週末を通して、抱えていた問題を解決できず苦しい展開となってしまった。持っている力のすべてを出し切ったが、11位という結果にとても残念だ。でも、この結果は真に受け止めたいと思う。僕たちはこのあとすぐにスペイン ヘレスサーキットに向かいテストを行うので、来年に向けてしっかりとテストをしたい。

Moto2 class race got off to a rough start with a multiple rider crash occurring on the opening lap at turn 2, resulting in the race being red flagged. The Race was planed with 27 laps, however after the restart the remaining number of the laps changed to 18 laps.

Making good restart from 3rd row 8th position on the grid, IDEMITSU Honda Team Asia rider Takaaki Nakagami entered the first corner in 7th position but at 3rd lap he dropped down to 13th. Despite the gap between Nakagami and the rider in front of him widened almost 2seconds, he never gave up and continued to push. Nakagami regained his pace from 9th lap gaining 1 position before dropping down 2 positions at 15th lap. However, with his persistent riding, he crossed the finish line in 11th position gaining 2 positions on the last lap. He concluded 2015 season in 8th position in world standing with 100 points.

Teammate Azlan Shah Kamaruzaman forced to cancel the race because of the injured caused by a crash yesterday. Despite he concluded the season 2015 regrettable, he earned 24 points finishing 23rd position in world standing.

We would like to express our heartfelt thanks to all fans, IDEMITSU Kosan Co.,Ltd and all sponsors who gave big support to us.

2015 season finished almost too soon. I’m most grateful that we could concluded the season now, despite Azlan having to miss out the race due to his injuries. Thanks to big support from all fans, IDEMITSU Kosan Co.,Ltd, all sponsors and Honda Motor Co.,Ltd.
About today’s race, the big gap with rivals at first half of the race influenced his result. I’m really disappointed that he finished in 11th position despite catching up with a few riders on the last lap. The 2016 season has just started now when the final race had took the checkered flag. Now we move to Jerez for 3 days of testing, we try to have good result in order that we aim to battle for the podium and world champion next season.

It was very hard weekend for me, because I struggled to find the solution to resolve the problems. I put all my potential I have to get higher position, but I’m so disappointed to finish in 11th position and I have to accept today’s result seriously, and take action towards next season. We move soon to Jerez Circuit (Spain) for the private test, so I try to consume all test programs!

I’m disappointed that I couldn’t fight in the last race of the season and I’m so sorry to team. But I’m really happy that I could ride in this team for last 2 years. I want to express my pleasure to the team, sponsor and all fans who supported me. Thank you very much!
