Agostini: “The most important thing is respect”

Agostini: “The most important thing is respect”

15-time world champion Giacomo Agostini chats to motogp.com about the 2016 season, plus the relationship between Rossi & Marquez.

MotoGP™ Legend Agostini, who won 15 titles in all and was crowned 500cc World Champion 8 times during his illustrious career, gave motogp.com his thoughts on the upcoming season: “In the last few years we have seen some very exciting racing, none more so than last year’s MotoGP World Championship. This year I think we will see a great show once more with four or five riders fighting it out for the title.”

The man who won 122 GP's in total also commented on the relationship between Valentino Rossi and Marc Marquez after the two clashed on and off the track in 2015: “I would like to see a bit more respect between them because for me this is the most important thing. I don’t think that true friendship can exist between rivals in our sport, but the important thing is to have respect for each other as that leads to great racing and this is what I hope we will see.”
