"It is great to be in the Rookies Cup and to learn so much, there are so many fast riders here and we get to go to the best tracks. I know that I have to learn a lot and I want to do that every time I get on the bike. By the end of the year I hope to be running in the top 8."
"In the winter I got ready for the season by working-out in the gym as much as I could, in the holidays from school I could spend almost all day in there. The first time I had the chance to get on the bike was at the pre-season test in Estoril."
"It was good that the second test was at Jerez, it is the only Rookies track that I have been to before so I knew it a little. All the other tracks are new to me and it will be very interesting to learn them all. That is the great thing about the Cup, going to so many great GP tracks."
"I want to learn a lot from the Cup and then go into Grand Prix. I watch the top guys and my heroes are Rossi, Capirossi, Kallio and Pasini, it is a real dream to try and follow them."
