Jorge Lorenzo has been struggling with his Ducati machine since joining this year, but insists there is light at the end of the tunnel.
The Spaniard won three MotoGP titles at Yamaha but has failed to replicate that form in any way this season, as he finds himself in eighth place on the riders' standings after five races.
Teammate Andrea Dovizioso has featured marginally better and is sitting in fifth place.
"For the moment, I just can adapt my riding to get the maximum with the bike we have," revealed the 30-year-old on motorsport.com.
"When we will try something new, that can improve our one or two big weak points, then we can improve also the bike [specifically] for me and for Dovi.
"Until this happens, I can adapt my style as much as possible to get the maximum out of the bike we have."
Despite the poor results, which include one retirement and an 11th place finish, Lorenzo believes that the Ducati team's hard work will eventually pay off, so he is keeping a positive mindset.
"I am keeping the right mentality, pushing the team," continued the three-time MotoGP champion.
"The team is working unbelievably, they know what I need and we are getting that.
"I'm getting more used to the bike, I'm playing more with the bike every time; we just need to improve one or two big points that for me are quite big to stay there with the top guys."
