text size: A- A+
The Gresini Honda team has already announced that its two riders for next season will be Marco Melandri and Marco Simoncelli, thus leaving the San Marino rider without a team.
De Angelis confirmed he is talking with other teams in order to secure a place in the MotoGP series. "I don't know what I will do next year," de Angelis told Italia1 television.
"We've spoken with so many teams: the conditions exist but are very complicated, so I think understanding what's the right solution is still a long way away. There's no point hiding, however, that I'd like to stay in MotoGP," continued de Angelis.
"It's a great satisfaction. I started not very well and lost a lot of time with Edwards at the beginning. Then I overtook him, went with my pace, and saw the others were struggling. I tried not to make mistakes and to push.
It was a difficult and complex race, however it's great. Valentino crashed and I'm sorry for him, but he's given back to me what he snatched from me by a whisker," explained the rider from San Marino his Indy performance.
"I come from five positive races, I've always improved and we've found the ideal set-up for this bike. We struggled a lot at the beginning [of the season] but I've never stopped believing in myself - and the same goes for the guys working with me. So with this result I want to thank them because at difficult times you can feel who really is with you and who isn't," concluded Alex de Angelis.
