“Without a doubt, having these virtual races is a positive thing both for us the riders and for the fans. It’s a very fun show, and through it those watching have a good time and forget about the current situation.
I regularly play the MotoGP videogame, since in addition to being fun it also allows me to train mentally, recognizing the circuits. However, this Sunday’s game will be different; it will be much more special because, as with any contest I enter, my goal will be to fight for the podium and do my best.”
