“I am really happy and excited to race again in ESBK this year. This is going to be my fourth year with JEG, so I definitely the good side and the bad side of the team, so I guess it will depend on how I can make myself adapt to it. I also have finished two races with the team at EWC, and I was able to show my potentials at the last round at Sepang. I will need to concentrate on making that potential into results, and if that happens, we will be able to achieve good results. I hope you will continue to support me this season.”
