Kecaman yang kian bertubi-tubi terhadap performa sang Valentino Rossi dari berbagai fans dan media yang kian menurun drastis makin memojokkan sang Valentino Rossi.
Kondisi tersebut mendapat perhatian dari mantan pembalap motogp Loris Capirossi.
Dilangsir twowheelsblog bahwa Loris Capirossi memberikan belaan td rekan senegaranya Valentino Rossi dan mengecam pihak2 yang memojokkan Rossi dgn komentar2 yang pedas.
Berikut kutipan wawancara Loris Capirossi :
In an interview on Panorama.it Capirossi was asked if he would have vented like Rossi and what he thought about it, the former rider replied, “Probably I should have done it too,
because last year I had problems with my Ducati, but he and I are different but this is probably my problem,” adding “No one can argue Valentino’s talent. He’s a champion and that’s for
sure and everyone should bear that in mind before judging him. He’s won nine championship titles and before anyone talks they should win as much as he has. Better yet, everyone should
keep their mouths shut. I think that he
complained because being the rider that he is it isn’t gratifying that he’s fighting for positions at the back of the grid. I don’t want to blame anyone, let’s be clear on that, not Ducati nor
Valentino, because I believe that that they are both working 120%, and that’s the most important thing.
Also asked why Hayden has done better than Rossi on the same bike, Capirex said, “They’re just numbers and they don’t count now.
Valentino was right behind him went he went off track, and when you go off track you need time to recover and there was no longer time to catch up, because when a bike isn’t competitive
you can’t catch up. That said, I’m sure after this season Valentino will be ahead of all other Ducati riders. One race doesn’t make the difference. Situations like these have happened
to me too. I know how it works. Unfortunately, we live in a very difficult world. When you don’t get results everyone starts to talk and make judgments. I believe that in Valentino’s case it is envy. He has done so much for motorcycling and if someone can attack him now they are
happy. I’m always on rider’s side and will always defend him. He’s a champion and has won a lot.
He’s having a difficult time, probably with a non-competitive bike. So guys,try to understand it.”
“Valentino is certainly giving his best . He gave a lot of important information to the team, who should follow him. As he said himself, Valentino is not an engineer, but has lots of experience and Ducati should try to follow what he says. A rider always has a lot to teach to a team. “
