Q&A: Sebastian Porto.

I don't know what the others have done, but it's clear that the Honda has improved and is still a good bike. What is happening now, is that there's not only one Honda but many of them in the front. That will make the championship more hard-fought.

Q:
The next time we'll see you on the track will be at first race of the 2005 season, what are your expectations for the event?

Sebastian Porto:
I feel very well. This is my second year, I'm calm and I think that I have many chances to be fighting for the title. We must try to work well, following the line of last year and continue evolving the bike as we've been doing. If we keep this regularity, as we've been doing during the preseason, the championship will be easier for us. But we have to work on it and take it easy, because it's going to be a long, very long way.

I feel that I have big chances. This year will be different because, as I told you, we start with a larger experience. Last year I knew that I was getting a factory bike, a good bike, but I didn't really know what I was going to find. I had to adapt to it and deep in the inside I wasn't sure if I was going to make it. This year is different, I have the bike, the confidence and the experience.

Q:
What are your plans from now until the start of the season?

Sebastian Porto:
Well, I'm going to relax because it's been a very long and demanding pre-season. We've been lapping very fast on all of the circuits. But the season will be even tougher. I won't have time to travel to Argentina, so I'll stay around here to rest, looking forward to the first grand prix.
