MotoGP Motegi: ‘Finger pain’ for Rossi under braking

Movistar Yamaha’s Valentino Rossi is suffering with pain from the finger he damaged in a crash at the Brno MotoGP due to the heavy braking forces generated by the Twin-Motegi track in Japan but says that he is satisfied with his performance so far.

The Doctor fell in free practice four in the Czech Republic and badly damaged the right digit but it hasn’t hampered him since but the amount of hard braking required at Motegi is causing some discomfort.

“I have some pain with the finger, especially when I brake, is a little bit of pain but sincerely I am optimistic. I can brake in a good way, I have a good feeling. From the rest, the first day is not so bad but we have to work a lot,” said Rossi, speaking at Motegi.


“We still haven’t found the right balance but the fifth position is not so bad, I have a good pace and it looks like the Yamaha work well at Motegi.”
