"There are always things that can be improved. Things that today you think are impossible to change are reality in a few years. While there is the desire to go forward and develop the bike, the ideas do not stop. You can always improve."
Later this month, you will return to Sepang for another three days. What is the scheduled workload?
"We need to improve some things with the engine; basically electronic aspects, which are important. We also have to keep working on testing durability, to check that everything is in place and reliable."
You shared a garage with new team-mate, Marc Márquez, at Sepang. How did he look to you on the MotoGP bike?
"I didn't share much track time with him - only two or three corners - but his style is really impressive. He hangs off the bike a lot and has achieved great times so far. When he was here in November, he was also very fast."
