Best WSB mo­ment: Spa in 1992. Dic­ing with six or seven rid­ers and then pass­ing Doug Polen in a fifth gear cor­ner after the bus stop on the last lap, and took the win. Worst WSB mo­ment: Get­ting the boot from Kawasaki at the end of that (1992) sea­son. And then not tak­ing Ray­mond Roche’s seat at Du­cati, which was then taken by some English bloke called Fog­a­rty.

On WSB now: Cur­rently, I think that there too many pi­rates run­ning the teams. It is a shame be­cause nat­u­ral tal­ent doesn’t al­ways have the money to bring. And, tech­ni­cally, the bikes are not like (as stan­dard) they used to be.
