Just a few days after a scintillating win at the Motul TT Assen, the Monster Energy Yamaha MotoGP team head to the Sachsenring circuit for the ninth round of the 2019 MotoGP World Championship, before a three-week summer break.
Maverick Viñales : “After the victory in Assen I feel like I’m still dreaming. It came at a time when we needed it the most and it gave us the confidence and strength to continue working hard. We arrive at the Sachsenring with a high level of concentration and eager to show that what happened in the Netherlands was not a coincidence but the result of hard work. The Sachsenring is a good track for us, it’s a track where I’m usually fast at, so I think that we have the potential to be on the podium. I can’t wait to be back on my bike and work hard from the start of the German GP.”
Valentino Rossi: “This is not a positive time for us. The end to the race in Assen was a real shame because I felt good after the warm-up, I was fast but instead ended up with another zero. The good thing is that now we go straight to the Sachsenring and we can immediately work on another GP weekend. It will be important to understand if the changes made for last Sunday’s race will also be positive at the Sachsenring this weekend. We will try to be competitive right from the start on Friday.”
