Valentino rossi had to leave the Grand Prix of Portugal after a crash while marching in 11th place. The Italian had a good race, having come back from 17th place. However, the most exciting moment for him was watching him fight alongside Luca marini, his brother, whom he ended up advancing: «It was weird«, He assured.
Before his fall, Valentino had his brother in front of him and according to his words, seeing him there generated a very particular emotion. It was not only Luca who was in front, but the motorcycle that ‘Il Fratellino’ was carrying had the now famous logo that identifies Rossi: VR46. This is why, after the Portuguese Grand Prix, Rossi made his feelings known.
“Unfortunately, I had to be aggressive towards my brother because he was faster than him. Was behind Alex Marquez and we were going more or less the same, but then I lost a lap to anticipate Luca. It was strange to overtake a motorcycle with the VR46 logo, but above all to overtake my brother “, confessed Valentino in an interview.
Although he had been having a good race in Portugal, Valentino was unable to finish it due to a crash near the end of the event. On the other hand, Rossi assured that he will seek to improve the results he was obtaining this season. In his words, he is clear about the aspects to improve in the face of Spanish Grand Prix, which runs next week.
«In qualifying I have to do better. I find it difficult to improve on the soft tires. This race gives me confidence, because I was better today and in the next ones we will go to good circuits. We improved the set-up and I was able to use the hard butt, which gives me more stability, so I was able to go better and I was not very far from the group that fought for the podium.
