Yamaha rider Valentino Rossi is looking forward to the “tricky but fun” Sachsenring circuit in Germany this weekend.

Valentino Rossi arrives in Germany this week for the Grand Prix at the Sachsenring with the hope of a change in fortunes this season, which hasn’t gone quite to plan for the 9-time champ. He is 35 points behind his teammate Franco Morbidelli and sits 19th in the championship with a best finish of just tenth in Italy.

The circuit will prove a challenge for all but Rossi is looking forward to it, saying:

“It’s a very different track to the others, with a lot of the corners on the left and this makes it quite a tricky circuit, it can be very difficult sometimes. I’m looking forward to returning there, after we could not race there last year.”

Rossi’s teammate Morbidelli is feeling positive after a strong showing in Barcelona.

“We have the positives from Friday and Saturday at Catalunya, and also from the test there, to take with us to Germany this weekend,” he said.

 “I hope that we can use these and be stronger at Sachsenring, but of course we will have to see what happens when we get there. It’s a nice track, very tight in places, and I’m looking forward to being back there this weekend.”

Both Rossi and Morbidelli will be looking for top ten finishes at the German Grand Prix this weekend.
