Rossi 4th but just .132 off pole in Le Mans

World Champion Valentino Rossi ended up just 0.132s off pole position at Le Mans on Saturday afternoon, having upped the pace during the day at the Grand Prix de France.

The Fiat Yamaha star was eleventh in Saturday morning practice at the famous French venue and was therefore pleased to have made it onto the second row of the grid.

4th – Valentino Rossi Speaks…

“Qualifying was a lot better for us! Yesterday and then again this morning we weren’t in such good shape, but we’ve done a good job to fix the bike and this afternoon I could ride how I wanted. It’s not perfect and we can still make it better, but we’re okay. We’re on the second row and a good start will be important because all the top riders are very, very close and there are many that I think can challenge for the race tomorrow. I think it could be a very fun race; for the fans but I hope also for us! I do hope it’s dry, like this, but if it’s going to rain it would be better if it rained all day so we can try our wet setting in the warm-up, because finally here we’ve been more or less on a dry track for all three sessions.”
