MotoGP series leader Valentino Rossi is looking to make his tally of six wins at the Dutch TT to seven at Assen's round of MotoGP this weekend - and to put more space between himself and second-placed man Casey Stoner.
After a seventh podium in as many races for at Donington Park on Sunday, the Italian is keen to get to another circuit he loves and where he has taken wins from four of the last six races there in the premier-class. Rossi arrives at the ninth round of the season in great form, with an 11-point lead in the championship over Dani Pedrosa and having not missed the podium since the opening round of the season in Qatar and not finishing outside the top two since round three in Portugal.

“I’m really glad that we’re going straight on to Assen, which is another of my favourite circuits. Donington was good and we took important points and extended our championship lead but it was still a bit disappointing not to be able to fight at the front with Stoner and I am happy that I only have to wait a few days to try to turn this around," said The Doctor.
"Last year’s race in Assen was magic, the best of the year, and I would like to repeat that victory again this year. Of course this time I would prefer to start from the front row instead of the fourth, even if making all those overtakes last year was great, great fun! I still miss the ‘old’ Assen but it’s still a fantastic track and the atmosphere is very special, plus our M1 usually works very well there so I’m looking forward to another exciting weekend. Once again Donington showed how strong our rivals are, so we can’t rest even for a moment and we have to be on our best form from Friday morning if we want to achieve our aim of getting back to the top of the podium.”
