Rossi: "Second place is more important than normal"

Valentino Rossi (Movistar Yamaha MotoGP) will start his home Gran Premio d’Italia Oakley from P2 and the middle of the front row, despite the number 46 riding through the pain barrier following a motocross crash in training ahead of the event.
After a tough Friday, Rossi was back at the sharp end on Day 2. And, despite a low-drama crash ahead of qualifying, the nine-time World Champion put it on the front row behind only teammate Maverick Viñales, ready to push even harder on Sunday in front of the home crowd.
Valentino Rossi, P2: “It was a difficult week, starting from last Thursday. Very tough. I had the crash in training, and sincerely until Tuesday I didn’t think it was possible to race, and I was very sad. To be here and when my condition got a bit better it’s like a gift. So I have to give the maximum to have a good race and for the fans. I had a lot of pain and it was difficult to concentrate and do my best – and I also didn’t feel good on the bike. For us, it’s also important if in Le Mans we understood where to go, but I was optimistic. Today I was always quite strong from the morning, good pace and on used tires, and at the end, I did a really good lap. This afternoon was good with a good feeling, but unfortunately, I made a mistake and went off – I lost a bit of feeling, but this second place is more important than normal because from me to the second row we’re very close, and I think the race tomorrow will be very tough. I’m getting better day by day with a good recovery, and I don’t have pain when I ride – but I need more time to recover. I think the race will be harder than normal but I hope I can recover again for tomorrow like I did since yesterday for today.”
Valentino Rossi: “Today we did great work, carrying on from yesterday. My condition improved and we also improved the setting of the bike. This morning was the first practice that I ended in P1 this season, so I’m very happy because I did a great lap time. This afternoon I was also strong, but unfortunately I made a stupid mistake at the end of FP4 and I slid. Fortunately it was no problem, also because it was with the second bike, I didn't damage the right bike. However, I lost a bit of feeling, so to make this second place was good, even better than normal, because when you start with a mistake, maybe you need it sometimes. I think the race will be very tough from every angle, because it looks like there are six other bikes with the same pace, so to start from the front row is very important.“#ItalianGP

Valentino Rossi: "Hari ini kami melakukan pekerjaan hebat, terus berlanjut dari kemarin. Kondisi saya membaik dan kami juga memperbaiki setting motor. Pagi ini adalah latihan pertama yang saya berakhir di P1 musim ini, jadi saya sangat senang karena saya melakukan putaran waktu yang bagus. Sore ini saya juga kuat, tapi sayangnya saya membuat kesalahan bodoh di akhir FP4 dan saya meluncur. Untungnya tidak masalah, juga karena dengan motor kedua, saya tidak merusak motor yang tepat. Namun, saya kehilangan sedikit perasaan, jadi untuk membuat tempat kedua ini bagus, bahkan lebih baik dari biasanya, karena ketika Anda memulai dengan sebuah kesalahan, mungkin Anda memerlukannya kadang-kadang. Saya pikir balapan akan sangat sulit dari setiap sudut, karena terlihat seperti ada enam motor lain dengan kecepatan yang sama, sehingga untuk start dari barisan depan sangat penting. “#ItalianGP
