This weekend he turned from Valentino rossi to the paddock of MotoGP. After three weeks without being above his Yamaha, the Italian tested negative for his coronavirus test (COVID-19) and was very happy to officially race again. However, he was unable to complete the test at the Valencia circuit due to a mechanical problem.
The season that the Yamaha team has been having is quite irregular. With a strong start, with a podium of ‘Vale’, the following races were not expected. That is why after the race this Sunday, the multi-champion did not hesitate to harshly criticize the Japanese structure.
After three weeks without racing, Valentino was only able to do 28 laps all weekend. That is why he was very disappointed after what happened in the race. “For me, personally, it is a great shame. I needed to do the race, also to be stronger for next week. I was there, but the bike stopped. It was an electronic problem, the engine broke, “said Valentino.
“It made me want to laugh”
However, Rossi already takes mechanical and health problems with a lot of humor. ‘Il Dottore’ confirmed that after the abandonment he was very calm. When he stopped, I was not angry. It made me want to laugh. I was calm, just to do kilometers and nothing, it was not possible. They told me it’s a problem that hasn’t happened in 12 years.
Finally, Valentino harshly criticized the Yamaha team for the results obtained. “We have not taken the step forward. Engineer technicians need to understand. Our rivals are not only ahead technically, but also from the point of view of the engineers. Maverick Viñales, Fabio Quartararo Y Franco Morbidelli They’re strong. With a competitive motorcycle they would play the World Cup. The problem is not the pilots ”, sentenced“ Vale ”.
