Valentino Rossi (Movistar Yamaha MotoGP) is having a more difficult weekend at the German GP following his win at Assen last time out, and the nine-time World Champion has qualified ninth on the grid after a wet Q2. Struggling more at the track in the conditions compared to at the Dutch GP, the Italian says in the dry the situation isn't as difficult - but that he'll be looking for some final modifications ahead of lights out for the race.
Valentino Rossi, P9: "It‘s been a difficult weekend so far. It happened a lot of times this year: the feeling with the bike and especially with the tyres changed a lot from one track to the other. This makes it always a big surprise, sometimes positive, sometimes negative. In the dry I'm not so bad, it's nothing fantastic, but my pace is not so far from the front, but unfortunately in the wet I suffer more. It looks like all the Yamahas, except Folger who isn't so bad, suffer in the wet. We didn't expect it, because last week in Assen I was competitive in the wet, but it looks like this time it's more difficult, so we need to try some modifications for tomorrow and try to be stronger."
