Rossi focusing race-by-race

9-time world champion concentrating on good races and good points

Valentino Rossi (Movistar Yamaha MotoGP) had a great race in Misano as he led the field at home and then came home in P2, but disappointment was natural for the Italian after proving unable to hold off Repsol Honda's charging Dani Pedrosa for the win. The two staged a memorable battle in 2015 at MotorLand Aragon; another that Pedrosa won, but Rossi has shown already in 2016 that track records can be re-written and is looking only for good races and points hauls as he chases down championship leader Marc Marquez (Repsol Honda).

Valentino Rossi: "Even though I wanted to win in Misano, I can say that it was a good race anyway. In all the next races we will do our best to get always the best result, just like we did in Misano. The only thing that interests me now is to do good races. In Aragón we will have to work well from day one, as we have been doing this entire season. This circuit has fast corners and hard braking, so it will be important to have a good bike, with a perfect set-up. I really like the track and, even if it is not one of my favourites, we will try to do our best."
