Danny Webb doesn't expect to suffer in the sweltering heat and humidity of Kuala Lumpur this weekend as he looks to score points for the third time in four races. The Briton picked up his best result of the season last time out in Australia and hopes the Mahindra team's strong form continues in the final two races.

Webb has already enjoyed success in Malaysia having won a pre-race karting event which included Moto2 stars Andrea Iannone, Bradley Smith and Ricard Cardus and looks forward to the challenge of Sepang this weekend.

“I like the track, though I had a big crash there last year when somebody cut me off. The heat doesn't bother me too much. We pulled it off in Australia, with a good race for both me and Marcel. Let's see if we can do it again.”

Teammate Marcel Schrotter also has plenty to race for as he looks to secure 15th overall in the championship and with rival Simone Grotzkyj out injured, the German has a golden opportunity to pull ahead.

“Sepang is a long and difficult track, and I'm not sure whether it will suit our bike – but the way it has been going we can aim to keep improving and do another good finish. My aim for this season was to be in the top 15 overall, so I will be pushing for points.”
