Yeah, absolutely, I don't get any enjoyment from just riding around and not winning. Brands Hatch was a killer - we knew it was going to be tough with the bad weather over the weekend and all the wild-card riders taking part, so second place in race one was like a win for me. It wasn't the best weekend, but it was a step closer to winning the title.
You only need ten points for the title - do you aim to win it by playing safe or going all out to get the 25 points for winning the race?
Going all out for the win is the plan but, if that doesn't work and I get eleven points for fifth place, then I'll say that I had it planned all along!
There are all sorts of rumours flying around at the moment - have you had any more thoughts on your future?
It's a strange situation - nothing has changed recently. At the moment, although nothing has been decided, it's looking like MotoGP but, in any case, I'm really excited about the future and about being on the grid next year with a Ducati!
