MotoGP Motegi: Still three-tenths to find for Rossi

Movistar Yamaha’s Valentino Rossi knows there is still work ahead of tomorrow’s Motegi MotoGP round to see if today’s setup modifications for qualifying will translate to the three-tenths of a second he needs to take victory in the race tomorrow.

The Doctor’s crew managed to find a setting which allowed Rossi to bag second place behind an extra-soft-tyred Andrea Dovizioso in qualifying and will use morning warm-up to translate the new settings to a race scenario.

“The second place and the start in the front row will be very important for the race of tomorrow. There are a lot of riders very close with a great pace so to start in front is great. We work hard with the team,” said Rossi, speaking at Motegi.


“There remain a question mark as in free practice four my pace was not so bad but nothing special, it looks like Pedrosa, Marc, the Ducatis and epsecially Jorge are a little bit faster than me but we improve a lot and I can push strong. For the race, we have to understand if the qualifying modify help me for the pace and improve three-tenths per lap.”
