Valentino Rossi’s fasting podium starts from the European series for 12 series up to Thai MotoGP. Even absent the longest after he was at Ducati in 2011. Another danger is losing the 6th position of the world from the threat of Yamaha rookie, Fabio Quartararo. Valentino Rossi tries something different at the Japanese GP!
The Frenchman is now only two points away from Rossi after fighting with Marc Marquez at the last corner of Buriram. Rossi is quite far behind (20 seconds) behind. Being in a disappointing eighth position after problems with the lack of rear tire grip.
But Valentino Rossi and his Yamaha Monster crew will continue their efforts for the MotoGP podium by trying other solutions, something different at Motegi this weekend.
“For the next three races in a row, we will try to solve some of our problems with motorbikes.
Obviously, we are not happy with the latest results and at Motegi we will try another solution, something different.
“Said Rossi, welcoming the Japanese round.
Motegi is the track that Rossi likes, and tries to do a good race. Rossi finished fourth at Motegi last season. And as Yamaha’s top racer, on the wet track in 2015.
Team boss Massimo Meregalli said. “Motegi has traditionally not been an easy track for us, but we hope to start working on Friday, because we are determined to put on a good show for Japanese fans, who are always full of support.”
Valentino confirmed at Buriram that he would part with mechanical chief Silvano Galbusera at the end of the season, and work with VR46 Moto2 crew chief David Munoz in the 2020 season.
