Fiat Yamaha rider Valentino Rossi’s team boss Davide Brivio has said the squad can now enjoy this weekend’s Phillip Island MotoGP and go racing "for the fun of it".
Rossi is a big fan of the Australian track and has taken plenty of wins there in the past while Brivio says the team has some very good memories of the place.
“For the last three races we can take a new approach to racing, because we’re going for the fun of it and to try to win again. That’s the way we look at this weekend so we’ll see how it turns out," said Brivio.
"It would be nice to win at Phillip Island because it’s a great track, Valentino loves it and we have some good memories from there. It has not been very good for us for the last couple of years, ibut hopefully we can change that on Sunday. I think Valentino rides better without pressure because he is riding purely for fun and that is his main motivation for racing. It should be a great race.”
