Valentino Rossi: "Audi has an ambitious project and wants me to continue" | twowheelsblog.com | Ducati & Italian Bikes | Scoop.it

In a post race interview with the usual Sportmediaset’s Italia 1, Valentino Rossi talked about his Sachsenring race where he took a sixth place behind Stefan Bradl, “Today’s race went a little bit better, definitely better than in practice This weekend we decided to work on a setting that was similar to the one we used at Barcelona and Estoril, in order to suffer less with the rear tyre. Although we weren’t able to try it much in the dry, it turned out to be pretty effective. It allowed me to have a pace that was consistent and pretty fast until the end. At first I was careful because there was a lot of confusion especially Barbera who was ‘messy’ on his braking points. When I realized that I didn’t have the pace to escape the group I was in, I waited for the right moment to attack, and in the end, I was able to pass almost all of them. I tried with Bradl as well, but when I was almost next to him, they gave us the yellow flag for Stoner’s crash, and I backed off because anyway, I would have had to let him back by. I was sixth, our best result in the dry this year, so now we’ll continue in this direction but we haven’t solved our problems. The bike is a little more difficult to ride, but at least I was to brake hard and to ride at a good pace until the end.”
