Honda Wins Constructors’ And Teams’ Titles

Qualifying >>

This key MotoGP race was won by pole-sitter Loris Capirossi (Ducati) from Valentino Rossi (Yamaha) in second and with Marco Melandri (Fortuna Honda RC211V) third. World Championship points leader Nicky Hayden (Repsol Honda RC211V) was fifth at the flag.

But as Hayden watched his points lead shrink to 12 points over his nearest challenger Rossi, Honda clinched both the Constructors’ World Championship and the Team prize via the Repsol Honda outfit. With two rounds to go Honda cannot be caught, but with a further 50 points up for grabs in the Riders’ series Hayden is now under acute pressure.

Capirossi stole into the lead into turn one at the lights with Melandri Marco close enough to him to edge past only to be re-passed by the Ducati man on that opening lap. Rossi lay third, with Sete Gibernau (Ducati) fourth, Shinya Nakano (Kawasaki) fifth and Casey Stoner (LCR Honda RC211V) sixth.

Stoner was flying and moved up to fourth on lap two setting an early fastest lap of this 24-lap race of 1m 47.910s. Capirossi responded immediately on lap three to record a 1m 47.797s time. Then it was Melandri’s turn on lap four with a 1m 47.552s lap. The pace would get hotter still.

Hayden had suffered a poor start and the Kentucky Kid was labouring in seventh place on lap six. Capirossi, Melandri and Rossi had separated from Stoner in fourth and Gibernau in fifth by lap seven. The gap to Stoner was 2.3 seconds, when Gibernau relieved Casey of fourth.

By mid-race distance the leading trio had put four seconds between themselves and Gibernau. But of more significance was the advantage Capirossi was pulling out over Melandri and Rossi – one second and rising. Stoner had now dropped down the order to eighth.

Casey couldn’t hold it either and crashed out of that position on lap 13 while Capirossi worked on stretching his lead even further. Rossi had now pounced on Marco for second and he then applied pressure on Capirossi. The Ducati man responded by working even harder on attacking the closing laps of this punishing track.

Hayden was trying desperately to reel in Nakano for fifth place and the gap stood at one second in the closing stages. Capirossi was a full 2.2 seconds ahead of Rossi and Melandri was not making any impression on the second-placed Yamaha man either.

This looked like the order the flagman would see as the final lap began but Nakano would crash at the bottom of the hill after running into the back of Gibernau’s machine in a last gasp bid to wrest fourth place from the Spaniard. Gibernau stayed on to secure that place, while Nicky inherited fifth from the over-ambitious Nakano.

Capirossi took the flag by a full five seconds in front of a 63,000 crowd here, with Rossi a clinical second and Melandri a valiant third. The World Championship lead is still Nicky’s with 236 accruing to the American Honda man. But Rossi now has 224 and Melandri 209. Capirossi sits fourth with 205.

The Constructors’ Championship is now Honda’s. The factory has amassed 319 points to Yamaha’s 262, with Ducati third on 218 points. Repsol Honda has won the Teams’ prize with 438 points to Camel Yamaha’s 328, with Ducati again third on 307.

Marco said, “It’s nice to be on the podium at Honda’s home race and I’m happy to have given them the Constructors' title. Today the pace set by Loris was extremely fast but the balance of my bike was also good and the tyres worked really well. After a tough warm-up, when we struggled a little to get the right feeling with a harder rear tyre, I went for slightly softer rubber for the race. At the start I felt I had the pace to lead the race because the feeling with the bike and tyres was perfect. Then when the tyres started to go off I first took some risks to maintain my position but then I decided not to take any further risks and to bring it home in third place.”

Hayden said, “Well that’s another fifth place which isn’t great obviously. Lap one was pretty wild and luckily in the first couple of corners I made up a lot of positions because my start was a bit of a disaster – that was the worst part of the race for me. Luckily that first lap turned out as good as it did because otherwise the result could have been much worse. I tried to come through the pack but it’s hard – you’re coming past fast guys and in this class it’s really tough. Luckily we’ve got a couple of days here to test now.”

Toni Elias (Fortuna Honda RC211V), who was sixth, said, “I’m happy with sixth place, even though I was hoping for better. I started well and tried to go with the leading group but it wasn’t possible because they had a pace that was a couple of tenths quicker than I was capable of. I got involved in the second group with Gibernau, Hayden and Nakano, focused on my rhythm and pushed as hard as I could, even though I was missing a little rear traction. Now I am looking forward to Portugal because we have taken another step forward here.”

Dani Pedrosa (Repsol Honda RC211V) finished seventh, and said, “My race didn’t go well at the beginning. In the first left-hander Elias made a mistake, I was just behind and I couldn’t avoid him so I went off track. Everybody passed me, I was near the back of the field and I was making mistakes trying to pass people. My race pace was quite good but the problem was we didn’t manage to get this pace early in the practice sessions this weekend. I’m happy to have won the Rookie of the Year though because I got it in the 125cc and 250cc classes, so it’s nice to get it also in MotoGP.”

Ninth-placed finisher Kenny Roberts (Roberts KR211V) said, “Felt great this morning. Seems like when I get out on my own and get in my own rhythm and I don’t have to slam the brakes on or really accelerate hard, I’m OK. But when I’ve got to start doing that I start getting sucked in and it feels like I’m going to run into the back of people. And when I get on the gas at the same time I just spin, so it’s like I keep a certain distance and then I’m OK. It’s like I’m riding just too much corner speed. And we’ve been trying to fix that. That was obviously one of the things we were trying – to get more rear grip so I can avoid doing that.”

“I’m really sorry for my home race result,” said tenth-placed Makoto Tamada (Konica Minolta Honda RC211V). “I was competitive at the start and I made up some positions during the first lap. The feeling with my bike was better than yesterday but not sufficient to turn with the necessary pace to stay with the leading group. It’s very sad for me to race like this but the worst thing is that I have not found the way to overcome this situation yet.”

A dejected Stoner said, “For two laps from the start the bike felt OK, and I was up to fourth place after passing Gibernau. Unfortunately in the morning warm-up the team decided to put an extra turn of preload on the front and it was fine with a full load of fuel. But as the fuel went down I had no feeling at the front, the rear was lifting under the brakes and I was running wide. I’m disappointed, because since free practice 3, we had the perfect set-up and we didn’t need to change anything. I wasn’t happy with the race, I should have been able to run low 1’47s, and I really have no explanation for the crash, I don’t know what I did wrong.”

Hiro Aoyama (KTM) won the 23-lap 250cc race from Alex de Angelis (Aprilia) with series points leader Jorge Lorenzo (Aprilia) third. Andrea Dovizioso (Humangest Racing Honda RS250RW) could only manage fourth place after leading the early laps.

De Angelis got the holeshot off the line but was passed by Dovi later in the opening lap with Yuki Takahashi (Humangest Racing Honda RS250RW) third, Aoyama in fourth and Lorenzo at this stage a distant fifth by 1.5 seconds. He drifted further back further to 2.02 seconds by mid-race.

But Dovi had lost control of the race by this stage too. The Italian title challenger dropped to fourth as first de Angelis and then Aoyama took control at the front. The KTM rider set a fastest lap of 1m 52.800s as he piled on the pressure on his pursuers. Takahashi had by now fallen while holding third place.

Hiro Aoyama and de Angelis were comfortably clear of Lorenzo and Dovizioso at the flag with Roberto Locatelli in fifth and Shuhei Aoyama (Repsol Honda RS250RW) sixth. David de Gea, standing in for the injured Martin Cardenas, (Repsol Honda RS250RW) also fell without injury.

Dovi said, “This is bad luck. Yuki crashed out in front of me and I lost ground to Aoyama; he had a good rhythm and I wasn’t able to catch him afterwards. And at the end, also Lorenzo got close to me as his Aprilia was faster. I was losing on the straights and so I tried to attack in the braking points. Here it was important to gain points but we have lost them instead; 27 points is a big gap with only two races remaining. Yuki and I didn’t set any strategy as I think that it is right that both riders ride their own race and I want to win by myself without any help.”

“I’m very disappointed,” said Aoyama. “I made a good start, but as the first lap went by I lost several positions. The other riders managed to outbrake me in the corners and there was nothing I could do, then I would pass them back and wanted to push, but it was very difficult, the lap times were very similar. As the race went by the grip of the tyres was better and I was able to improve my times, but so did the others. I don't really know the reason – but it’s sad.”

Takahashi said, “In the turn I crashed out and had suffered some problems in the previous laps too. I fell off because in the middle of the turn, when I shifted down, the engine was too powerful and I couldn’t avoid the crash. I’m really disappointed because this race was important for me in front of my supporters and also because I compromised Andrea’s result.”

Ratthapark Wilairot of the Thai Honda Castrol Endurance Team finished a creditable 10th. He said, “My aim was to finish within top five so I couldn't achieve this goal but I am satisfied with the result. My start was not so bad but I couldn’t improve my pace. The second half was a fight under pressure to keep the position. I really enjoyed taking part in the race and want to thank Honda, Bridgestone, and all the other sponsors.”

The World Championship points table now shows Lorenzo leading with 265 points to Dovi’s 238 with de Angelis third on 187 points. Aprilia heads the Constructors’ Championship with 316 points to Honda’s 255.

Mika Kallio (KTM) won the 125cc race from Alvaro Bautista (Aprilia), denying the newly crowned World Champion an eighth victory of the season. Hector Faubel (Aprilia) was third.

The 2005 World Champion Thomas Luthi (Elit Grand Prix Honda RS125R) fell on lap four of this 21-lap race while lying in 11th place leaving a four-rider pack, which included Lukas Pesek (Derbi) in fourth, to fight for the win in the closing stages.

Bautista and Kallio had then left Faubel six seconds behind as the final laps unfolded and it was Kallio who overhauled the Spanish World Champion to take the win on the final lap.
Bradley Smith (Repsol Honda RS125R) rode a fine race to finish in eighth place. This is the first top ten of the rookie British rider’s season and he also finished as first Honda.

Luthi said, “The crash was my mistake – I made a small mistake before the start/finish straight and lost contact with the group. Even before the crash I knew I had problems. It’s important to stay in the slipstream here but once I lost that I was in trouble. That meant I had to be really hard with the brakes but I lost the font-end real quick and could not save it, then the back-end went and I crashed with Di Meglio – it was my mistake.”

Smith said, “It’s definitely been better than expected. With a ninth position start it’s been very good for me. I know how to crack on in the first three laps, but I sat and watched the group in front. But after Di Meglio and Luthi went down I knew that I had to go with the group because they had already broken away. I pushed and I pushed and I caught Koyama and I brought Koyama to Talmacsi and I passed him. I was trying a 120% to get away but it just wasn’t to be.”

Bautista has already secured the Riders’ title for 2006 with a 300 point haul, Kallio lies second on 226 points while Mattia Pasini (Aprilia) has 185 points. Aprilia leads the Constructors’ Championship with 323 points to KTM’s 231 with Honda third on 153 points.

Marco Melandri, Fortuna Honda: 3rd:
“It’s nice to be on the podium at Honda’s home race and I’m happy to have given them the Constructors' title. Today the pace set by Loris was extremely fast but the balance of my bike was also good and the tyres worked really well. After a tough warm-up, when we struggled a little to get the right feeling with a harder rear tyre, I went for slightly softer rubber for the race.

Then when the tyres started to go off I first took some risks to maintain my position but then I decided not to take any further risks and to bring it home in third place. I’m enjoying myself at the moment and now we’re going to two tracks I like. I just have to focus on having fun and giving it my best shot every Sunday.”

Nicky Hayden, Repsol Honda: 5th:
“Well that’s another 5th place which isn’t great obviously. Lap one was pretty wild and luckily in the first couple of corners I made up a lot of positions because my start was a bit of a disaster – that was the worst part of the race for me. Luckily that first lap turned out as good as it did because otherwise the result could have been much worse. I actually got hit by another rider on the first lap and bent the clutch lever up which didn’t help. I tried to come through the pack but it’s hard – you’re coming past fast guys and in this class it’s really tough. Towards the end I started closing, closing, closing on Nakano and Gibernau and then I made a little mistake in Turn 5 and they picked up the pace too. Actually my bike worked pretty good today, and the Michelins did too. My rhythm wasn’t bad - I was much faster than I was able to go here last year – and I guess that’s one positive thing to come out of today. And luckily we’ve got a couple of days here to test to see if we can sort it out.”

Toni Elias, Fortuna Honda: 6th:
“I’m happy with sixth place, even though I was hoping for better. I started well and tried to go with the leading group but it wasn’t possible because they had a pace that was a couple of tenths quicker than I was capable of. I got involved in the second group with Gibernau, Hayden and Nakano, focused on my rhythm and pushed as hard as I could, even though I was missing a little rear traction. Now I am looking forward to Portugal because we have taken another step forward here.”

Dani Pedrosa, Repsol Honda: 7th:
“My race was didn’t go well at the beginning. In the first left hander Elias made a mistake, I was just behind and I couldn’t avoid him so I went off the track. Everybody passed me and I was near the back of the field which made it really difficult and I was making mistakes trying to pass people. After that the leading group had gained a big lead, and anyway I was not as fast as them today. But I tried to recover as much as possible and I finished seventh, which is not such a good result for me this season. My race pace was quite good but the problem was that we didn’t manage to get this pace early in the practice sessions this weekend. I’m happy to have won the Rookie of the Year though because I got it in the 125cc and 250cc classes, so it’s nice to get it also in MotoGP.”

Kenny Roberts Jnr, KR Honda: 9th:
“Felt great this morning. Seems like when I get out on my own and get in my own rhythm and I don’t have to slam the brakes on or really accelerate hard, I’m OK. But when I’ve got to start doing that I start getting sucked in and it feels like I’m going to run in the back of people.

That was obviously one of the things we were trying to get rear grip out of it so I can avoid doing that.

Team Owner Kenny Roberts:
“It just wasn’t there all weekend. This is the new chassis. Again, we have very little time, very little experience with it. It could very well be two, three-tenths off; we don’t know that. In the morning warm-up it was fine and then the race gets hotter. These are just things you learn. Everybody’s so damn close. It doesn’t take much to tune yourself out of a half a second a lap. We’ve always had a stopping problem and that’s really an area where we want to work that’s largely a suspension and maybe a little bit of aerodynamic work to make it stop better. It’s always stopping on its nose and moving; you can’t really out-stop anybody. That’s a problem we’ve had since we started the project.

Makoto Tamada, Konica Minolta Honda: 10th:
“I am really sorry for my home race result. I was competitive at the start only; I made up some positions during the first lap. The feeling with my bike was better than yesterday but not sufficient to turn with the necessary pace to stay with the leading group. It is very sad for me to race like this but the worst thing is that I have not found the way to overcome this situation yet.”

Casey Stoner, LCR Honda: dnf – crash:

Fabrizio Perren, Stop and Go Racing: 15th:
“I am a little disappointed because I raced so hard today. My start was good and the bike was running really well, if it was not for the fast local wild cards I would have been in a better position. In the closing stages I was racing ahead of Baldolini but last lap I got into a big slide at the chicane and he passed me. I just did not have time to try and re-pass him.”

Arturo Tizon, Wurth Honda BQR: 21st:
“I got a very good start but at the first corner I got boxed in and 24th at the end of the first lap. I tried to get to the group of riders ahead of me but I could not. The bike was good and the only problem I had was with the front brake, it faded towards the finish. Not a good day, I didn’t score any points.”

Yuki Takahashi, Humangest Honda: dnf – crash:
“In the turn I crashed out I suffered some problems also in the previous laps; I fell off because in the middle of the turn, when I shifted down, the engine was too powerful and I couldn’t avoid the crash. I’m really disappointed because this race was important for me in front of my supporters and also because I compromised Andrea’s result.”

David de Gea, replacement rider for Martin Cardenas, Repsol Honda: dnf – crash.:
“I made a good start, but I kind of pushed too hard in the first lap and wasn’t able to avoid the strong braking in the rear part of the circuit, the second gear corner. I went on the brakes and when the tyre came back onto the ground the bike just destabilised and I wasn’t able to regain control. I tried to stop it but Ballerini was right in front of me and I just couldn’t avoid touching him, that’s when I crashed. I’m physically OK, nothing serious.”

Aleix Espargaro, Wurth Honda BQR: dnf – brake problems.

“I got a good start but at the first corner I was in trouble with the brakes and I ran wide. From then it was always going to be hard for me. In the warm up we used up a set of rear brake pads and Nissin gave us a harder compound to use in the race but they were not good and I just could not get the bike stopped, so I had to stop.”

Arnaud Vincent, Molenaar Honda: dnf – technical problem.


125cc:

Bradley Smith, Repsol Honda: 8th:
“It’s definitely been better than expected. With a ninth position start it’s been very good for me. I know how to crack on in the first three laps, but I didn’t really, I sat and watched the group in front but after Di Meglio and Luthi went down I knew that I had to go with the group because they had already broken away. I pushed and I pushed and I caught Koyama and I brought Koyama to Talmaczi and I passed him. I was trying a 120% to get away but it just weren’t to be. It’s so difficult leading from the front without a slipstream they can always stay in the area, never pass you, just stay there. I tried to break away for about twelve laps. I’m pretty tired now but over the moon with the result.”

Gabor Talmacsi, Humangest Honda: 9th:
“After this morning’s warm up I was confident for the race as we have found a better set-up of the bike compared to the practice. But, during the race I had the same problems with the front as in the practice sessions and so I made too many mistakes. Anyway, I did my best and at two laps to go I couldn’t recover any further positions”.

Fabrizio Lai, Seedorf Racing World: 11th:
“This morning I felt a marble statue. Then I recovered slowly, helped by the doctors of the Clinica Mobile and so I tried to come up my bike: the pain was incredible but I have decided to take the start. During the race,the bike seemed to be very heavy and I wasn’t able to ride it: I lost positions until the twentieth. But, after ten laps, I began to feel better because the bike was lighter with less gasoline. So I set my teeth and advanced one position after another. At the end it’s notso bad: sincerely I didn’t think to be able to finish the race, indeed I’m eleventh too.”

Tito Rabat, Wurth Honda BQR: 12th:
“I got a good start and could follow Olive and Terol. but Terol went away from us. Later I passed Olive and got away from him. and was racing with Lai. And we passed each other a few times but on the last lap he passed me again and I could not get passed him again. A good fun race but I really wanted to beat Lai. My team gave me a good bike and I thank them very much. The engine was strong and the chassis very good.”

Hiromi Iwata, Plus One Honda: 27th:
“I was going OK for the first lap but after that my lap times didn’t improve. I couldn’t shift down well and went out of the track. I couldn’t improve my position till the finish. My machine was slower than the others and I was slow at the corners. Because I wasn’t doing well, my determination went down as well. I have to use the experience I gained during this weekend to the All Japan Championship races.

Michele Conti, Seedorf Racing World: 28th:

“I was not able to learn this track with its narrow corners. So we tried to use the large rear tyre in the race (the bike is easier to drive) but the situation isn’t changed: I was in a group of faster Aprilia and I was not able to overtaken them.”

Joey Litjens, Molenaar Honda: 29th:
“That was a really painful race for me my back is very sore. 21- laps round here has left me completely exhausted but I finished. Everything about the bike was good – the only problem was the pain in my back.”

Toshihisa Kuzuhara, S-Way Honda: 30th:
“I am very tired but I really enjoyed the weekend. I was following one rider and then he let me go in front. But when I got in front of him, I lost my rhythm. It was a good experience for me and was a good practice for my All Japan races.”

Iori Namihira, Honda Suzuka Racing: 31st:
“This morning’s warm-up was a little better than before. During the race, it was a fight among three riders and I tried to get in front but failed. Although my result is not so good, I learnt a lot from them and I will try my best to get on the podium regularly for the All Japan championship races.”

Thomas Luthi, Elit Honda: dnf – crash.
“The crash was my mistake – I made a small mistake before the start finish straight and lost contact with the group. Even before the crash I knew I had problems its important to stay in the slipstream here but once I lost the slipstream I was in trouble. That meant I had to be really hard with the brakes but I lost the font end real quickly and could not save it, then the back end went and I crashed with Di Meglio – it was my mistake.”

Kazuma Watanabe, Humangest Honda: dnf :
“I was doing a pretty good race improving lap by lap even though my rhythm wasn’t enough good to recover more positions. Anyway, the bike was working good and for this I want to thank the team for the chance they have given to me and for working very hard during this weekend. In the last lap I high-sided and lost the control of the bike so I crashed out, luckily I got a light contusion on my right ankle; I’m very sorry for the mistake I made.”

Mike Di Meglio, FFM Honda: dnf – crash.
