Valentino Rossi will face his penultimate lap of his MotoGP career this weekend, the Algarve GP in Portimão. Now that the Petronas Yamaha SRT veteran returns to the top ten in the final lap, he wants to make sure it hasn’t been sporadic and continues.
Il Dottore said in a preview statement that he was in good shape before he fell at the first Algarve race this year: “Portimão is a difficult track and has some very special characteristics that other tracks don’t have. The first of our two races there this year was not bad for us as I was able to make my way through to the top ten. Unfortunately I crashed ‘.
With this in mind, Rossi has set himself the goal of leaving Portugal with a positive result:
– The goal this weekend is to have a good race and move forward. I had a good feeling there before, especially on Sunday, so I hope we can be competitive and repeat a great result like last time at Misano.
