​Nine times World Champion Valentino Rossi scored his worst qualifying grid position since 2011 at Philip Island. The ever changing weather at Philip Island forced The Doctor to battle out in Q1 to finish 5th translating to a 15th grid position for the Australian Grand PrixValentino Rossi (P15): “It was a very strange day when it comes to the conditions, because they changed continuously and unfortunately we were never strong starting from this morning. We are a little bit worried because, though we know in these conditions it is difficult for everybody, I never felt the right feeling on the wet and the dry. Yesterday morning we started quite well, but today we had some problems so we start towards the back of the grid. We hope for better conditions because it looks like with our bike we suffer a bit. It depends very much on the pace what happens tomorrow, it looks like when it is very cold we struggle to get the tyres up to temperature and the bike becomes very difficult to ride. Starting from fifteenth is a problem for sure, if you want to try to win it is quite impossible, but if you are fast you can do a good race. So this is what we have to try.”
