Tamada takes tenth in exciting Australian GP
If only it had been dry
The forecasted rain started to fall at Phillip Island when the lights went out for the MotoGP race.
At this point, the Race Direction decided to repeat the start giving riders and technicians additional five minutes to decide possible setting
changes. All riders preferred to remain with the dry setting as up to then rain was really light.

The race started again with the ground becoming wetter and wetter. Makoto Tamada, after the first seven laps, when he was in twelfth position, entered the pit-lane and change to his “wet” setting second bike.

The rider finished the race moving up to tenth position.

Gianluca Montiron – KONICA MINOLTA Honda General Director
“Today, for the first time, we used the possibility to change the bike in case of rain, allowed under MotoGP rules. The weather conditions were unstable since the start and we had to face an exciting first part of the race as we knew that the rain increase would have led us to the machine change. Makoto entered the pit box when he was twelfth, the lap after his re-start was fourteenth and needed some laps to adapt himself to the “rain” tyres. Once defined the rhythm, he made up some positions ending tenth. I would have rather preferred dry conditions as, after the warm up, Makoto seemed able to be fast. Probably, we lost an occasion. Now, I wait with curiosity for the next Makoto's home GP to better define what our future could be.”

Makoto Tamada – KONICA MINOLTA Honda Rider
“Today I really wanted to race in dry conditions as this morning I felt to be able to turn on a fast pace to stay among the leaders. After Sachsenring, this is the second not lucky race of the season for me. I hope I paid my dues and to be able to make the best use of the potential I have in occasion of my home race of Motegi”

Giulio Bernardelle –KONICA MINOLTA Honda Technical Director
“This morning, after the telemetry data analysis, our impression was to have a very good potential in dry conditions. Unfortunately, the race was characterized by the rain changing all values classification recorded up to the warm up. I must thank our staff; they were all well coordinated during the re-start procedure and the fast preparation of the “wet” setting bike.”
