No, they gave me my start in racing. I was never a bankrolled rider and couldn't afford to go the BSB route and Red Bull had the rookies team back in 2003 and gave me the opportunity which started me in the sport.
In race one in Silverstone 2012 where you slid on your side past the finish, James Whitham thought that you continued holding the bars of the sliding bike to stop it flipping, is that true?
Do you know what, I have no idea, but it wasn't exactly that. I don't know what was going through my head at the time, though holding onto the bike has got me out of a number of pickles in the past. I think it's just a natural rider's reaction
Thanks a lot Jonathan.
