Rossi: “It’s very important to start in the top five”

The ‘Doctor’ just misses the front row but starts P4 at Assen

Valentino Rossi (Movistar Yamaha MotoGP) just missed a front row start at the Dutch GP, but the number 46 says the most important thing is starting in the top five and near the front – something he more than achieved to head up Row 2 in fourth.

In fact it was a positive day overall with good pace and a good feeling, as well as some good information gained – now all that remains to be seen is the weather for race day.

Valentino Rossi, P4: “It’s a shame to not be on the front row but it’s very important to start in the top five for the race. I am in fourth position, it’s is a good place, and it was always a positive day because I was competitive this morning, I felt good with the bike, we had two more-or-less full wet sessions and we can work on the new chassis to understand where it can be competitive. The feeling was quite positive. Now, we have to wait for the weather because the conditions here in Assen are always a big surprise; we are hoping for dry, fully dry or fully wet, and we will see.”
