– ROME, AUGUST 15 – “Had there been one lap less I would have been on the podium. And I think I deserve a podium or a victory, let’s sign a petition for the 200th anniversary, do you know how many I’ve lost in my career?” . From the microphones of Sky Sport, Valentino Rossi jokes about the final of the Austrian GP, ​​where with three laps to go, at a certain point, while it was raining heavily, he found himself in third position. “There is no perfect solution – said Rossi – and in any case I prefer to do three laps with slicks in the wet and be careful than having to stop in the pits and start again. Also because there wasn’t a great storm and so it was the right decision. Then with two corners to go, everyone with the wet tires arrived and they all passed. It was a lot of fun. “

But didn’t Rossi really think, at a certain point, about the conditions of the race and the risks? “I had a bit of fear – the ‘Doctor’ replied – but when these conditions are met and you are on the bike you are in another dimension, with a high level of concentration. Now you are there”. (HANDLE).
