Set up problems in the MotoGP race at Silverstone
August 31st, 2014
Well just finished the MotoGP race here at Silverstone. Its been a pretty tough weekend, we struggled quite a bit during practice and qualifying and its probably been the hardest weekend for me this year, just no feeling from the front, so much movement from the front of the bike and so much chatter. We changed so many different things on the bike and to be honest its been like that for the last couple of races so it hasn't been an easy weekend. In the race we made some changes and tried to go forward, I had a better feelong in warm up but we still didn't arrive to the times, I didn't even have much of a battle with the guys I just tried to hang in there and put the best lap times I could together. At the end I started to catch Di Meglio and thought that I could pass him but I nearly highsided out of the last corner and I had to call it a day, there were no points on offer anyway. Misano is the next round, its one of my favourite circuits so hopefully we can go there and have better pace.

Crash ends Oschersleben 8hr race after charge to the front and fastest lap
August 23rd, 2014
Well unfortunately we crashed out at Oschersleben, it was on my second stint I was going quite quick and actually feeling pretty good on the bike. I haven't really had a good feeling with the front tyre all weekend, we tried to fix the bike, we changed quite a bit. I was trying to catch the front two, I caught GMT94 and overtook Checa and it was only a lap later I tried to go on the inside of a lapped rider, I passed him, he was out wide, I went into the corner on the dirty part of the track, probably the fastest corner on the track and I lost the front. The bike was too badly damaged to continue and I'm just sorry to the team and my teammate Michael (Laverty) because we had a guaranteed podium position. Thats racing sometimes.

3rd place qualifying at the Oschersleben round of the World Endurance Championship
August 22nd, 2014
We had a lot of traffic and it was difficult to make a clear lap. The qualifying tyre was only good for one or two laps and we didn't use it to get the benefit I expected. We've been struggling a little this year as we changed the tyre and we have to set the bike up different, we tried a lot of things today and went the wrong way so we'll go back to yesterday's setting and I think we can be strong for the race.
