“Misano is always a very special place for us and also for many fans. It’s so close to Valentino’s house in Tavullia that as a team we see this round as our second home GP too. The supporters here live and breathe motorbikes and motorsport, their passion for it is almost tangible. Both our riders get incredible support here, so we want to repay the fans by doing the utmost to provide a good show this weekend. We’ve had a successful test here in Misano two weeks ago, so we're approaching this GP with a positive mindset and we can’t wait to get started.”
