“The first weekend of the season was very positive. I had fun and I tasted again the feeling of victory, but the most important thing is that we were always fast and consistent. We arrive at Assen with great ambitions, obviously. The TT is a circuit I like a lot, although we may have surprises in terms of weather conditions. It’s a very nice and smooth track, I hope I will be as confident as I was three years ago. We’ll try to get the best from each race”.
