Valentino Rossi, Pedro Acosta makes illustrious comparison with Marc Marquez

During an intervention on the television program 'El Hormiguero', GasGas rookie Pedro Acosta, among the various topics covered, bluntly analyzed his extraordinary start to the season, as thanks to his third place in Portimao è he has already become the youngest rider to stand on the podium in MotoGp, beating Marc Marquez. During the interview, in addition, the young Spanish centaur also wanted to comment on the duels he had with the former Honda during the first two rounds. 

"Overtaking Marquez in Qatar è was more difficult than è it seemed from television. It was my first race, the team told me to bring out character and I did. I did the same maneuvers to Marc that he did to Valentino Rossi in his rookie year" began the GasGas centaur.

"I was 16 years old when I debuted in MotoGP and something è changed. The first season è was very good, while the second I could not find the right feeling. Now I am different. I have fun and I get paid for what I love to do. There'è no better thing" continued the Spanish rookie.

"I have a very big ego. On Youtube I often watch my videos and during the week I analyze my performance to try to improve more and more. I am a driver who tends to light up easily on the track with the risk of creating contact, but so far I have not had any reprimands from Race Direction. Compared to car racing we on motorcycles in overtaking risk getting hurt, è like looking death in the face and seeing who raises the crest more" added the 19-year-old Iberian.

"I have no expectations for the continuation of the season. I will face every race with the knowledge that for me it will be an opportunity to test myself. I hope to continue in the same way as in the first races and take more satisfaction" Pedro Acosta&quoted.
