2011 MotoGP

After place his Ducati GP11 in the worse qualifying position of the 2011 MotoGP Championship, Valentino Rossi was able to make a top on race-day, finishing ninth at Sachsenring, Germany.

The Italian, who had won at Sachsenring a total of five times, continued struggling with front-end setup on the Ducati GP11.

Valentino Rossi (Ducatii Team MotoGP) says: "At the end of the race, I wanted to pass Nicky (Hayden, Ducati Team) on the brakes into the first corner, where I was pretty strong, but instead even Bautista (Alvaro, Rizla Suzuki) passed me on the straight. Anyway, that’s not where we want to be. We definitely improved (Sunday) compared to Saturday, but we’re still too far back.

"We find the race setup late, and that makes everything more difficult, but in order to improve we have to try many things, which makes it easy to lose our direction. It’s understandable, because we don’t know this bike well and I think we have to take chances and try everything. Now we’ll analyze the data from this weekend and decide what to do for Laguna Seca."

Regardless of his ninth-place finish, Rossi always looks good, and this wallpaper highlights the action of VR46 at Sachsenring MotoGP.
