Pole position for the final race of the season at Magny Cours
October 6th, 2012
We’ve been on the pace all weekend, since yesterday morning we found a good compromise with the bike, it feels really good. In the qualifier we did a bit of a long run and the tyre seemed pretty good and held up quite well and it’s a track I really like so I’m looking forward to tomorrow, its the last race with the team and it could be the last race here in the world championship so I have nothing to lose. Conditions could be wet, the forecast is for rain and we’ll see what happens, if its wet in the morning warm up we’ll get out and do some laps and try to be as fast as possible in the rain cos if its wet in the race we need to be quick straight away. Its good to be on pole but most importantly I want to try to win the race tomorrow for myself and the team. Click here for the full video.

Final round of the championship in Magny Cours this weekend
October 6th, 2012
I have always had good results at Magny-Cours and I like the track so I am hoping to finish the year pretty strong. The weather looks good at the moment so fingers crossed we should be OK. I am not sure why it has always been a good track for me, but some tracks you go to it is easy and others it is hard. It is one I have always been able to get around pretty quickly. It is a very technical track and one of these where you can have good close racing. The championship win got decided last time out so I am sure all the WSS guys are just going to be trying for the win this weekend. The top five is pretty much sorted out now so our own aim this weekend is to win the race.

Portimao race starts in tricky conditions and ends in 4th position
September 23rd, 2012
It was tricky at the start because of the rain in the morning and some huge thunderstorms, no one expected that before the race. I was lucky I was on pole so I got off the line good and lead the first couple of laps, there was a couple of wet patches but we just made our way around them. There was something going on with the bike at the start of the race, something electronic with the traction control or something, it sort of mucked up my rhythym a little bit and then we had a really good battle all race with the top guys, going at each other all the time, missing breaking points and running a bit wide. It was an enjoyable race but unfortunately I missed the podium and ended up 4th. It was a much better 4th than the last race because I was there in the fight. To be honest we were lacking a bit of power in the straight, this season its been difficult and today it was quite obvious because its quite a big straight. There's only one more race to go this year at a little bit less of a horsepower track, its a good track for me, hopefully we can try and get that win. Click here to watch the full video.
