For me, it was the best race of the year.
That was the best battle of the year!
It was a tough race with quite a few strong riders battling it out at the finish. It was not easy to overtake, but a few of them managed to do it.
For sure it is the ultimate challenge for me -- a crazy challenge.
It's a magic track for me.
It's a fantastic track and if the bike is okay it's a great pleasure to ride.
It has been an amazing season.
Everybody is very tired after the trip to Australia but it is always nice to visit a new country and we are all interested to see the new circuit in Turkey.
This was a fantastic first day for us, especially the afternoon.
I'm happy because the bike worked well. I was confident of a pole position but Nicky set a fantastic lap time ... and second position for tomorrow is not so bad.
I thought it was possible but then I decided it was too risky and after that I knew that the lap was gone and I had lost my advantage.
So, 11 victories is fantastic and always race in this track is different, is magic, ... I win a lot of times here, a lot of important races for my career and I love this track.
The work that we do during the winter is very important; we have a new bike and it's important to develop it during this time, and we start with this test.
To win the Championship in the first year will be hard. We need time to become competitive and win races.
We have the 2004 M1 here for reference, which is useful. It worked well here last year; we won the race and always did fast lap times so it will be interesting to compare it to the new bike and it will help us to understand which parts have improved.
I'm lucky because I don't feel too much pressure - it's only in the last hour before the race, and even then it's good, positive pressure.
Also, when I started racing he knew a lot of people and it was more easy for me to find the first bike, so I have a good chance for sure.
As for the level of spectacle of the two disciplines, I leave it to the people who watch the races to comment.
But I could also start F1 or rallying. I love rallying much more.
How do Ferrari know what I'm doing next year when I don't know what I'm doing next week?
I always enjoyed myself a lot in pre-school.
I don't like being famous - it is like a prison. And driving for Ferrari would make it far worse.
I have won on Honda and Yamaha so maybe it is interesting to win with a third team, Ducati, who are Italian.
I race to win. If I am on the bike or in a car it will always be the same.
I would have probably stolen cars - it would have given me the same adrenaline rush as racing.
