Rossi: Aragon seems to work well with the Desmosedici

“Last year at Aragon was the best race of the year for Ducati, so we approach this round with our expectations a little higher than usual" - Valentino Rossi.
Valentino Rossi is raising his expectations 'a little higher than usual' as he heads for Ducati's best event of the 2010 season, at Aragon.

Casey Stoner and Nicky Hayden finished one-three in MotoGP's first ever race at the impressive Spanish circuit last year, when Rossi finished sixth for Yamaha.

Rossi returns sixth in the 2011 championship, with just one podium, from his 13 races on the Desmosedici.

“Last year at Aragon was the best race of the year for Ducati, so we approach this round with our expectations a little higher than usual," said Rossi.

"In addition, after the difficult practice sessions at Misano, we found a good setup in the end and I had a better feeling with the bike and managed to ride it better in the race, especially in the early laps.

"Now we'll try to combine the two things - the track that seems to work well with the Desmosedici and the good setup work - in order to find the same feeling on Sunday.”

Team manager Vittoriano Guareschi doesn't expect any major breakthrough this weekend, and again emphasised that Ducati is working for the future.

“We have some great memories of Aragon from last year, so we're happy to return. Every season has its own story though, and we're obviously currently working not only for this weekend but also beyond," he said.

"Our riders and team are completely focused on the goal, and they're giving us a collaborative working group that I think is extremely important. At Aragon, we expect to continue gathering data and information on the Desmosedici and to speed up the setup work during the practice sessions.”
