‘I’m miss­ing a first place – but a podium would be great’

What are your re­sults go­ing to be?

There are a lot of guys look­ing strong this year, and sixth po­si­tion last year was ex­cep­tional. A re­al­is­tic tar­get is eighth. But I’d like to sneak an­other podium! There were a few op­por­tu­ni­ties last year – Cal in Ar­gentina, Petrucci in Sil­ver­stone, and me at Misano and nearly in Sepang, and I’d like to sneak an­other one! I’m not sure where yet though. I’m miss­ing a first place – but a podium would be great none­the­less.

Where are you go­ing to be in 2017?

Not in a Tech 3 garage. I think it’s clear what Yamaha’s am­bi­tions are within our team, and I think this’ll be my last year. Herve and Yamaha have their own pro­gramme in place to turn the team into a ju­nior team, a ju­nior feeder, and I’m 99% cer­tain I won’t be part of it.
