MotoGP Valencia: Rossi: We are still fighting for important points

'We are still fighting for the constructor's and the team's championship, so I will do my best to collect important points' - Valentino Rossi.
Valentino Rossi concedes that Valencia has not been his happiest hunting ground in recent seasons, but the Movistar Yamaha rider remains focused on ending the season with as many points as possible.

Rossi, who wrapped up second place in the MotoGP World Championship behind Marc Marquez in Malaysia, is determined to help Yamaha secure the Manufacturers' and Team titles this weekend in Spain.

“For me Valencia is always a special race because it is always very challenging. Usually on this track I suffer a bit and it's not good for me,” Rossi said.

“For this reason I want to be as strong as possible during this weekend, working well with my team and get the best possible result. We are still fighting for the constructor's and the team's championship, so I will do my best to collect important points.

“After the race I will finally try the new YZR-M1. I am very impatient to get to know next year's bike.”

Rossi has previously sealed two premier class wins at Valencia, in 2003 and 2004, and has claimed multiple podiums with second places in 2002, 2009 and 2014 and third places in 2005, 2008 and 2010.
