2015 MotoGP Season – Valentino Rossi talks of unhappy 2016 MotoGP world championship. However, he admits that the ending 2015 season was worse. Next weekend, Rossi will be one of the protagonists in the Monza Rally Show 2016.
2015 MotoGP season conditioned this year
“I didn’t win the Championship. So, I was sad, but honestly, I am most disappointed not to have won last year. This year, I was a bit unlucky, I had a few problems. I have not yet overcome some disappointments of 2015 MotoGP season. It was difficult since the first victory in Jerez.” said Rossi during an interview.
“The moment that decided the 2016 season was the GP of Italy. The problem with the engine of his Yamaha, when he had the control of the race. It was the most important moment of the World Championship.” added Rossi. “If I had not broken the engine, I could fight again. When you’re fighting is different. When you’re 30 points is easy, but when you’re online five points to your rival it’s better.”
Maverick Vinales, The Internal Challenge
Next year the internal challenge will be with Maverick Vinales. “I didn’t choose him. I would have someone like Pedrosa. He is a little older. Maverick is equal to Lorenzo. But I think that he is cutest. My relationship with Jorge changed at the end of 2015 MotoGP season. Because we quarreled. However, after the last race, he hugs me. Then, he told me that he has always respected me. It was a nice moment.” said Valentino.
Marc Marquez, the Strongest
“Marquez? Fortunately, he is not my teammate. I think the 2015 shown many things about him. Among us there will be nothing. Only an ordinary employment relationship. Respect. However, he is really a great rider. Marc is really strong. He never gives up and always gives everything to win. He has the driving skills of the latest riders generation. Then, he has a particular style, with the elbow attached to the ground. He’s a bit too strong. I wish he were a little less strong.” added Rossi.
Talking about Himself
Then Valentino spoke of himself. “After 20 years I enjoy still driving a motorcycle, otherwise I would be at home. It is everything else that tired me a little. What to eat before the race? A plate of pasta with tomato sauce. We bring it from home directly. Mrs Franca does it. The clothing? During the last few races, I was a bit cold. So, i put under a thermal shirt. The first years I put a paper.”
