United States, qualifying inside the top 16 and holding down a race position inside the points until technical woes consigned him to retirement.

Despite this, Camier was buoyed by his Indy efforts and is confident the more familiar surroundings of the Brno circuit will see him make further gains.

“Even though I didn't manage to finish my debut MotoGP race at Indianapolis I learnt a lot of things – mainly in terms of the direction we need to go with the chassis set-up and what I need to do to ride this bike fast. Hopefully at Brno we can continue working in the same way.

“I felt more comfortable with every passing lap of Sunday's race and understood what I needed to do to improve my pace, so I think that will be an important step for us going into this weekend at a circuit I know well.”

They should give Leon Aoyama's seat. He's already shown he can out perform him (#7 is simply not impressive in the premiere class). Solid run into the points one the first GP outing? Says a lot. The bike gave up but the mark was made.
