It may be easy for some people to get complacent after a few wins at the start of the 2014 Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship season, but the real trick is not to let the wins, or the losses, go to your head.

I'll admit there were elements of the past race weekend that frustrated me, but you can't dwell on it. I'm tied jointly at the moment with Jason Plato and there's still a long way to go this season. We have to maintain momentum.

I know Jason and lots of others are breathing down my neck in the championship standings, but you can't let it bother you. There are so many good drivers out there that I can't see anyone running away with the title just yet. The racing will continue to be close and that's what makes this sport great. As a team we just need to keep scoring points, and we'll take risks when we need to.

When you do make mistakes, and we do make them, you're very angry with yourself. But it's important to use that anger in the correct way and transfer it into a very focused and hard drive back through as I did in Race 3 at Donington; I was so angry at myself at the time but I took my anger out through my driving, and produced a very important drive back through to 5th.

Those points may prove crucial later in the year. Moving on, you must learn from the mistakes and not dwell on them; everyone makes them, so it's best to forget about it and crack on.

It's a similar situation when you see the likes of Plato and MG scoring very well and running away with race wins. It could play on your mind, but it doesn't. You push it to the back because you know your time will come.

We were dominant at the opening race weekend, and we'll be dominant again somewhere else. Different teams will have favourite tracks where they will score very strongly. As much as I would want to, you can't go to every race meeting expecting to be the fastest. It doesn't work like that in a championship as competitive as this; certain circuits suit certain cars and drivers, that’s just the way it is.

At Thruxton, for example, I think we'll be right up there; the car is always very strong around that track. I expect to be right up at the sharp end, even with carrying our ballast. But then again, most people could be thinking the same way.

Thruxton is a good old-school circuit, it's fast and flowing, and it's dangerous. I was two corners away from winning there last year when I had a puncture, so I feel I have some unfinished business. I have been on pole the last two years but am yet to win a race there.

If the first few rounds of racing in this new BTCC season are anything to go by, it's shaping up to be a very good, and very close, year for the championship.
