Rossi knows the recipe to climb the podium again in Austin

The Italian wants to continue the momentum after being second in Argentina and making his third podium in Texas, the same goal that is Maverick.


After spending the entire second half of last season seeing how others were on the podium, this year Rossi only needed two races to return to occupy one of those steps for which all pilots fight. He finished second in Argentina after a disputed duel with Dovizioso and, now that he has tried again, intends to continue drinking champagne in Austin. Although Texas is Marquez's territory, Valentino has also done well there: he has done two podiums (2015 and 17) and last year he stayed at the doors.

With those numbers that make him third in the World Cup and the momentum that he gave back in the photo of the best in Termas, the Italian hopes to continue reaping good results in American lands: "It was a great emotion to return to the podium in Argentina after such a long wait for me, for the team and also for the fans, but now we have to focus on the next big prize We know that Austin is a difficult track, maybe it is the most difficult and technical track of the MotoGP season, but it has not gone so bad for me there. "

"In the last years I felt good and, although I did not reach the podium last year, I did it in 2017. So we have to do it like we did then: working well, rolling well and following The right direction. Then we'll see, "says Rossi in the Yamaha statement in which he also speaks his partner Maverick and, the first thing he does, is reassure about his physical state: " I arrive in Austin in good condition after the accident in Argentina, and that's the most important. Fortunately, I did not hurt myself. "

Forget that fall with Morbidelli in the last round of Termas, Viñales hopes to score good points so as not to be left out of the fight for the title ( Márquez takes him 36) on a track that he "likes" a lot: "I have very good memories of the Circuit of the Americas, so I will try to enjoy it. We will try to change the little things we found in the last race to be able to reach the podium, that is our main objective. We have to give our hundred percent to not lose more points and advance in the classification ".
