When we have a family, we don’t think about tomorrow, we think about the long term. You cannot think from day to day.

The reflection also happens more deeply on its environment: ” an Italian team is very different from a Japanese team. Honestly, I’ve always had a great relationship with the Japanese team, because I love the food, the culture, the places and how they are, so calm and systematic. It does the same to you. In addition, I needed a little more fire around me. A little more support on and off the bike. Finally I want to show many things and it was hard to do it there “.

In Noale’s factory team he found his friend Aleix Espargaró, with whom he had previously been a teammate Suzuki : ” Aleix was important to come here because I have a good relationship with him and we talk a lot when we take the plane together. But I think what decided me was more the atmosphere and the passion. It’s a fairly new brand, not new in racing history, but new to improve in MotoGP. In a way, I want to be part of this process, to bring a factory back to the top, like we’ve done in the past. It motivates me enormously. It’s a different challenge, but that’s what motivates me. I want to be a champion, but I also want to do something special “. It is all the evil that we wish him.
