Commenting on this past season, Capirossi admittted:“It was difficult because we didn’t get the results we expected, but we’re already looking ahead to next year, we have to keep working and keep believing.
We need strong support from the company, and hope to find it in February tests, where we’ll have a completely new bike, because now the bike is uncompetitive and without a competitive bike and advanced electronics you can’t win.
”Asked about what he thought of Valentino Rossi in Ducati in 2011, Capirossi replied:“I’m not envious, and I’m sure that they (Rossi and Ducati) could do great things together.
