"This is an exciting year in MotoGP and I can now look forward to rounding it off by taking on the world's best drivers at the Race Of Champions.

We'll both do our best to remind them that bikers can race on four wheels too.

"I hope the public enjoy it and have fun with all of us. Now all that's left is for me to work hard over the rest of the MotoGP season to come to London as a triple world champion rather than a double world champion!"
