“2015 is going to see Rodolfo and I try and win our respective categories, so this season is really going to be all about targeting the top step of the podium for us. We are going to be trying everything we can for the team so lets see what happens. It seems the timing is right, the team is good, I’m as fit as I’ve ever been, Minal has been a great engineer and the mechanics are on the same page. The team boss Terence is a cool guy as well so should be cool! I want to remain positive and say I don’t see why 2015 cannot be our year.”
