Petronas Yamaha SRT Team rider Franco Morbidelli admits that he is more motivated to see the last three series in the MotoGP this season after winning at the Teruel GP two weeks ago.
For information, the 2020 MotoGP event only leaves three races. Each of them is the European GP Series at the Ricardo Tormo Circuit, Valencia, then the Valencia GP at the same circuit and finally the Portugal series at the Portimao Circuit.
Ahead of the three races, the current standings are still uncertain. Morbidelli himself is in 4th position with 112 points or 25 points adrift of Joan Mir.
The racer who graduated from the Vr46 Academy has won two victories this season. Including one of them at the Teruel GP in France two weeks ago.
His victory and position in the standings made the Italian rider feel motivated to achieve maximum results in the remaining three series. Especially at the Ricardo Tomo Circuit, Valencia in the next two series.
Morbidelli considers that the Ricardo Tormo Circuit has its own challenges but is included in one of his favorite track lists.
“It’s nice to face the last three series this season after winning my second win this year at Aragon. Valencia can be tricky for a MotoGP bike, because the track is narrow and compared to other class bikes, MotoGP bikes are too powerful for a track this small,”
“But Valencia is a place I like, because that’s where I took the first steps to enter the prestigious world of motor racing, namely the Spanish championship,” said Morbidelli.
Not only in the next two series, Morbidelli’s determination is to achieve maximum results in the remaining three series, including at the Portimao Circuit. His goal is to become world champion considering that he is now only 25 points adrift of the top of the standings.
“We are determined to fight back for top positions. We are only 25 points behind the leaders, so I want to be aggressive in the last races in Valencia and Portimao to see what we can achieve,” he concluded.
Meanwhile, the European GP itself will be held next weekend, from 6 to 8 November.
