Paolo Simoncelli feels like a hyena

Paolo Simoncelli feels ‘angry (actually the nice manager uses a more colorful term, ed.) like a hyena’ and says it clearly commenting on what happened in Argentina. “I am disappointed, disappointed and sorry, after an exaggerated comeback, from the 19th position up to play for the podium, Rossi at the ‘last lap thwarts everything with a senseless maneuver indeed, with a whole last lap without sense,” adds the Sic58 Squadra Corse boss.

“Riki is like an ‘on-off’ switch, on or off, all the races where he was doing beautiful things (Jerez, Sepang, Thailand where he got to the podium but could have won) he failed to win the coveted results. When the bike goes and the rider also, the problem becomes even bigger because you don’t know how to come to terms with it. It’s a pity we can’t help him to be more concrete, how do you teach him to make the most sensible choice at the right time? By now some experience and tactical sense should have been learned,” Simoncelli added.
