Rossi: “We must be very careful with him”

Assen saw Rossi extend his winning record in the premier-class, his most recent win coming almost 15 years after his first.

Having now finished on the podium in the last 12 successive races, Movistar Yamaha MotoGP’s Valentino Rossi is confident of another strong result having already put the dramas of Assen behind him. The Sachsenring has seen the Rossi take a total of five victories, four in the MotoGP™ class with his most recent win coming in 2009. Since then he has only had one podium there, in 2013, although narrowly losing out on third to Casey Stoner in 2010.
Assen proved to many that Rossi has overcome his Qualifying demons, taking pole position for the first time in 2015. Despite this and his stunning victory, the Italian is aware that both Jorge Lorenzo (Movistar Yamaha MotoGP) and Marc Marquez (Repsol Honda Team) will threaten for victory once again. Following the German GP, MotoGP™ take their annual summer break giving riders a chance to relax and recover.
Valentino Rossi: “I'm ready for Sachsenring and am going into this race weekend with a happy mindset. I managed to recover a bit of an advantage that I had lost in past races. Having a ten point lead after eight races is not bad, I'm very happy. Now we go to Germany and it will be very important to reconfirm how competitive we are. We understand that our competitors are working hard to return at the front and in Assen we succeeded in staying ahead. Marquez will probably be with us in the next races and we must be very careful with him. At Sachsenring my first goal will be to work as we have done in the Netherlands, starting from the first free practice. Jorge I'm sure will come back strong, making it even more important to work well this weekend. After Sachsenring there will be a break and it will be important to rest a bit before taking on the second part of the season.
