We had a very good winter test in Abu Dhabi and I am pretty confident that Arden will give me their best support to make a big step forward in 2014. As for my training programme over the winter I will make sure that I will be physically and mentally well prepared. It’s going to be an interesting year and of course we also look forward to our home race in Spielberg.“
