Valentino Rossi will race on Mugello GP 2017. The Italian champion took part in FP1 and FP2. So, he has been able to test his physical condition. The most important thing.
Mugello GP 2017, A bad surprise for Vale
“The pain in my right arm was very strong. The first contact with Mugello GP 2017, after the green light of doctors, had more shadows than light for Yamaha’s champion.” said Vale. Valentino Rossi’s first impressions were positive. Because he had noticed a definite improvement in his physical condition in recent days after the fall, and then it was all hope in a weekend downhill. But the track was not so. “I felt very bad when accelerating my right arm. I didn’t believe it. That was a bad surprise.” explained Rossi, who did not use painkillers.
The Mugello’s temperature
“For the second session, I prepared with the help of the “clinica mobile”. We did the treatment arm, I took a painkiller and in the afternoon I went a little better. Mugello with this temperature is difficult even if you are at 100% and I are not at maximum, I suffer. However, with going ahead of the weekend the situation improves for everybody. So, hopefully I can improve myself, especially for Sunday. It will be the most important day.” added Rossi.
He is not happy of the Yamaha M1
However, Rossi is not happy about his bike. “I have two different problems. One is physical and the other is the bike. I have not a good feeling. I’m not that far from the pole position. But we must work very hard on the bike“. The 15th position of the morning and the 12th of the afternoon care Valentino, who wouldn’t dispute the Q1. “We need to grow step by step so as to fit within the first 10 days because otherwise everything becomes more difficult.”
