“Phillip Island circuit is a very nice place to ride. Our main rival for the title at this moment, Alex Rins, is very strong there and won last year, so he can be up there again in Australia. I want to understand how to be very fast at this track, because in the past I have not been quick enough to get on the Moto2 podium. If we get into the Top 3 it would be perfect, but if not we must be smart and –if we can– finish ahead of Rins. That would be a good result.”
