In an interview, here is what the KTM rider had to say. “With MotoGP at the minute, you don’t know whether you’re coming or going. You might be fighting for a podium one weekend but be two seconds off at the end of the race whilst fighting for fifth or sixth place. So, MotoGP at the minute is so tight and so competitive, it’s just as thrilling for us, the riders, as it is for the fans watching on TV, at the moment,” he said.

“The only thing I worry about is podiums and winning races so that’s my goal, that’s what I’m there to do,” he continued. “If you look at the bigger picture and how we had some really tough times last season. To finish sixth in the championship is great but by no means where I want to be. I want to be fighting with the guys all the time and I’m here to fight for the title,” he concluded.
