"Scott Reading taught me to ride so it was so fantastic to be at the British Grand Prix last year to see him win his first Grand Prix, I was just over the moon, so happy and all his friends were there to see it."
"It is so great to be following him, racing Grand Prix bikes on Grand Prix tracks, my other heroes are Casey Stoner, Valentino Rossi, Danny Webb and Marco Simoncelli. I definitely want to be Grand Prix racing in a few years."
"I know I've got a lot to learn. One of the things I want to learn this year is to be able to talk to mechanics and technicians about the bike, actually to tell them there is a problem, not just say, 'it's OK'."
"I also have to learn all the tracks, it was a help that we started testing at Estoril because the bike was new but at least I knew which way the track went after the Selection Event last year. At home I enjoy a lot of different tracks, Mallory is good, fast and flowing, like Snetterton, also fast and flowing plus Oulton Park as I had my first win there."
