Continues to struggle in what should be a breakout year. A fifth in Moscow was his best in four races, dropping three spots to 11th in the points.

Had another solid month (third and fourth at Toronto and two thirds at Edmonton) which moved him into second in the standings.

Also had a solid month despite a DNF at Toronto. Came back to finish third after starting 21st in the second race. At Edmonton, had two seconds including a pole, moving him into third in the standings.
