Penultimate round in Portimao
September 21st, 2012
I hope for a good one in Portimao, We did not really have the pace at the last race, but normally it is a good track for me. I just want to try and finish the last two races very strongly. Portimao is quite fast in places so you still need some real power from the engine and also a good set-up and if you can get that all working well you can be quick here. It is an awesome track to ride, one of the best in the world, because it is so different. The layout there is unique and a lot of fun.

4th place finish at Nurburgring lacking a little punch off the turns
September 9th, 2012
To be honest I'm quite dissappointed I wanted to be better today I got off to a good start, we were on the front row, I got off the line well, on the first lap I was third and for quite a few laps we were in third position and I was just pushing like hell to stay with the top guys and just lacking something, punch off the corners, and we just couldn't stay. Its quite dissappointing because I've had a couple of races were I could stay with those guys and we haven't been able to do it the last couple. I went back to fifth at one stage and for most of the race I was riding by myself just trying to find my limit and push and bring it home. Sam crashed, that put me up one more position and we ended up fouth. The championship is a bit difficult now, we've lost a few points.  Hopefully we can work on the bike and come back for the last two races and try and fight for that podium.  Click here to see the full video blog.

3rd on the grid at Nurburgring
September 8th, 2012
It went a lot better in the final qualifying. We were struggling quite a bit over the weekend, we've been there or thereabouts, we were quite far away yesterday but we made improvements on the bike. I missed the pole by 0.025 so its a good result, I wanted to be on the front row. Tomorrow's race is going to be tight, there are 4 or 5 guys that have got a good pace. The weather's been perfect here in Germany which is a bit of a surprise because normally we have a bit of rain and its quite cool but tomorrow is supposed to be warm and blue skies so we're looking forward to the race. I like this track, the bike seems to be working good over distance so bring on tomorrow and we'll see what we can do. Click here to see the full video blog.
