Rossi: “Aún no sabemos si la moto de este año es mejor que la del pasado”

No corren buenos tiempos para la marca de los diapasones. Tras la sanción por haber manipulado sin permiso su motor, sobre la pista atraviesa una crisis que está a punto de verle perder los tres campeonatos.

La M1 de 2020 está recibiendo críticas por parte de los tres pilotos que la llevan –Valentino Rossi, Fabio Quartararo y Maverick Viñales– y los buenos resultados de Franco Morbidelli con una versión más antigua y teóricamente inferior ponen en duda cuál es mejor. 

"En Yamaha esperábamos con muchas ganas la moto de 2020, porque nos dijeron que era claramente mejor y el motor, más rápido", indicó Rossi. "Pero estamos en la penúltima carrera y aún no sabemos si es mejor que la moto vieja. Lo que está claro es que no ha significado el paso adelante que esperábamos. Hemos ganado seis carreras, pero en los circuitos complicados tenemos los mismos problemas de siempre. Y hay que mejorar el motor, porque en eso sí que estamos en desventaja respecto del resto".

La Yamaha de Morbidelli (8º) volvió a ser la mejor M1 en una jornada en la que tanto Rossi como Quartararo se quedaron fueran del corte provisional para la Q2. 

Así acabaron los libres del GP de Europa :

Nakagami lidera el arranque en el GP de Valencia Miller lidera el FP2; caída de Mir, que queda fuera del top 10

"Franco es el piloto de Yamaha con mejor ritmo. Él lleva la moto del año pasado, pero no creo que la diferencia entre las dos motos sea muy grande. 

Viñales (10º), de momento, sí está clasificado, pero el español se sigue quejando de la falta de agarre.

"Tengo los mismos problemas que Maverick. La moto se mueve mucho de la parte de atrás y no tenemos agarre", indicó el #46

Las quejas en Yamaha:

Viñales: “Las quejas de Quartararo prueban que siempre dije la verdad” Quartararo: “Las otras fábricas trabajan mucho mejor que Yamaha”

Mientras en Yamaha no tienen nada que celebrar, en Suzuki están a punto de ver coronarse a Joan Mir 20 años después del último título de la marca de Hamamatsu.

"Nadie apostó por Mir en las primeras carreras de este año, pero en las últimas del año pasado, y en los test de pretemporada, fue rápido. Es muy maduro, parece que tenga más experiencia de la que tiene. Es su segunda temporada en MotoGP, pero tiene un talento increíble. Nadie pensaba que podía ganar el título. Solo ha ganado una carrera, pero la de Austria también se la hubiera llevado sin la bandera roja. Es una gran sorpresa para todos, pero si gana el título se lo merecerá al 100%", comentó el de Tavullia.

Rossi, que esta semana estuvo a punto de quedarse fuera del Gran Premio después de un nuevo positivo por COVID, lamenta la influencia que la pandemia está teniendo en el Mundial.

"No me esperaba que la COVID afectara tanto al campeonato. Es difícil hacerlo todo. Espero que el año que viene sea mejor, y eso pasa por celebrar las carreras en Europa, en su fecha más o menos justa. Eso haría que el campeonato fuera más o menos justo", remachó.
