MotoGP – What they said…


While may of us are expecting some trash-talking from MotoGP greats in the weeks that precede the start of the 2016 season, the pilots seem to be focusing more on pre-made, politically-correct phrases.

MotoGP: Let’s see for how long that will last and here is what they’ve been saying:

Valentino Rossi:
“I feel good, I‘m continuing the physical preparation and it will be very important to return at the front immediately on track. We want to continue the work begun in Malaysia and continue testing new material and improve the bike for this season. At the end of 2016 my contract will expire. So I will have to decide whether to continue for another two seasons or not. If I continue, it will be for two seasons as all the contracts are for two years.”

Jorge Lorenzo:
“I‘m preparing mentally and physically for the coming season, which for sure will be as tough as last year. Despite the good results we had in Sepang, it‘s crucial to stay calm and keep our feet on the ground because in this sport every day is so tricky and things change quickly.”

Pol Espargaro
“I don’t think there is much to improve with my riding at this point. The thing we need to improve is the feeling with the new electronics and tyres. Once we have that sorted we can work on what I can do and how to get the most out of the Yamaha.”

Cal Crutchlow
“The 2015 season was okay, it wasn’t spectacular. It wasn’t my best season ever, but it also wasn’t my worse season ever. We know that a lot of the other bikes around us are quite ready compared to us. That’s why I say, while we have a long way to go at the moment, the potential is massive.”

Marc Marquez
“Now we go to Australia and I’m looking forward to continuing our work on the new engine and the new electronics. We made a few steps in the right direction over the three days at Sepang but we need to make some more at Phillip Island.”

Dani Pedrosa
“I’m happy this year we are testing at three different circuits in such different weather and track conditions; I think it will be very useful to help us to better understand the new engine, electronics and tires.”
