The Italian rider expressed his happiness for the return of MotoGP, which will start the season next weekend in Jerez.
Finally the season of MotoGP World Championship will start this weekend in Jerez, Spain, and the Italian pilot of Yamaha, Valentino Rossi, expressed his happiness at the return of the competition.
“We can finally enjoy MotoGP again! Honestly, it’s a huge relief for me, because I’ve really missed my M1, and I think the fans will be very happy too. Tomorrow we will start with the first test sessions in Jerez. The steps we took at Sepang and Losail during the preseason were positive, but a long time ago, “said Rossi.
He added: “We still have to organize ourselves and work hard tomorrow to start the Spanish GP with a good understanding and a good feeling. Anyway, I am ready to start this new season with my team. We will do our best!”
In the same sense, Rossi’s partner in Yamaha, Maverick Viñales, said: “I am so happy that the wait is over! We finished the winter tests in a positive way. I had a good preseason, because I was calm and had a good rhythm in both the Malaysian and Qatar tests, so I think I will arrive here in good shape. But Jerez is a very different kind of track, so we will have to see tomorrow what the current situation is really like. “
“I’m looking forward to getting back on the bike, full throttle, and having that ‘racing feeling’. It’s also great to be back with the team, because I’ve missed them so much. One thing’s for sure: all the fans will be watching Spanish GP from home, so I want to do everything possible during the test to prepare for a good battle for victory or the podium on Sunday. Let’s make this a season full of good memories! “Concluded the Spaniard.
