Valentino Rossi failed to get on the 2019 Aragon MotoGP podium after finishing eighth. After the race, the racer nicknamed The Doctor complained about the motorcycle again.
Shown at the Aragon Circuit on Sunday (09/22/2019) local time, Rossi finished behind two other Yamaha racers, namely; Maverick Vinales and Fabio Quartararo. His time is even 23 seconds behind Marquez.
Rossi said that his motorcycle was not in the best performance. Even if compared to the two Yamaha racers, Rossi assesses the problematic motorcycle settings.
“This is not a tire problem, but rather our problem. Our arrangement, because in the second half of the season we modified the bike and I am more competitive in general, but we always have a problem of rear grip,” Rossi was quoted as saying by Crash.
“(My motorcycle, red) suffer more than Quartararo and Vinales,” continued The Doctor.
The Italian racer also claimed to have not found a solution to improve the motorbike. In fact, in the nearest race in Thailand, Rossi’s rival Marc Marquez could seal the world title.
