The MotoGP championship heads to Italy this weekend for the Mugello Grand Prix. The Yamaha team has enjoyed good success at the beginning of the season. Here is what Valentino Rossi and Jorge Lorenzo have to say:

VALENTINO ROSSI

‘Arriving at Mugello as the leader in the championship and being in a great shape is perfect. We are fast from the start of the season and this is important. I really like the Mugello circuit, the Italian Grand Prix is always a nice weekend, but also Jorge loves this track. Jorge and I will try to put our Yamaha‘s on top again, but this time I hope it will be in a reverse order! In Le Mans I struggled a bit, but I still managed to take second. At Mugello we must not make mistakes with the setup of the bike, starting from the free practices. We will work hard from the first day to make this a nice weekend. There will be so many people in Mugello. We will have even more fans visiting the track already on Saturday. It will be a great race!’

 

JORGE LORENZO

‘Le Mans was a confirmation that I‘m feeling stronger and that I‘m in a great shape. Claiming a second victory in a row was very important to me and the team in order to know for certain that Jerez wasn‘t a one-time event. In Le Mans we got the pace and the rhythm to achieve another win. The YZR-M1 is a nice bike to ride and permits me to ride in the manner I like. In Le Mans we were able to do a perfect job during the whole weekend, as in Jerez, and now we look forward to racing again in Mugello. The track is maybe one of my favorites throughout the MotoGP calendar so I‘m eager to race there. In the past I got so many wins in Mugello and it‘s a suitable circuit for both me and the YZR-M1. It‘s fluid, with many uphill and downhill sectors and amazing, long high-speed corners such as Arrabbiata 1 and 2. I will try to fight again for the podium here and keep this nice momentum going!’
