Nakano gets further acquainted.

Shinya Nakano believes he can strive for an even better result in the upcoming MotoGP races after using the two-day test at Brno to fine tune the new RC212V to his particular riding style.

The Japanese rider was one of the revelations of the Czech Republic Grand Prix after coming across the line as the best Honda in fourth for his first event riding the 2009-specification satellite machine.

Even so, Nakano is adamant that there is more to come from himself and the bike over the remainder of the season once the Gresini team start liaising with Bridgestone to extract the most out of the tyres and the bike.

Furthermore, Nakano, who is now latched onto Repsol Honda rider Nicky Hayden in the overall standings, thinks he has the bike working well for him following the two-day test that left him with the fifth best time.

“Today we were able to carry out more set-up work on the RC212V, which we still don't completely know. The dry track time yesterday and today has allowed me to build up my confidence with the bike – I had a good race here at Brno on Sunday but we hadn't had enough time to adapt it completely to my riding style.

“The objective of this test was to find something more suited to our demands and we managed that – everything went as planned. At the end we were able to do some tyre tests with the Bridgestone technicians, testing two new types of compound.

“I didn't do as many laps today because after the race weekend and a long first day of the test the tiredness started to kick in. Other than that I'm happy and confident about the next race at Misano!”
