The lanky Australian said: "I am really looking forward to it. It is still only early days for the FP1 but, from the results the team has been achieving lately, it's clear it has potential. I never set myself targets, I just go out to win. But I am really hoping to do better than last year as I now know a lot of the tracks that I didn't know in my first season, which made it really tough. I am also really pleased to have Steve as a team-mate and the chance to share information in trying to get the bike up there challenging for podiums."

McCoy rode for a privateer Ducati team in WSBK in 2004 and made a few cameo appearances in MotoGP towards the end of the season aboard the Aprilia as a replacement rider for Shaky Byrne.
