The 31 year old having changed the name of the team from MSD R-N racing Team India to Mahi Racing Team India, said that he wanted to keep it 'sweet and simple', when asked about the name change.

"We thought MSD R-N was quite a big name. There were some other reasons also. So we thought let's keep it sweet and simple at Mahi Racing Team India," Dhoni added.

"We will have to chalk out a plan because there are three categories, Sport, Supersport and Superbike. We will see how it goes. Definitely it's an option for us," said Dhoni.

Moreover, having signed three-time World Champion Kenan Sofouglue and Fabien Foret, who is placed fourth, the Kawasaki team is all set to compete in its first full season next year's World Superbike Championship.

Dhoni also attributed his team's wonderful performance to the team, as they have a good team.

"There is nothing like a Midas touch. It is all about the team. You need to have a good team. You need people to perform on the field. The same applies to the racing. You need to have good riders, good team, good technical support. Racing is something where technical assistance is very important apart from the driver's skill," he explained.

Dhoni, who also revealed that he did not have an idea of starting a riding school in India.

"I would lie if I said I dreamt about opening a riding school. Opening a riding school definitely wasn't on the agenda. But now we are in a position to do it," he said.

Dhoni also clarified that he wanted to promote the sport in India and also open a driving school as they are in a position to open a school in the country in order to have Indian riders in the team.
