Rossi: “Felicité a Mir porque ganar el segundo año no lo hace mucha gente”

El corredor de Yamaha solo pudo ser 12º en la meta, a casi 20 segundos del vencedor, su compañero de fábrica e íntimo amigo Franco Morbidelli, que con una M1 de 2019 dejó en clara evidencia a las motos oficiales.

“Llevo sin terminar arriba en carrera desde la segunda carrera en Misano (cuarto). No tuvimos agarre durante todo el fin de semana, y nunca pudimos pelear con los de delante”, razonó Valentino Rossi.

Crónica del GP de Valencia:

Mir se proclama campeón del mundo de MotoGP en Valencia

Pese al desastre de las Yamaha 2020 en estas dos carreras de Valencia, Rossi no pierde la esperanza de acabar la temporada de forma digna.

“Tenemos una nueva carrera la semana que viene, en Portimao, y creo que allí podemos ir más rápido”, adelantó.

Más de MotoGP:

Morbidelli: “Ayrton Senna es una inspiración, no me puedo comparar” Mir, un campeón de MotoGP atípico Pol Espargaró: “Muy contento por Mir, es muy trabajador y un tío normal”

Al final de la carrera se pudo ver a Rossi felicitando al nuevo campeón del mundo, el joven mallorquín Joan Mir.

“Felicité a Mir porque ganar el Mundial de MotoGP en su segundo año (en la máxima categoría) no lo puede hacer mucha gente. Es joven, pero siempre toma las decisiones acertadas en los momentos clave”, destacó del nuevo campeón.

A Rossi le recordaron que hasta 2016 la Yamaha era una moto fácil y ganadora, que cambió a partir de 2017 y que ahora con una moto del año pasado Morbidelli es capaz de ganar a las oficiales fácilmente.

“En 2017 la situación entre las motos (Yamaha) era distinta. En estos momentos, Franco es el piloto más rápido de MotoGP, él marca más diferencia que la moto”.

No hacer tantos test como el resto es uno de los motivos del problema.

“Hasta 2020, las demás motos tenían un test rider europeo muy activo. Yamaha no lo tenía en Europa, y los japoneses rodaban en pistas japonesas”.

Por ese motivo, Rossi señaló que Andrea Dovizioso hubiera sido un test rider ideal.

“Me hubiera encantado que el piloto de pruebas hubiera sido Dovi. Pero Cal, si tiene motivación y ganas, puede ser muy útil. El tema es más el programa del equipo de test, que tiene que ser serio”, dijo recordando el poco caso que Yamaha ha hecho este año a Jorge Lorenzo.
