Gary Reynders mentioned that he felt I was approaching it with a calm head on my shoulders, working through problems methodically and getting there in the end, rather than costing the team a couple of hundred thousand pounds worth of damage.
How are you surviving in the MotoGP paddock?
It's actually a lot more welcoming than it looks from the outside. I already knew some of the guys, but people have been very friendly. At the briefing at Qatar Jorge came straight over and said 'Hello'. It's a bit like BSB but with a language barrier and a bit more Spanish.
I'm also enjoying the travel of it, seeing new cultures and meeting new people.
Is it you or Eugene that your brother John is traveling with?
That's Eugene. John will come to some of my races, but he's currently acting as manager and right-hand man for Eugene.
When John had his BSB accident in 2011 he broke the majority of bones in his body and he made the decision to step away from racing for this year and Eugene needed someone. Having a manager who Eugene can be absolutely sure has his best interests at heart is good for him.
He's also training as an osteopath so he can help at races. His recovery gave him an insight into that.
Thanks Michael and good luck.
