Rossi: "Márquez is very aggressive with all his rivals"

The Italian does not point to anyone to blame for the incidents between Marc and Aléix, but charges against the driving of # 93: "I don't know how this situation can be improved."

I have no idea how this situation can be improved", The Italian stressed, in statements collected by, that he does not point to any culprit in these specific actions, but he does charge against the "aggressive" driving of the ilerdense.

Unfortunately I lost some positions at the start, but I was able to drive decently. I finished and scored points, so it went well. Here you need a lot of acceleration and top speed, virtues that the M1 lacks, "he explained.

In reference to the problems it has caused in the last races with the start, the # 46 blamed everything on some changes in the electronics that do not allow it to start "at ease": "At Sachsenring and Assen we adopted a different starting system. It was not suitable for me and I did not feel comfortable. In those two races I went badly. Before those changes I used to start well on the grid. For this race we improved, it is a question of electronics, but we are still not 100%, "he claimed.He did have good words for Pedrosa

After recovering from the shock of the first race, the KTM luxury guest achieved a great 10th place, after two and a half years without competing. A feat that did not go unnoticed for Rossi: "Pedrosa was very brave, he made a great comeback. When he got rid of those in front he showed a good rhythm. It is not something that is so obvious to be able to return and do a race like this after three years ”, Valued on the return of # 26, without giving more ball to the accident that caused the red flag:" What happened with his fall could have happened in any other circuit, "he settled.
