Even though, the 30-year old rider did not have a perfect start but he was confident of his winning capability. “I feel good with my machine but it was not a stroll in a park for me. It was a thinking and planning game as I need to observe where are my rivals namely Zamri and Azlan weak points and when I can make my maneuvering move,” said the defending Champion who believes that the 2011 title chase is not a mission impossible task.
He went on to express, “I am absolutely glad to be back in my winning ways and I hope it will not just stop here. I am looking forward for the coming race that will be held in Japan next month.”
