I've certainly learnt from my mistakes and I'm the first person to admit I've tried too hard and overstepped the mark on several occasions and have paid the price.
I'll make no excuses because I will always push for a result and put in that extra effort. I finished seventh in the World Championship and finished on the podium three times and next year I will be looking for a lot more before stepping up to MotoGP in 2013.
Luckily for everybody in the Smith family at home I will not have to wait too long before testing the new bike with three days scheduled at the end of November in Jerez. It is about as far south as you can go in Europe and so surely the rain will stay away.
Before then I will be up at MotorCycle live at the NEC in Birmingham on the opening and closing days and so hope to see you there.
Rain is still pouring down, but I going out with my Tech 3 team for a big end of season meal tonight which will lift the spirits. They have been fantastic to work with. Thank-you to them and to all of you for your support this season which has been truly amazing.
My thanks to you all will come with the effort and focus I will put in to bring you the results next season that your support deserves.
