We suffered a lot

"Suffered" on top of his M1. Valentino Rossi (Movistar Yamaha MotoGP) achieved his worst result of the year at the Jerez Circuit and had to settle for 10th position. The nine-time World Champion saw Lorenzo, Zarco, Dovizioso, Viñales, Petrucci, Folger and Aleix Espargaró pass him by when he suffered great tire vibrations. Even with the set-up changes, they made this morning, they have managed to improve.

Despite the nefarious result, managed to save 6 points for the championship and remains leader of the championship with 2 points of advantage over Viñales, with 4 over Márquez and 10 over Pedrosa.

It was a very difficult race after a difficult weekend. I never had a good feeling with the bike and the tyres. We tried to work a lot, especially to fix the spin and acceleration, but unfortunately for the race, we did worse. We tried to modify it a bit, but I was also in trouble with the front. At the end, I had to slow down a lot and had a lot of vibration. It was OK to arrive right at the end, but it was a difficult weekend for the whole team. We expected to be stronger and more competitive at this track, looking at the results of last year. We need to try and understand what happened, tomorrow we have the test and we’ll see.“
