Tyre problems and fastest lap in the race at Imola
April 1st, 2012
Well the Imola race has finished, its been a really bad day. We put in exactly the same tyre we used this morning which was quickest in warm-up, went out in the race and done 5 laps and we were just going backwards, the tyre was just completely destroyed. It’s just really frustrating to have these issues two races in a row, and again here there’s just nothing you can do. I came in the pits and put in a new tyre – exactly the same tyre again and then on the track put in a lap record, fastest lap of the race and really consistent times. Its very frustrating and it’s not good for the championship – it’s only early days we still got 10 rounds to go, so just got to look forward now to Assen. We got a test at Assen which will be our first test for the year so I’m really looking forward to that to get the bike dialled in a little bit more but at the moment I don’t think that’s the biggest issue – Pirelli just really needs to work out what’s going on with their tyre and hopefully it doesn’t happen to everyone else, see you in Assen.

5th in qualifying at Imola for the first European World Supersport round of 2012
March 31st, 2012
Here we are at Imola for the first European round. Just finished qualifying and ended up 5th on the grid. You know I was hoping for a little bit better than that, we’ve been better than that all weekend. There were a few dramas during the session, one of the guys sort of crashed at the end and they red-flagged it. I went out on new tyres and put in a lap time and at that stage we were 2nd in the session but the tyre just had no grip from the start, just a bad tyre and we were unable to improve the lap time so we ended up 5th on the grid. I’m quite confident for the race tomorrow, the race bike and team set up seems quite good. There are 5 or 6 guys in the battle and I’m looking forward to it so bring on tomorrow and lets see what we can do! Click here to watch the video

Podium in the first race of the year at Philip Isalnd
February 26th, 2012

I did not get a good start, but I was not too concerned about it. I did not attack well enough in the first six or seven laps. So I left my charge a bit too late. I was really concerned about my rear tyre, maybe a little bit too much. It was still torn quite a bit at the end. I just could not do any more and had to take the points today. I lost a gap early on and tried to close the gap at the end, but my grip was going quite quick at the end. A top three in the first race is quite good all the same.
