Fresh from topping the timesheets on the first day of the Sepang Test, John Hopkins gave an interview to motogp.com to talk about how he has changed his riding style to adapt to the 800cc bike.

"We're continuing on the right track. I am adapting my riding style from what I used on the 990cc, because this bike lets you do new things when you pick yourself up. The saddle reminds me of motorcross. The power of the bike is great, especially the cornering speed, and we've still got a long period of testing before the first race," commented Hopkins.
