Rossi: “It will be important to make a good start”

Valentino Rossi realizes the importance of a good start from 7th on the grid if he is to have any chance of winning Sunday’s race.

Rossi pushed hard on his second flying lap with a 1‘41.257, temporarily reclaiming seventh spot before making his way back to pit lane for a fresh set of tyres with less than seven minutes of the session remaining.
Two minutes later he headed out on his second stint. Unable to improve with his third flying lap, he picked up the pace in a last effort to better his starting position. The flag signaling the end of the session had already come out when Rossi was on a final clear run, delivering a 1'41.058. This moved him up from ninth to seventh, 0.512s from pole, to take the first slot on the third starting row.
Valentino Rossi: “I‘m quite satisfied with the set-up and the turn of events of today. Yesterday we found a good balance for the last exit and we have a good setting, so I feel confident with the bike and today was not so bad.  I have a good pace with a used tyre and for tomorrow that will be very important. I expect we will have to make some improvement for tomorrow, we have some work to do in the warm up and apply some small modifications. For the race, as always it will be important to make a good start and stay within the top positions in the first laps. After that I will try to understand the pace for the second half of the race when the tyres start to slide a bit.”
