"I'll jump on the bike, which is not that easy at the moment, because I haven't been on the bike too often this year. It's going to be interesting to see what my speed is and how I can learn the new track and many other things.
"Of course, the crew is new for me, so I have many things to learn. It's a big challenge and we'll go and do everything as best as possible."
Lecuona is 19th in the standings with 27 points. (Reporting by Simon Jennings in Bengaluru; Editing by Hugh Lawson)
