I think we won that with perseverance; I just kept going. I could see on my pit board that the gap was fluctuating to Toprak and Scott. I knew that if I let those guys get in it would be very hard to get away. When I had a clear track I had to maximise it, make no mistakes and put in a little gap. But I had to keep doing that, never settling, because they were in their own battle and pushing hard. If I relaxed they were going to catch me. I had a good rhythm and the bike was on rails. I just ran into some vibration on the rear tyre at the end so instead of keeping pushing the tyre in the critical areas, like the fast right handers, I conserved the tyre a little bit more. Even then the gap was still increasing. It’s a really nice feeling as a rider to have that. I am looking forward to tomorrow now. In Superpole, I had a feeling that my first fast lap might have been deleted because I did see a yellow flag. When I got back to the pit box I saw my time was still there, but, to save any confusion, I put in another Q tyre and went out straight away. I tried to avoid any traffic in the latter stages of the session and I had clear track but you are also nervous sitting in the box, watching everybody else go fast
