Buriram, EN runganSport — This weekend MotoGP riders will fight in areas that have not been mapped on the MotoGP racing calendar.
Thailand for the first time this year will hold MotoGP, the only capital of the drivers is the result of the pre-season test earlier in the year.
But, not all riders got good test results in February at the Buriram circuit.
One of them is Valentino Rossi, the Italian rider was only able to finish the 8th fastest in the Pre-season test in Thailand yesterday.
However, Rossi still hopes this weekend will be positive for him and hopes to get on the podium in Thailand.
“After a long series of races in Europe, it’s time for us to go to Thailand.
Previously we had pre-season tests there in February.
Buriram is not one of my favorite circuits, but it could be an important racing week to improve our motorbike,” Rossi said confidently.
Rossi’s target this weekend is to take the podium. Rossi was last on the podium at the German MotoGP.
“This is a fun opportunity to meet fans in Asia, they are very fond of MotoGP.
We will try to make the best weekend possible.
“My goal is to fight for the podium and get good results,” Rossi said hopefully. (DN/eV)
