Waves come and go. How difficult is it to keep the momentum?
Jonathan: “In this “wave philosophy”, the wave can come, but you have to be ready. You have to prepare yourself. Sometimes people’s wave come when they are not ready, and it doesn’t work. In 2014, at the end of my relationship with Honda, I was in a very special momentum of my career; I was ready to get the perfect bike, at the right time, with the right crew. That was awesome. My wave was the Kawasaki Racing Team and since I joined them in 2015, I have been in the hot seat for five years. But waves come and go, and you have to work hard on and off track to keep the momentum. With the experience I have gained, I know what it works for me now, and we try our best to keep this run going. I know it’s not a never-ending fairy tale. The dream has an end, but the idea is to delay this moment for as long as possible. I feel I can be competitive and fight for the championship for the next few years. This is our target.”
