Overall I feel good right now and I I’m ready to fight in Valence, which is a great track that I know well. It will be good to get back on track Friday morning for another racing weekend ".

“Although we had two difficult races last time in Aragon, for these two upcoming races I want to enjoy the good feeling that I have always had on a MotoGP motorcycle in Valencia. It is a small track but I like well. I had a great feeling there last year with the pole position, the podium and the post-season test. Of course I hope to be able to do it again this weekend. There are three races left this year and I have a 14 point gap with the leader. We know how fast we can be so I think we have some good opportunities for these last rounds in Valencia and Portimão. I am looking forward to the first one this week. -end ".

Valencia can be a tough circuit on a MotoGP bike because it’s narrow and the bikes have a lot of power for a track. also small but it’s a place that I love. This is where I took my first steps in motorsport, for a Spanish championship. I feel good on the bike, we will work to keep the Same feeling on this circuit and fighting for the top spots again. We’re only 25 points off the championship lead, so I want to be aggressive in these final races in Valencia and Portimão to see what we can achieve ".

There are only three races left for the championship and we know that anything can happen again. This year each Grand Prix has its own story. I have three more races with Ducati and, as always, I will do my best until the end ".

I know my results have been really good and I hope to continue on this trend, but I just want to keep working like I always do and just see what that’s happening. I’ve had some good results already in Valencia so I’m happy to get back on track and see what we’re up to this weekend. ".
