(cafetheology.org) – With Takumi Takahashi, the Honda WSBK team from Ronald ten Kate presents the third substitute driver for Nicky Hayden on the weekend. After Jake Gagne and Davide Giugliano took the second Honda, Takahashi drives the Fireblade in Portimao to help Honda improve the WSBK bike. Stefan Bradl is also looking forward to Takahashi's feedback. One can be curious how well the Japanese team works with the Dutch team. The English-speaking driver of the HRC test is extremely limited.Honda-Europa-Manager Marco Chini is nevertheless convinced that the longtime Honda test driver will be a great help: "We are very glad that Takumi is driving for us He is an HRC driver, and he knows what he is doing in the Superbike World Championship, and what feedback he gives to the motorcycle, "Chini says, referring to 'WorldSBK.com'" Takumi is the driver who has the most experience with the Fireblade "Chini said that Takahashi can not compete for all four outstanding race weekends.

"At the end of the race weekend, Davide Giugliano will be heading for Takumi Takahashi when the events collide with those of the Japanese Championship," Chini said. Does not the constant replacement of drivers stop the development? "All drivers are extremely important to the development, and we get more information through the different driving styles," says Chini. "The current season has not been going according to schedule for Honda. The ten-Kate crew would be keen to keep the year off and focus on 2018. "It has been a very difficult season for us for a number of reasons, and because of the closer ties with Japan, we are able to define our position more precisely and plan the next steps," Chini says confidently.More HRC support should also encourage Stefan Bradl to work with the Ten-Kate crew. So far no contract has been agreed. "At the moment, we are still talking, there are no decisions, but they will be met soon, I think," Chini said.
