The time has come to head to England, to Silverstone, where the British GP will take place this weekend. Valentino Rossi will arrive in the English countryside after his good result in Austria, at the end of a crazy race in which he chanced it with slick tires on wet asphalt and had fun.
The British circuit certainly brings to mind many good memories, since that’s where Valentino won six times, got four poles, and ended up on the podium twelve times. Aiming that high will be difficult, but it’s definitely the right place for a good race.
“I really like Silverstone. It’s a great track and one of my favorites,” the Doctor stated. “It’s a long circuit and has it all. Fast, medium sections, and it’s very technical in some places. I’m usually quite strong there, so let’s hope that this will also be the case this year and that there’s good weather this weekend. I think the forecasts are good at the moment, but we have to be ready for anything. The track can be dry at the beginning and wet at the end, or it can be wet only in some places. I can’t wait to get back there this weekend.”
