Rossi: This is my biggest problem...

Valentino Rossi makes the business of winning look deceptively simple at times - and the Yamaha star admits that his biggest problem is that it can often look much easier than it actually is.

"This is my biggest problem! Maybe it is better if I finish the race with lots of sweat and with my eyes sticking out and say something stupid (laughs)," he smiled. "No, I think it is my character. During the race if I win, or if I don't, I feel more or less quiet and try to understand what has happened so that, for example at Laguna, I can be stronger next year.

"It is never easy. I always, always try and - for example in the race at Barcelona with Gibernau - there was one point where he went very fast and took 0.7secs advantage, then my front started to slide and I think maybe this time it is impossible. But after he also started to have the problem and the situation came better - but it is never easy.

"Also in Assen, I think I'm very much faster than Melandri, I try to go in front ten laps from the end and I say 'now I take the advantage' but then Melandri came back - it's always difficult," he insisted.

Rossi has only lost two races from ten starts in the 2005 MotoGP season so far.
