Edwards getting more confident
11 September 2007 – Colin Edwards had one of his best weekends of 2006 at Estoril, finishing just off the podium in fourth place. The Texan qualified second on the grid and crossed the line less than a second behind the race winner - a performance he would love to have the opportunity to repeat this time around.
"Misano was another bad day at the office but we learnt a lot at the test on Monday and I think it was really the most positive one we've had all year," said Edwards. "We really seemed to get onto something with Michelin and I think everyone felt that we were finally making some good steps forward. We've got a lot of work to do and it's not going to change overnight but I think we're all feeling a lot more confident for the next race than we did after the Brno test.
"There's only five races left and the championship hasn't panned out for myself or Valentino like we hoped, but we've got a great team and everyone will keep working as hard as they can to give us all something to be happy about over the final races. I'm determined to turn things around in Estoril, I had a good race last year and only just missed out on the podium and I'll be looking to make up for that this time around."
