I expected this to happen, since Herrin was having an awful season, but I thought he'd at least get to finish his awful season.

Passionate crowds await MotoGP™ at Misano
As one of the most colourful events on the calendar, the visit to Misano always produces a fantastic atmosphere with the passionate and vociferous crowd supporting the World Championship’s numerous Italian competitors as they battle for victory.

Ahead of the visit to the Rimini coast, the win by World Champion and runaway standings leader Marc Marquez at Silverstone was the 11th time this year he has stood on the top step of the podium.

That triumph matched the record of MotoGP victories in a single season that was achieved by Valentino Rossi in both the 2002 and 2005 seasons. Another win for Marquez this year and he will equal the all-time record for most wins in the premier-class in a single season, currently held by Mick Doohan from 1997.

Furthermore, victory for Marquez at Misano would edge him closer to retaining his title, with a distinct possibility that the remarkable young Spanish rider could secure the 2014 championship crown in front of his home fans at the following round at MotorLand Aragon.

Looking to stop Marquez again, as the only other rider to have a won a premier class race this season, his Repsol Honda teammate Dani Pedrosa was off the podium in fourth place last time out at Silverstone – unable to repeat his Brno heroics.

Meanwhile, following his third place finish at Silverstone, Valentino Rossi has now scored a total of 4987 points across all classes during his Grand Prix career. If he finishes in fourth place or higher at Misano - his home track - Rossi will become the first rider ever to reach the milestone of 5000 career points in GP racing.

The most successful rider at Misano since racing returned to the circuit in 2007 is Rossi’s Movistar Yamaha MotoGP teammate Jorge Lorenzo, with four victories: the 250cc GP in 2007 and in MotoGP for the last three years. Lorenzo had a great battle with Marquez at the British Grand Prix and will be determined to register his first victory of the year at the Italian circuit this weekend.

As an Italian rider on an Italian machine Andrea Dovizioso is sure to be given great support at Misano as he continues his hard work with the Ducati Team, whilst his teammate Cal Crutchlow will also be aiming for a good result. Between the Brno and Silverstone rounds Ducati tested at Misano, with Andrea Iannone of the Pramac Racing Team also present, meaning they will have plenty of relevant data available.

Elsewhere, Leon Camier is set to make a fourth consecutive substitute appearance for the Drive M7 Aspar team in place of the recuperating Nicky Hayden. Camier just missed out on the points in 16th place at his home round at Silverstone and will relish another chance to race at the top level.

Marquez ready to continue title quest at Misano
Marquez, winner of 11 of the 12 races held to date, gave no option of victory to his rivals at the most recent round in England and is back at his best heading to a track where one year ago he placed second.

The runaway series leader has won three times at Misano in the smaller classes and a MotoGP™ triumph on Sunday at the Gran Premio TIM di San Marino e della Riviera di Rimini would edge him closer to defending his title.

“It was nice to be back on the top step of the podium in Silverstone, the team did a great job the whole weekend,” commented the Repsol Honda rider. “Now we head to Misano which is a smaller and slower track compared to others on the calendar. We will have to work hard from Friday to get the setup on the bike just right, to suit the demands on braking at this twisty track and let’s hope the weather is also nice.”

Dani Pedrosa, second in the overall standings, also knows what it takes to win at Misano, where he took the victory, pole position and fastest lap in 2010.

“I’m looking forward to Misano this weekend,” Pedrosa stated. “There is always a nice crowd over the three days and a good atmosphere with the Italian fans. Hopefully we’ll have good weather from the Friday and get things going in the right direction. It’s a short lap but intense with many overtaking points and it's quite bumpy, so set up is key. Let’s hope for an exciting race."

Rossi on staying competitive and relationship with Lorenzo
Nine-time World Champion Rossi has been on the podium on eight occasions already this season, compared to six rostrum results in 2013 and believes the evolution of his riding style in recent months has been a key factor.

“First of all, the most significant thing I have changed compared to last year was improving the braking,” Rossi explained. “I’ve also worked a lot on my riding style; after a year with the Yamaha I’ve tried to change my riding style to make it more modern and adapt to the new tyres which have less edge grip. Now you need to use your body more, and move yourself more when leaning.”

Regarding his objectives for the remainder of this season and his aim to stay in front of his Movistar Yamaha MotoGP colleague Lorenzo in terms of points, Rossi added, “We have a very big challenge ahead of us from now to the end of the season, because I am in front of Jorge in the Championship standings, but he will want to catch up, and he is getting stronger. And then we also need to try and beat the Hondas. (Dani) Pedrosa is not very far away in the Championship. These are the main targets we have set now.”

Looking back on his departure from Yamaha at the end of 2010 and the recent seasons of his long career, Rossi added, “It was a mistake to go to Ducati, because I was annoyed with Yamaha. Because after having won (the title) with Yamaha in 2004 and 2005, after so many years in which Yamaha had been struggling, Yamaha decided to bring a very strong teammate, and then I got really annoyed at it. But now I understand I was wrong. Also because the treatment in the Yamaha box has always been very equal.”

“Even in 2008 when Jorge arrived we were always at the same level, and it is still like that. This year Yamaha has made a big effort for me, to create the conditions for me in which I can give my maximum, but they also do their best for Lorenzo, and I can say we are 50 / 50 in terms of importance in the team.”

On the specifics of sharing a box with another hugely talented rider, in the form of 2010 and 2012 World Champion Lorenzo, Rossi said, “I have never had an argument with Lorenzo, we are great rivals but we get on well. There is a good atmosphere in the team even if we are rivals. I think the thing with the exhaust pipe in Assen was a mistake from Yamaha because they had to give one to me and one to him but in the end they gave him two, but it wasn’t not a big problem.”

Finally, Rossi acknowledged that only by tasting victory again will he be totally satisfied with his current work. He admitted, “I am happy but not one hundred per cent because I need to win. I would be lying if I tried to deny it.”

Riders look ahead to Misano contest with excitement
On the back of his Silverstone victory, which edged him closer to retaining the MotoGP title, Repsol Honda rider Marquez previewed the Misano weekend saying, “It will be tough here, especially with Valentino at home. Jorge is getting stronger every time and he has been very strong here. Dani (Pedrosa) also, he’s second in the championship, so I have to manage the gap over him. If we can fight for the victory it’s what we’ll do.”

Movistar Yamaha MotoGP man Rossi is truly on home territory this weekend, with his home town of Tavullia being just a few kilometres from the circuit. He stated, “I’m happy about the start of the second half of the season. Jorge and Marc are very strong and Jorge is coming back very strong. They had a bit more in Silverstone than us so the target is to start strong from Friday. It’s the home GP so there are great emotions as it is very close to my house. It’s a good track for me and Yamaha. Jorge won the last three years so we know we can be there.”

For his part, Lorenzo is not counting on his previous excellent results at Misano to give him a head start over his rivals. “The past doesn’t give you any advantage for this year, so we all start from zero. I don’t why it works well for us, maybe the chicanes or the fast corners. Hopefully we can keep the tradition alive.”

For Ducati Team rider Dovizioso as an Italian rider on an Italian bike he will have plenty of support this weekend. He noted, “In Silverstone we were very close to the podium so we have to start aggressively here from FP1. With the hard spec tyre we made a test here before Silverstone and our pace was great.”

For MotoGP rookie Redding of the GO&FUN Honda Gresini team it is another chance to ride for the first time at the circuit on a premier class machine. The Open Honda equipped Englishman said, “I thought Silverstone would be really hard but it was ok. Hopefully here will be good, we should be able to make up a bit with the soft tyre. The limit in MotoGP is crazy, there is no limit. I’m still building and building. You think you’re there for a minute then someone catches you and you have to push more.”

The third Italian rider to speak in the press conference was Octo IodaRacing Team’s Petrucci, who acknowledged, “It’s my third year in MotoGP. I made a step from the first to the second year, but I stepped backwards this year! It’s very difficult this year and we started at the first race with a lot of problems. The bike is really new. Then I broke my wrist and I still have to go to the Clinica after every session. It’s tough.”

Dovizioso handles wet conditions best on opening day
Dovizioso (Ducati Team) put in a best time of 1’49.195 in a rain affected FP2 to lead the way despite a crash early in the session. Hernandez (Energy T.I. Pramac Racing) produced a best time of 1’50.310 in the morning to lead FP1 and was second overall, but did not improve in the afternoon practice which he finished fifth.

Pedrosa was second in FP2 and third best overall with a time of 1’50.356 on the Repsol Honda RC213V. Marc Marquez (Repsol Honda Team) and Danilo Petrucci (IodaRacing Project) completed the overall top five.

Pol Espargaro (Monster Yamaha Tech3), Stefan Bradl (LCR Honda MotoGP), Jorge Lorenzo (Movistar Yamaha MotoGP), Andrea Iannone (Pramac Racing) and Valentino Rossi (Movistar Yamaha MotoGP) were all in the top ten.

Rossi was one of several crashers in the morning session but was not hurt in the accident. Iannone was another morning crasher and he took a heavy ankle blow but was able to continue riding after lunch.

Aleix Espargaro (NGM Forward Racing), Iannone, Bradley Smith (Monster Yamaha Tech 3) and Karel Abraham (Cardion AB) all had FP2 falls too. Teammates Scott Redding and Alvaro Bautista (GO&FUN Honda Gresini) and Alex De Angelis (NGM Forward Racing) fell in the final minutes of practice but were fortunately unharmed.

Vales lid for this race, idea behind it is "Misano always gives us a hand"

Located only a few kilometers from Tavullia, the Misano circuit has a special meaning for Rossi, both because of fans declaring their affection, and because of the familiarity he has with the track where he first started riding.

On the right and left sides of the carbon helmet PistaGP, Rossi carries the words "Misano ci dà una mano", meaning "Misano helps you".

Rossi feels a close tie to his homeland and his roots, so he decided to include typical elements of his original environment in the design.

The helmet is characterised by a light-blue background, and, in bright and fluo colors, it features several unique marks.

These include handprints of the mechanics of the Movistar Yamaha MotoGP team, the prints of his beloved dogs Cesare and Cecilia, together with those of his red cat Rossano; the lip marks of the women of his life – his mother Stefania and his girlfriend Linda; and, last but not least, the fingerprint of his friend and designer Aldo Drudi, who has always supported him throughout these creative experiences.

First pole of 2014 for Lorenzo at Misano
At a track where he has a phenomenal record – with three wins in his last three visits – Lorenzo (Movistar Yamaha MotoGP) sped around the Misano layout with a 1’33.238 lap time to grab his first pole since Motegi 2013.
Just 0.051s behind Lorenzo, Iannone (Pramac Racing) matched his best ever MotoGP™ qualifying result, despite a fall on Friday which saw him take a heavy ankle knock.

Completing the front row at his home track, nine time World Champion Rossi (Movistar Yamaha MotoGP) qualified in third – his best grid result since he was also third in Australia last season.

Meanwhile, for the first time this season World Champion Marc Marquez (Repsol Honda) qualified off the front row, lapping 0.122s down on Lorenzo’s pole time in fourth place.

On the other side of the Repsol Honda garage Dani Pedrosa slotted his RC213V into fifth spot on the grid, with a time just 0.058s slower than that of Marquez.

A further 0.021s margin behind Pedrosa, Andrea Dovizioso (Ducati Team) completed the second row.

The third row of the grid for Sunday’s round 13 contest will comprise brothers Pol Espargaro (Monster Yamaha Tech3), Aleix Espargaro (NGM Forward Racing) and Englishman Bradley Smith (Monster Yamaha Tech3).

Stefan Bradl (LCR Honda MotoGP) heads row four in tenth following a crash in the session which he escaped unharmed. The German had made it through from Q1 along with Yonny Hernandez (Energy T.I. Pramac Racing) who qualified 11th, just in front of Alvaro Bautista (GO&FUN Honda Gresini).

Rossi on family, racing, rivals, Honda and Ducati
Having qualified on the front row for Sunday’s race at his home track, Rossi is in a good position to produce another memorable performance in front of the Italian fans.

With the Misano circuit being just a short drive from his home town of Tavullia this is always a special weekend on the MotoGP™ calendar for Rossi, though of course riding at home brings extra responsibility.

He commented, “It’s quite hard. On the one hand it’s really nice because perhaps after talking to you I can go home and eat there, which is obviously convenient, but on the other hand I have so many friends and family who want to come to the race. It’s tricky, you have to manage the situation carefully.”

Regarding who will be there to support him, he was asked if his father Graziano would be at the track. “Actually, he has come to less races this year,” replied Rossi. “He comes when he can and we always talk about the technical side of things. Sometimes he helps to explain how I can ride well or the reason why I might not have beaten someone. It’s always interesting to explain to him what we are doing on the bike and get his point of view.”

About his mother, Rossi added, “She comes to some races, not all of them, but that’s ok. When she comes sometimes I tense up and feel more pressure. She also thinks she knows a lot about bikes, she talks to me about the front tyre, the bike settings and how to go fast on the corners. I always just say, ‘Yes mum, ok, ok!”

Rossi also recognizes that for his brother Luca Marini the going could be tough given that he has such a famous and successful older sibling. “Yes, it is very difficult for him. He has some advantages, but there are also many drawbacks. His choice to become a rider is a brave one. But he's good, he goes very fast. We have a problem, because he is getting too tall, taller than me, but he likes riding, he is passionate.”

Quizzed about his view on this year’s dominance of the premier class by Marc Marquez and the suggestion that when Rossi was similarly dominant on the Honda certain people claimed it was the bike that made the difference, the Italian noted, “Honda are very strong, that's fine; it is probably the best bike at this time. But in any case, Marc, both this year and last has made ​​a difference in a situation exactly the same as when I did well with Honda. The Honda was the best bike, but Gibernau, Biaggi, my teammate, Hayden and Ukawa also had Hondas. But we don’t know if I won because I had the Honda. So I had to go to Yamaha and I think I have shown that I won because I was the strongest.”

Asked about the importance of surrounding himself with a trusted team, just as Marquez has done this year, Rossi commented: “For me that is very important because you need to have good, skilled people doing their jobs around you, of course, but it is also important to have people that you can trust, and there are not many. I like having a family atmosphere when I'm here at the races, because they make me feel calm and I know I can just focus on riding the bike.”

Rossi also took the opportunity to clarify recent quotes he had made where it was interpreted that he had regretted his decision to ride for Ducati for two seasons.

“Honestly, when I was asked again about it I couldn’t remember the comments well. The sentence was within a larger statement. In a certain sense I have not regretted having gone to Ducati, because it was a major challenge and if I had also managed to win with Ducati it would have been something very special, because it was an Italian rider with an Italian bike. But as I said, unfortunately, it was a mistake because I did not win and, therefore, if I had stayed at Yamaha certainly I could have won other races and fought for the title, which I didn’t do with Ducati. But if I had to go back, I would do it again.”

One thing Rossi says he would not do again is put up a wall between his side of the Yamaha garage and Lorenzo’s side.

He explained, “No, I wouldn’t, because it didn’t help. I hoped that, with the wall, the data wouldn’t be transferred between the two teams. But the wall was there and the data was shared. But it was a mistake on my part. It all started because, for all I had done for Yamaha, after so many years that they did not win and then they won again, I expected more recognition. I did not expect them to put Jorge Lorenzo in the team, because Jorge was already very strong.”

“But then over the years and reconsidering it with a cool head, Yamaha did well, they were right, because it is right that a team like Yamaha Factory has two riders who can win and recognition in sport is something relative. But it was right because for Yamaha it was very important to have Jorge Lorenzo and therefore I think they made the right choice. Now I’m very pleased to make a team with him. Also because, at first, the first year, he learned a lot from me, but in these years I am also learning a lot from him and, therefore, the important thing is to try to have the two bikes at the front, to try and beat the Honda and if there are two of us it’s easier. But a teammate is always a rival.”

Finally, Rossi was asked which past riders he would have most liked to have measured himself against. The Doctor replied: "I would have liked to see how Giacomo Agostini rode and certainly Mike Hailwood, who are probably the two greatest ever. But I would have also liked competing against Schwantz and Rainey, Doohan and Lawson. Those 500cc years were really historical.”

Lorenzo reflects on securing his first pole of the year

The MotoGP™ riders had to get up to speed quickly on Saturday, as both of the Friday practice sessions were wet. Lorenzo was within the top three in both dry Free Practice sessions and has an excellent record at Misano having won there for three consecutive years.

Q2 saw Lorenzo challenged by Andrea Iannone (Pramac Racing) for pole position, the Italian taking advantage of his softer tyres and a recent private test at the track. Nonetheless, the Majorcan secured pole with a 1’33.238s lap, 0.051s clear of Iannone.

Teammate Valentino Rossi starts from third. This is Lorenzo’s first pole position since the Japanese Grand Prix last year.

Lorenzo commented, “It seems that Yamaha is working well here as Valentino is going fast too. I pushed the limited like always. I pushed very hard in the first two laps but I didn’t have the perfect lines. In the second run I pushed even harder and I ran wide in the first sector. In the last three sectors I think I made almost a perfect lap. It was very close but I made pole for the first time in almost a year.”

“The important thing is tomorrow, it’s the day we get the points so we have to make a good start and try to lead the race and win. Being on pole gives me a small advantage at the start so I will try to make profit of it and push away in the first laps. It won’t be easy to get away as Vale has a good pace and the others will be there but I’m going to try,” he added.

Equal best MotoGP™ qualifying result for Iannone
Iannone suffered two crashes in the wet on Friday, taking a heavy blow to his ankle. This did not affect the Italian rider when conditions improved, able to lead the way in FP3. Ducati had held a private three day test at Misano prior to Silverstone, the data collected there helping all the Ducati riders recover from the lost track time on Friday.

Jorge Lorenzo (Movistar Yamaha MotoGP) aided Iannone’s qualifying efforts slightly, giving a slip stream to the Italian and his teammate Yonny Hernandez in Q2. This is now the fourth occasion in a row that a Ducati has started from second on the grid, Andrea Dovizioso (Ducati Team) having taken the three previous seconds.

The result also equals Iannone’s best ever MotoGP qualifying result which came earlier in the year at Mugello.

“I am very happy for the front row, it’s important for that race as the start is crucial. I have a good feeling on my bike with the soft tyre, the medium doesn’t feel so great. I had a good feeling in the morning and was able to push hard in the afternoon too,” said Iannone.

He continued, “I don’t know if we can use the soft tyre. I used the soft tyre in the test over race distance and the first five or six laps it’s great. After that it gets a bit more of a difficult decision. I’ll be talking to my crew about it. It’s important we try a different setting and explore the medium tryes more and I need to improve my feeling with them.”

Rossi claims first win of 2014 as Marquez crashes
The home crowd went wild at Misano on Sunday as Valentino Rossi took his first victory since Assen last year, with Jorge Lorenzo and Dani Pedrosa also on the podium, whilst Marc Marquez finished 15th after a crash.
Nine time World Champion Rossi (Movistar Yamaha MotoGP) took the lead in the early laps after getting in front of pole man Lorenzo and then asserting his authority in an early battle with Marquez. On the 10th lap Marquez went down at Rio corner when in second place and whilst he restarted his RC213V he could not achieve more than a solitary point.

Rossi kept the hammer down at the front to eventually win by 1.578s and reach the milestone of 5000 Grand Prix points in style. It is the 107th victory of Rossi’s remarkable career.

Lorenzo rode with determination to take another podium result and finished in second place for the fourth successive race.

Coming from fifth on the grid, Pedrosa (Repsol Honda Team) took his ninth podium finish of the season in third place, crossing the line 1.234s ahead of the hard working Andrea Dovizioso (Ducati Team).

It was another good ride for Dovizioso in front of the home crowd as he got the Ducati across the finish line 5.5s behind winner Rossi. Likewise, Andrea Iannone (Pramac Racing) impressed in fifth place with another solid result.

Rookie Pol Espargaro (Monster Yamaha Tech3) rode well again to secure sixth place, 4.1s ahead of his teammate Bradley Smith.

Alvaro Bautista (GO&FUN Honda Gresini), Cal Crutchlow (Ducati Team) and Yonny Hernandez (Energy T.I. Pramac Racing) completed the top ten.

Mike Di Meglio (Avintia Racing) was an early crasher, as was Danilo Petrucci (Octo IodaRacing Team). Di Meglio suffered a displaced fracture of the fourth and fifth metacarpus of his left hand and will require surgery. Stefan Bradl (LCR Honda MotoGP) also fell out of the top ten. Aleix Espargaro (NGM Forward Racing) crashed on the final lap. All the riders other than Di Meglio were uninjured.

Indeed Super Sic was another spiritual Hand on his back pushing him thru to hold his lead . I just mentioned in the Handprint thread that the. Misano 2014 Helmet will sell out specially with Vale's podium the masses are anxiously waiting for Misano 2013 Pink Floyd **Wish You Were here ** Lid early October is the promised date hopefully Handprint release date won't be that late ( a year from now )

Marquez crashes chasing Rossi and finishes 15th
World Championship leader Marc Marquez made an uncharacteristic error on lap ten of the Misano race and lost the front end at Rio corner, costing him a chance to fight for the win.
Marquez was able to restart but only managed to climb back to 15th and take one Championship point.

After a promising start, Marquez steadily progressed up to second, after battling with Jorge Lorenzo and Valentino Rossi. However, as Marquez pushed to try and stay with race leader Rossi, he made a small mistake and lost the front at turn four at a fairly low speed, with the bike spinning out. He was able to pick the bike up but had trouble getting it started again. The race marshals arrived and managed to bump start him, but by this point the pack had disappeared.

The runaway standings leader pushed hard to catch the back markers and was able to match the lap times being set by the front runners, but the distance was too great.

Marquez maintains his lead in the World Championship, but the gap is now decreased to 74 points over second placed Dani Pedrosa, who finished third in the race.

Looking at things from a positive perspective Marquez said, “I’m happy with how today went, despite the crash due to my first mistake of the season, because yesterday I did not think that I would be capable of sticking with Valentino and Jorge. They had a little bit more pace, and today we were able to get fairly close to them.”

“I saw the possibility of fighting with Valentino for the victory, but that was not possible in the end because of the mistake; I was riding over the inside of the rumble strip and that meant that I lost the front. Luckily I was able to rejoin the race, continue with a good pace and score a point that could always come in handy in the future.”
