Agostini and Nieto discuss title battle at Misano

Both set to share the `honour´ of having their winning records broken by Valentino Rossi in 2008, MotoGP Legends Giacomo Agostini and Angel Nieto were brought together to chat about the latest happenings in the title picture at Misano.

In the following video, the two former champions also discuss their own experiences at the scene of this weekend´s race, where they raced during their riding days.

Angel Nieto
`Now we have two riders that want to win the World Championship. Valentino has a 50 point advantage, and I think that he has done a great job in putting pressure on Stoner.´

Giacomo Agostini
`Well, Valentino is a great champion and has the benefit of experience. He is seven years older than Stoner, and many more years on track. At Laguna Seca he won because he was the more astute; without this, Stoner would have been able to get ahead of him. I think that we are lucky to have Stoner in MotoGP, because he creates some really exciting races.´

Angel Nieto
`What do you think about what is going on with the Spanish riders?

Giacomo Agostini
The Spanish… at the start of the season we had Lorenzo and Pedrosa doing well, but then they had a few problems. I think that the two will be back in form soon, as they are very young and have time to fight back.´
