Only a few minutes after Viñales spoke, Valentino Rossi sat down in front of the same auditorium. "Yes, we certainly paid for not having been at the test two weeks ago," was the first thing out of his mouth. And he went on to explain what in his opinion had happened over the weekend, and the problems he has with the 2017 M1. It sounded something like: Listen to me, Maverick, and I'll explain. "It's sad that the two races I won last year, Jerez and here in Barcelona, have been our two worst races this year."
