    Default Rossi unhappy over late start for MotoGP Race At Sepang

    Friday, 08 October 2010

    At the end of today's free practice session, Valentino Rossi delivered a strong message to Carmelo Ezpeleta.



    It is ridiculous that MotoGP has to wait until 4pm to race, because of Formula 1 - Rossi commented - everybody knows that after a certain time here, which is usually 3:30pm, it is almost certain to rain. It seems like we will be waiting around for it to start raining. We are always bowing down to the power of Formula 1, while they couldn't care any less about MotoGP and aren't afraid of anyone. We are the ones who are always afraid! At 2pm there is a 90% chance it will not be raining, while at 4pm it is the opposite. It's really stupid."

    And last year...

    Last year I had the championship on the line and I was worried. The race started at 4:00, I was on pole, and then after a few laps we had to interrupt the race and re-start with the wet setup. The organizers need to consider these things, and not just the TV schedule."

    Did you talk to Carmelo Ezpeleta?

    So many times! I also told him that I would talk to Bernie (Ecclestone, ed) if he wanted me to. But he just made a face as if to say that Bernie doesn't care, and isn't interested at all in what MotoGP is going. F1 gets better TV ratings in Italy."

    Then a Spanish journalist pointed out that F1 gets better ratings in Spain as well.

    It's a sport that is more popular than MotoGP. Maybe because of Ferrari, I don't know...

    But MotoGP has Valentino Rossi...

    Yes, but obviusly Formula 1 is better known.

    Well that could be a good thing when you go to Formula 1, right?

    At think point I really don't think that will happen.
