After a motocross crash in training, Valentino Rossi (Movistar Yamaha MotoGP) didn't even know if he'd be able to race at Mugello - but race he did, coming home fourth after briefly leading and fighting for the podium. Now he's had a few more days to recover, he's aiming to be back on the rostrum - with the track one he enjoys, and also stage of his most recent win. Despite wishing the break was a bit longer, the number 46 is nevertheless ready to give his best - as always.
Less grip but a great atmosphere and another challenging weekend of MotoGP™ awaits - before a one day Official Test on Monday, too.
Valentino Rossi: “I would have liked to have had a one-week stop after the Mugello race to recover in the best way. Anyway, I'm happy with the race I did, the bike rode well and in Barcelona I hope I can be better, I would like to go on the podium. Barcelona is a circuit that I really enjoy, even if it‘s a track with less grip, and we will have to try to find a good set-up to make the tyres work best. On Monday we will also have a day of testing and we will use it to try some other solutions. This is another Grand Prix where there is a beautiful atmosphere, with so many enthusiastic fans. We are ready to do our best!”
