Indeed the MotoGP world title has gone into Marc Marquez’s pocket, but racing is still a race. The next round was the Malaysian GP, the neighboring country … After an embarrassing defeat of Marquez by falling in the last two corners before the checkered line, Vinales had an agenda … Retaliation in the neighboring country!
For the Malaysian GP, the Spaniard is determined to cut this gap again. Hoping to be able to fight for victory. The Sepang International Circuit is a trial track in winter, and each team has a lot of data. Fourth place, Vinales was his best finish last year.
“In Australia, we are very competitive, we learn from racing. We control tire wear and our speed is good. The motor works well and the team does the job well. For Malaysia, we are ready to continue the fight. We will try to fight again at the top. “Vinales said excitedly …
Meanwhile Valentino Rossi has two more series to catch up with 16 points in fifth place standings. Rossi is currently seventh.
Sepang will be a good opportunity for the 40-year-old driver to get points. Rossi has claimed six wins in Malaysia and always finished on the podium in twelve races. One year ago, Rossi fell while leading with only four laps left.
“From the good test results, we know where we are at the weekend race. Last year I was very strong in Malaysia. Not fantastic on Phillip Island recently, but not too bad. There are some positive points. The Sepang series is of course very different and has very different conditions. This Grand Prix will be far more physically demanding, but we will see. We will definitely do our best. “Lid Rossi
