As long as we know you are a motorsports lover since you are very young, is that true? When did you start loving cars and motorbikes?
I always loved cars and motorbikes when I was younger, but no one else in my family had the same passion.  I used to watch Top Gear when I was still in school and dreamed of racing super cars around circuits for fun.  I started working in motorsport at about 18 and bought my first motorbike the same year, and it developed into an obsession after that, hehe.

The 2012 season will be very different because of the increase in the displacement of the MotoGP engines (from 800cc to 1000cc). How do you see it? It will be better or could be worse?
I think the MotoGP bikes could be more equals and maybe the races will be more spectacular. The negative part is the speed the bikes will reach. I think it’s not necessary for a good show; the beautiful thing in the races is the overtaking and the fight for the victory, independently of the speed of the bikes.

Jorge, Seeing the last season, which was the main key for the Stoner’s success?
Without doubt, Stoner and Honda have set an incredible couple. For both reasons, Stoner’s riding skills and the quality of the bike, they were a winning team
Which are the Stoner’s weaknesses and which are your strong points compared to Casey?
Casey has an innate talent that makes him very strong in any situation; it is very difficult to find his weaknesses. In any case, I think that we have to focus on maintain our strengths and improve our weaknesses in order to be better and faster. This is the way to fight for a MotoGP title.
