Leon Camier grabbed his maiden MotoGP point in only his second premier class race after a terrific ride on the Drive M7 Aspar Honda.

The British rider, filling in for the injured Nicky Hayden, finished 15th behind Karel Abraham to score a superb result in the Czech MotoGP at Brno.

Camier, who only made his MotoGP bow at Indianapolis, may also fill in for American star Hayden at Silverstone, which would be a dream opportunity to compete in his home Grand Prix.

"Today I felt much more comfortable than last week in Indianapolis; we had more data and more hours of riding under our belts, and that allowed us to be more consistent," he said.

"I am happy because we have improved a lot in a short time, but as I said, we need more time to fully understand the bike.

"Completing an entire race has helped me to understand the behaviour of the bike and the tyre wear, which are completely different to what I am used to with other bikes," Camier added.

"Taking a further step in the learning process has helped me to gain confidence."

Camier says it would be a dream come true to compete at Silverstone.

"Although I hope Nicky recovers as soon as possible, if I had the opportunity to also ride for the team at Silverstone it would be like a dream come true," he said.

"It's a circuit I love, I know it well, and I am convinced that I could take another big step forward there."
