Rumours are rumours - there are so many going around. I've read that we were going to World Superbikes next year. It happens every year, but until the budgets are in place then nobody is going anywhere. Rizla Suzuki, Suzuki GB, Tom, myself and the team would like nothing more than to go to World Superbikes, but we would go with a mission. We would have a plan in place to take us into a position in two or three years time that we are challenging for the championship.
How different is it in working in the World Superbike paddock when you're working space is half the size?
I am just pleased they found us a garage! It is a one-rider team so we just adapt to suit that. We have been used to working out the back of a van in our earlier careers, so we can adapt but we would like the space that we would normally get. I didn't affect us at Brands Hatch, so I don't expect it to affect us at Donington.
Have you had any requests from the Alstare Suzuki team to slow down and stop showing them up?
No, we get on well with them! Everybody wants to win, so we just get on with the business and the best rider and team will get the best results in the end. There is no back-biting that's for sure. We share data in the sense that we send it back to the factory, so I guess it is shared in that way. We work within the Suzuki race department and that's where it can be tapped into.
