Franco Morbidelli: "I can't wait to get back underwater"
Franco Morbidelli recounts his MotoGP season, which started badly, continued with great difficulty but, in the end, ended with a ray of light that bodes well
I always look on the bright side of things,' Franco said in the interview with Zam, 'with a smiling eye, I have always been like that, it makes me feel good.
On the season: "It was very hard, the new bike was difficult to absorb, we spent the first part of the championship struggling to adapt the bike to me, but it didn't work. So we spent the second one making me adapt to the bike and it paid off."
Here is the ray of light: "In the last two races the level was very very good, I was fast at the end of the race in Valencia. I am happy that I have adapted more to the bike, this is a good base for 2023".
He doesn't lack the desire to work to become competitive again: "I can't wait to get back underwater, that is, to think about the bike, about the races. This means that the end of the season has left us in a positive way".
What do you remember about this championship? "I remember the battles between Fabio and Pecco, they did a fantastic job and played it out until the last race".
But did the strongest rider win? "The one who deserved it most won," Franco's answer.
A very interesting reflection on travelling: 'We see many places even if not with the necessary depth, because we don't have the time. We still get an idea by getting to know new cultures and different styles. I like to go to Brazil or Argentina because I feel South America a lot'.
And one bad thing about travelling so much? "Not the waiting between flights, I get to enjoy the journey. The bad thing is when there are flights early in the morning. Waking up early is something I struggle with, I sleep a lot, 8-10 hours but even more'.
