"The Ducati will reach me, but on other tracks we will suffer less"

Spielberg.- Despite the bad time that Yamaha is going through on a technical level, Valentino Rossi continues to demonstrate race after race that is in an exceptional state. This weekend, after suffering a lot in a circuit that does not go well to the M1, the Italian did not manage to move to Q2 and had to start 14th on the grid, his worst position since Australia 2016. Despite this, Rossi left As a rocket and began to climb positions to finish sixth, a result that allows you to maintain the second place in the overall World Cup, although now to 59 points from the leader, Marc Márquez, and with Jorge Lorenzo and Andrea Dovizioso, behind, at 12 and 13 points, respectively. "I am quite satisfied with the race because we were far behind. This morning we made a change that allowed us to be somewhat more constant, although my pace was not anything special either, "the Italian acknowledged. He also reads: Rossi wanted to see the base half full, in a race to forget. "The thing was better because it calculated to finish seventh or eighth. We knew that here we would have a bad time. " Valentino had fun tracing seven positions in the race, with some overtaking at the limit. "At least I could have fun during the race because I made some overtaking and nobody happened to me. I was able to roll in a steady rhythm and keep the rear tire. " With the pace at which the Italian turned at the end, if he had left later, he could have fought to be fourth. "If I had left a little later I could have fought with Petrucci (5th), not with Crutchlow (4th)," he admitted. After achieving four podiums in five races, Rossi now has two without being able to reach it. "Now we have to suffer, even to fight for the podium, and depending on the circuit, more or less." With the victory of Lorenzo and the podium of Dovi, the Ducati are dangerously close to Italian in the general. "I think the two Ducati will reach me, but I also think that on other tracks we will suffer less." Now Yamaha will do two private tests, in Misano and Aragón, to try to reverse the situation. "I do not think the two tests that come can turn around the situation we are in. Anyway, you have to try, "concluded the Italian.
