Monster Yamaha's James Toseland has said a catastrophic lack of grid meant he could do nothing but finishing last in yesterday's Sepang MotoGP race, almost two minutes behind winner Casey Stoner.
Toseland reckons he had no traction from the rear tyre and in the soaking conditions, he couldn't carry any corner speed which is key to a good lap in the wet.
“I wasn't too sorry when I saw the rain to be honest because it had been a tough weekend in the dry. We went with the base wet setting but I had the same problem in the rain that I did in the dry," said the Yorkshireman.
"I just didn't have any grip on the rear and in the wet the problem was on corner entry to the apex. So my corner speed was just way too slow to make a decent lap time. I am not out there just riding around at the back.
"I was doing my absolute best and trying my hardest but it was impossible for me to go any faster with the feeling I had. It has been a tough weekend but I'll look to bounce back and finish strongly in Valencia.”
