Tenth World Title – It isn’t easy for Valentino Rossi recover Marc Marquez. The Italian champion believes it, but the victory of the tenth world title appears very complicated. Valentino Rossi thinks so. 59 points to Marquez are too many. “I think it will be very difficult.” said Rossi at Autosport. “In these first nine races, I didn’t take as many points as many as I wanted. Because I made a lot of mistakes. At this point the distance from Marquez is very wide. We’re looking at another mid-season, nine other races are there. We will try to give our best, then we’ll see what happens.”
Michelin tires and the electronic control unit only for all teams do not have a negative impact on the MotoGP. “We tried the Michelin three or four times last season. We were worried because we were slow and we crashed often for lack of feeling with the front.” added Rossi. “Yamaha has worked for a new bike which was totally different from that of 2015. So, it was with a different weight distribution and the tank in the back. Then, the Michelin tyres have improved a lot and we were able to run with a set up very similar to the one for Bridgestone. This is positive.”
Tenth World Title: Rossi must Win in Austria
Finally, Rossi speaks about electronics. “We thought it would be a revolution in reverse video. Instead, it was only a small step back.” The Italian Champion is almost agreed with Casey Stoner. The Australian said that the electronics are the bane of MotoGP. A lack of finesse in the style of driving. Now, the MotoGP back on track in Austria on 14 August. Lorenzo and Rossi will have to fight with Marquez and hope that the Spaniard did not face too many points. Or 2016 MotoGP World Championship will really be closed.
