About
RICARDO TORMO CIRCUIT

Named after the late 50cc double World Champion, the Circuit de la Comunitat Valenciana Ricardo Tormo has been the backdrop of the MotoGP season finale for years. Welcoming the riders back from a four-race flyaway campaign, it’s known to boast a relaxed atmosphere until the lights go out on Sunday for one last scrap, even if there aren’t any titles at stake anymore. In the stadium-like facility, spectators will be able to follow their favorite around the 4-kilometer-long track which consists predominantly of left-hand turns.

Back on track after his first DNF of the season in Australia, Malaysia didn’t come with the desired payback for Danilo who found himself bouncing around the Sepang track due to tire issues. With his data looking more like that of an MXGP rider than a smooth MotoGP ride needed to go fast around the Sepang International Circuit. With Malaysia done and dusted, his crew worked hard to transform data-learnings into a solid start of the last race of the 2019 season.

About this page

“Malaysia was another very difficult race. I was making a comeback towards the end but in the last five laps, I felt a very strong vibration at the rear and I couldn’t continue pushing hard. In the race, I struggled a lot because my back was still hurting after the crash in Australia, and I couldn’t do any more.

It’s a pity about the problem I had at the end of the race, but in any case, I tried to bring home the best result. Now that we are back in Europe, I am looking to push one more time after the last few races where I had some bad luck.”

Having been a championship contender until late in the season - despite missing a few rounds due to injury - Augusto Fernández saw the crown going to his contender in Sepang while he was struggling in the race. Looking at three wins -so far! - in his first full season in the intermediate class, Augusto has no reason not to head home with a smile on his face for the last round of the year.

Classmate, Bo Bendsneyder, started off promising in Malaysia, but was forced out of contention due to an early crash. With last year’s Valencia round missed due to injury, he’s looking to make this one count.

“The weekend in Malaysia was very hard, with a very difficult race on Sunday. In the warm-up, it seemed that we had found the right feeling; we managed to be competitive and put in fast laps, and we had a good pace. But when we started the race we only changed the tire and everything has changed again. I do not know what happened with the tires this tour, but hey ... it was difficult.

I tried to stay on the track giving the maximum to score as many points as possible under the circumstances. In the end, four points are better than zero, but it's not where we must be. The last races have been tough on us, but my team has kept working hard so I am determined to give them a good result here “at home” in Valencia, in front of my fans!”

“In Malaysia, the feeling in the warmup was better than the feeling on Saturday, so I had good hope that it could fight inside the top 15. But after one lap, it was all over with the crash. The start was good and in the first lap I was able to make up a few places. I was behind Bulega, who came out of the turn a gear too high, so that we entered the first straight too slowly.

Someone came by, who I wanted to catch up with immediately. I did not get the bike in second gear properly. As a result, I went too fast into the last corner and I lost the front. It was a disappointing result in the end, especially for my crew who worked very hard, but I am in Valencia to make up for this and end the season in a positive way. Last year I was injured, so this year, I am going to make it count.”

Lorenzo Dalla Porta took no prisoners during the overseas campaign, adding a hattrick of wins to his tally after coming in as runner-up in Thailand, while he already secured the 2019 World Championship title in Australia.

Jaume Masià got the Malaysian crowd on their feet during the race, battling his way through the pack after being forced to start last on the grid due to battery-related issues in the sighting lap. Finishing third in the race won by Lorenzo, he did the unthinkable and took home a well-deserved trophy. Both riders are looking to get off to a quick start, arriving in Valencia with great momentum.

“Malaysia was an amazing race! I have enjoyed as much as I have suffered, but in the end, it has been incredible. I still can’t believe it. Obviously, it hadn’t been my best weekend, because Friday and Saturday had been so tough but then the race was so weird.

I fought my way through the pack, and I am so happy with the result for me and the team. I really wanted to get back on the podium, and this gives me strength and confidence to do well here in Valencia once again!”

About this page

“I’m over the moon after how the flyaways went for us! With a third victory in a row, we went home after winning in Malaysia. That has been the final touch of an incredible month.

So many thanks to the team and to everybody supporting me, I couldn’t have asked for more. With one more race to go, I will give it my best, as always, while I am looking forward to testing my machine for next year after the season!”
