Moto GP, Assen: la conferenza stampa dei piloti

Valentino Rossi: «Dobbiamo ritrovare il feeling del 2016» Rossi incalza: “Ritrovare il feeling del 2016”
Sveva Terracina | 23 Giugno, 2017, 05:44

Molto più cauto è apparso Andrea Dovizioso. "Ci manca un po' di stabilità e mi auguro di trovarla al più presto". Dopo le vittorie conquistate consecutivamente al Mugello e a Montmelò, sogna la 'tripletta'.

Il GP d'Olanda dall'anno scorso si disputa di domenica, rompendo la tradizione di sempre che prevedeva la corsa di sabato pomeriggio. Sarà fondamentale farlo per mantenersi in vetta alla classifica, ma non sarà facile perché Dovizioso, Marquez, Rossi, Pedrosa e Lorenzo tenteranno sicuramente di mettere i bastoni tra le ruote al leader della classifica generale piloti. Il Dovi è pronto a calare il suo terzo sigillo stagionale, grazie anche allo stato d'animo entusiasmante che lo circonda.

Diciassette curve e 4542 metri di pista per dimostrare il proprio valore: l'ottava tappa del motomondiale riparte da Assen, in Olanda. Assen mi piace molto, in passato abbiamo sofferto con Honda, ma penso che quest'anno con questo motore possa andare meglio, anche se sappiamo che Yamaha e Ducati sono molto veloci su questa pista.


"Durante i test abbiamo trovato alcune soluzioni interessanti -conferma Rossi- e ora voglio provarle su un'altra pista per capire se stiamo andando nella giusta direzione. Il tempo sarà un'incognita, visto che qui è assolutamente imprevedibile, ma dobbiamo essere in grado di adattarci a tutto". Ha parlato anche Jorge Lorenzo, apparso in buona condizione dopo il buon quarto posto del Montmelò: " A ogni gara la mia confidenza con la moto aumenta - ha detto il pilota spagnolo della Ducati - spero di poter migliorare ancora e di lottare per il podio". Questo in Olanda e il prossimo impegno sono molto importanti: "se riuscissimo a confermare quanto fatto nelle ultime gare potremmo dire la nostra in questo campionato del mondo molto strano e combattuto". "Dobbiamo pensare solo a noi stessi e cercare di essere sempre competitivi in pista". La quadratura del cerchio è stata evitata anticipando alle 13 - in pieno pranzo, almeno in gran parte di Italia - la partenza della gara di Assen, mentre a Baku, complice anche il fuso orario (in Azerbaigian si è a +2 rispetto a Roma), il semaforo verde si accenderà alle 15.

Le due ultime vittorie non sono bastate a convincerti?
