MotoGP Misano, Bagnaia: “Am I Rossi’s heir? No! Come him nobody “
Dovi: “My feeling increases”
The Forlì enters into the merits of the work done: “Yesterday I didn’t push, he couldn’t force, today I felt better on the bike. Now I can begin to understand the M1, which seems very similar to the one of 2012 but really different from the Ducati I was used to. How am I riding the Yamaha? There are a lot of positive things coming into the corners, but it will take time to understand them. The bike transmits everything you do, it’s not that easy. Misano is a short track but it has some fast sections, feeling at ease here is positive “.
“I like working with Forcada. Ramon knows exactly the bike and therefore you can make targeted changes to improve the set-up,

“Rossi? He was curious about my opinions”
Dovizioso is asked for an opinion between the current M1 and the one driven in 2012 at the time of Team Tech3: “The DNA is always the same, but when you get in the saddle after a long time it is normal to be surprised. I don’t think I’ll use the new bike in tests, but right now it’s better this way, because you have no idea how different the Yamaha is from the references I have.. I have to change my driving style. What matters is having the new bike in the end-of-season tests “.
“In reality, Yamaha has not changed, but MotoGP has changed – 2004 world champion in the 125 class continues – 3 years ago it was known on which circuits a brand would be strong and on which not, but now this is no longer the case. Just think that Quartararo could have won in Austria. You cannot do the arguments of the past, they count for little. We must adapt “.
Dovizioso also spoke about Valentino Rossi, his boxmate until the end of the season: “We had a chat with Valentino, he was curious to hear my opinion on the bike. Let’s say that in the past I saw him more on the piece “.
Who will win on Sunday? Dovi has no doubts: “Bagnaia has the pace to win, he’s strong here, it’s his track and Ducati has done many tests with Pirro here. It seems that Quartararo has more, but in my opinion it is not like that “.
