The Italian rider was almost the protagonist of an accident in the last Grand Prix of Styria, which this weekend will be racing on the same circuit.
As in Formula 1, the MotoGP repeat circuit again. This time like Styrian Grand Prix, the pilots return to running in the Red bull ring and Valentino rossi He referred to the accident that occurred in the last race.
At a press conference, the Italian rider said: “It was a very difficult moment, I was very scared after the accident as I saw Zarco’s bike flying over Maverick, but I didn’t see Morbidelli’s because it was very close and it was going very fast. We were very lucky, we were lucky and it was difficult to assimilate what had happened. “
He added: “It is a circuit that is difficult for us, we had to suffer a little as our pace was not too good to fight for the podium or victory in the first race, but in the second half I did not feel bad; I had a steady pace. It was some good points, but it’s strange to be racing at the same circuit again another weekend. “
Finally, Rossi closed: “It’s a bit dangerous because we have two or three straights at over 300 kilometers per hour and the worst point is turns 2 and 3. It’s a shame because it’s great and very technical, with difficult braking, but it can be very dangerous at the same time. “
