MotoGP Brno, Valentino Rossi

9-time World Champion seems happy to be back to the race track where he won for the first time in his career, back in 1996.

“Czech Grand Prix is always a special weekend for me. It’s where I achieved my first victory in 125 class, I will never forget that moment. 

I’m sad that we’ll race without fans, especially on this track, because the atmosphere in Brno is always incredible.” 

Valentino achieved his last victory here in 2009, the last podium in 2016, when he took second place.

Yamaha is extremely fast this season, but they have a lot of problems with the reliability of their engine, which they have been working on especially in the last few weeks. 

After just two races, Maverick Vinales already uses a 5/5 engine, while Rossi and Petronas riders use 4/5 engines already.

“Also, it’s a track that I like, so I’ll try to give the fans from home a good show. We must push at 100% this weekend to try repeating the podium from Andalucia.”

Rossi is currently sixth in the early MotoGP Standings, which are headed by fellow M1 riders Fabio Quartararo and Maverick Vinales, whom he joined on the Jerez podium.

The Czech Grand Prix is scheduled for Sunday at 14:00 CET.
