Valentino rossi came to Mugello to face one of the most special weekends on the calendar. After a year away, the Italian driver had one of the worst weekends of the season, at least so far. In the second free practice session, Valentino finished in 21st place, a long way from the points area and with great concern: «It’s reality«, He assured.
After a very difficult free practice session, Rossi spoke to the press at the Mugello circuit. Everyone hoped that he could present his new helmet, which as usual in the Italian Grand Prix, it will have a very special design. However, he did not want to speak in a cheerful tone since the sporting situation did not leave him with good feelings.
“On Sherry was better on Monday (in tests) and in Le mans We confirmed that feeling because I was faster in the sessions. It was closer to the front and the placements were better too. We started exactly with the bike here at Mugello, but obviously something more is needed. Mugello is always a special circuit. We have to find the correct weight distribution, ”Vale stressed.
Although Valentino spoke of possible improvements for Saturday’s qualifying, after practice, the nine-time MotoGP champion highlighted his poor performance. “I was quite slow in Practice 2, but I also had the hard tire compound and everyone who chose the hard tire was struggling. I improved my lap time with him, but my position was still bad.
«I was wrong and at the ‘San Donato’ corner I went straight on in the second lap. In my opinion it could have been a bit faster, but not much. So, what is in the time table is the reality. It could have been a little faster, but it is not a big difference “, said the frustrated pilot of the Petronas, that he can run his last race at this circuit in case of confirming his retirement.
