Valentino Rossi: I like Silverstone

August 22, 2019 0 By autotimesnews

Valentino Rossi is preparing for the race on one of his favorite tracks. This weekend will be the Grand Prix of Great Britain 2019 at Silverstone.

Rossi won the British Grand Prix seven times at Donington Park. In 2011, the British stage moved to Silverstone, where the Doctor boasts four podiums, including a victory in the 2015 rain race.

At the next stage, Rossi could try to compete for a place on the podium. He has not finished in prizes for a long time. Last success achieved at the Austin Grand Prix. On the other hand, the Doctor is the top Yamaha racer in the World Championship (fifth), although for 11 races from the beginning of the season he scored fewer points when compared with previous seasons. The last time it was worse in 2012 (the era of performances at Ducati).[IP]&ua=[UA]&domain=[DOMAIN]&page=[PAGE]&secure=[SECURE]&language=[BROWSER_LANGUAGE]&bidfloor=[BIDFLOOR]&gdpr_consent=[GDPR_CONSENT]

Rossi finished fifth at the last stage in Austria, where, surprisingly, the Yamaha M1 prototype worked much better, which gives hope to all fans of the team and, in particular, Valentino.

Valentino Rossi said: “I love Silverstone. He is in the top five of my favorite tracks. I like it a lot because it is made in the old school style. The track is very long. Each circle travels like a trip from one place to another. In addition, the track is very technical in every section. When you can go fast, this track gives a lot of pleasure. To be fast, you need a good feeling and stability. You can be fast on stilettos, but there are also a lot of long corners, so Yamaha is usually strong. We hope for good weather, as last year was a nightmare, especially for fans.

It seems that the track did a great job with the new coating, the grip became better, and there were less bumps. I really want to try. “

At the moment, Yamaha scored only 179 points in the Cup of designers. This is the worst result since 2003.
