2011 MotoGP Wallpaper
Valentino Rossi struggled tremendously at Indianapolis Motor Speedway for the 12 round of the 2011 MotoGP Championship.
Rossi began Friday practices with grip issues, and then crashed in the beginning of qualifying. The nine-time World Champion Rossi was able to remount on his backup Ducati Team GP11, and finishished the session, qualifying 14th.
Rossi then struggled throughout Sunday’ 28-lap MotoGP at the 2.6-mile Indy circuit, eventually finishing 10th.
Valentino Rossi (Ducati Team MotoGP) says: “A number of things happened this weekend that contributed to making this a particularly difficult race: the crash yesterday in qualifying, which robbed some confidence and was part of the reason we had to start so far back on the grid, and today there was a problem with the gearbox.
“The bike stuck in neutral six or seven times, and the first two caused me to go straight and lose time. I found myself in last place, but I decided to do what I could to at least get some points. In this morning’s warm-up, we had made a small change that let us improve the pace a little, but the race was really difficult. We know that we have to work hard. Ducati is doing that, and my team and I are as well, because we must try to not let up and to get the bike ready while we wait for technical updates.”
Regardless of his finish and struggles, Indy MotoGP brought about some great action shots of Valentino Rossi, which make for great wallpaper.
