Schrötter leaves Sepang with a point

The Malaysian Grand Prix was not very pleasant, because of the heat and humidity in Sepang and it was very difficult for Marcel Schrötter and the Interwetten Honda 125 Team, but it was worth it as Schrötter is going home with another point. The 17 year old was on 14th position crossing the finish line, but a photo finish declared him 15th.

Marcel Schrötter, 15 - 41'23.670:
"This was a very difficult race for me, but I had a good start. After the start I was in the middle of a group and this was holding me off. I was able to fight my way through and I tried to catch up as many places as possible. At the first straight I didn't have a chance anymore and the other riders opened a gap. I couldn't see anything as I was sweating. I defiantly think that I finished on 14th position."

Terrell Thien, Team Manager:
"Again Marcel gained a point, also we think it should have been two points. I am glad that Marcel is improving step by step and I am looking forward to the next race."
