MotoGP Le Mans: 'I can find a tenth, not a second' - Edwards

Monster Yamaha's Colin Edwards has said he has no option but to be aggressive and ride the wheels off his YZR-M1 in tomorrow's Le Mans MotoGP encounter as there is no way he can find the second it would take in pure pace to catch poleman Casey Stoner.

The Texan is in seventh place on the grid and one place behind rookie team-mate Cal Crutchlow but is pragmatic in his attitiude when he says he knows where he is losing time but there is nothing he can do about it.

"I liked looking at the timesheets in Le Mans a lot better when the Yamaha used to be on the top. I honestly can't do anything on else with the package I've got. I know I'm riding really good and the set-up we found in Estoril that improved rear grip has been working fantastic here too," said Edwards.


"I could probably find a tenth or two but I definitely don't have another second hidden away. I know where I'm losing the time but there is nothing I can do about it. I can't change the bike to make it accelerate it any harder but that other bike is a really good package.

"The goal tomorrow will just to be aggressive in the first few laps and ride the wheels off it until I see the flag. That's really all I can do but this is the Team's home race and a huge event for Monster, so I'll be pushing my hardest for another top six.”
