“I think it’s interesting to see how we can handle again Valentino and me on the same team and the same bike,” commented the Spaniard. “I’m very interested to see what is going on. And for me, it’s a big pleasure to be teammate with him again.
“I have a lot of respect for Valentino. For me it is a pleasure to be again with Valentino, two more years with the same bike. So for me, everything is positive.”
