Best – Valentino Rossi believes that he is in his best form. The best form of his career. The Italian champion that he is more competitive than 2015, when he missed the Moto GP World championship.
The Italian champion won the last of his seven titles in Moto GP in 2009. Rossi won four races last year. However, he lost the title for only 5 points. Rossi lost the world title against his teammate Jorge Lorenzo. This year Rossi is doing better. Two race wins of seven. For now. “The important thing is to be strong and fast Sunday afternoon,” said Rossi. “That’s what I thought during my entire career. Last year, I fought for the Championship until the last race. However, sometimes in the race I wasn’t as fast as Marquez and Lorenzo. This year, it seems that I am stronger. Although I have fewer points. It’s a good time. I like my bike. The Yamaha is very competitive. I really like the Michelin tire. Because it is growing and it is something very familiar.”

Marquez has an advantage of 10 points to Lorenzo and 12 points to Rossi. Rossi also believes that Suzuki and Ducati will make the fight for major points increasingly difficult. “I think that during this World Championship each race becomes more open. More difficult to understand. Most interesting,” said Rossi. “I think we are all on the same level. I’m very fast as Marquez and Lorenzo, but at the same time Dani Pedrosa, Andrea Iannone and Maverick Vinales are very strong. It will be very important to track. Sometimes our bike is better. Sometimes Honda is better. Sometimes other drivers are faster. However, there are still 11 races to go. So the important thing is to work and try our best.”
