Priaulx has found it frustrating not being competitive
Guernsey's Andy Priaulx is aiming for a fourth World Touring Car Championship.
The BMW driver won the event in 2005, 2006 and 2007 but failed to win in the past two years and is seventh after the opening race this year.
He said: "If we just get the car right and we start performing pretty soon then it is possible to win this championship, but it's pretty tough.
"It's going to be unlikely, but I don't want to limit myself to a result - you have to aim high and work hard."
He added: "You have to know within your soul what you've done is enough and it is a fine balance and it's easy to aim too low, underperform and be caught out so you've just got to have the belief that something good is going to happen."
