Just two days after the race in Austin, Valentino Rossi heads to Termas de Rio Hondo for the Gran Premio de la República Argentina.
Valentino Rossi arrives in South America fresh from a third place podium finish at Circuit of the Americas (COTA). Still topping the World Championship standings, the nine-time World Champion looks forward to bettering his position from last year‘s race at the Termas de Rio Hondo Circuit, when he finished just off the podium in fourth place.
“I‘m happy to go to Argentina because I like the track. We hope that there will be a better condition of the tarmac compared to last year, because the track and the lay out are good. It‘s also not a bad circuit for our YZR-M1, but first we take a few days of rest and then we‘ll try to be focused and prepared for the race.”
Massimo Meregalli - Team Director:
“After a good race in Austin we‘re on our way to Argentina. We are in a good position because we are leading the championship and we have good prospects for the coming races. The circuit in Argentina is nice and suits the Yamaha quite well. It‘s our second time visiting the Termas de Rio Hondo Circuit and I expect that it‘s going to be another intense race between Yamaha, Honda and Ducati. We go into this weekend with the intention to keep up our performances from the last two rounds and we look forward to getting started.”
