"I was with good pace and position in Malaysia, then I was first in Mandalika [in pre-season] with a good feeling on the race pace, was quite fast," Espargaró said after the Qatar Grand Prix.
"Then I was saying let's just wait for the first race and let’s see what happens there. Now we are in the first race, I lead almost all the race and I have been powerful. I felt powerful on the bike.
"I feel that I can do that in all the races, so we started from Qatar and the feeling was nice. We take 16 points here and we move to Mandalika which is a place where I’m fast," he added. 
"Finally we can achieve what I’m dreaming everytime I wake up, which is to be world champion. For sure, I’m going to fight for it with Honda."
