30.Aug.2016, motogp.com 對猴王做了一個專訪,主要是針對後半賽季的目標及整個賽季表現。

我想,「回顧去年的賽事」這件事對猴王來說,是一種不甘心。(照片擷取自motogp.com)
我自認是個情感過於豐富與氾濫的人,看完專訪後我又重看一次2015在Valencia的最後一場比賽,看完後我還是感到很難過,這時候我真的覺得身為一個專業的運動員(或者說:身為一位傳奇的運動員),真的好令人欽佩;作為一個觀賽者的我在面對這樣的結局都感到如此的難過了,實在是無法想像在那個當下他是有多麽的沮喪與難過(可能他比任何人都還想哭吧⋯⋯),但他還是想辦法去克服這樣的心境,然後繼續迎接下一個賽季的到來,如果沒有強大的動機與想要贏的慾望,真的很難做到這種程度。

當時看到這個畫面,眼淚真的是不爭氣地落下啊⋯⋯T_T(照片擷取自motogp.com)

“I have a great motivation because I want to try to win more races and to win the Championship because last year I was very very close,” says the rider from Tavullia. “The feeling was very bad, because I think that the end of last year was not fair. The first two or three weeks it was hard but after the Rally of Monza I returned to racing and in that moment I was like “OK, we forget.” You never forget, but you try to forget. The pressure and the energy that I gave last year was an extreme effort, because we arrived in the last race like this. And if you win, you recover some energy. If you lose, you don’t recover it. So, for me, I paid too much for last year.”-motogp.com

最後起跑這個懲罰,無疑是判了猴王一個死刑⋯(照片擷取自motogp.com)
還記得,當棒棒羅衝過終點線的時候,有多少的猴迷都沈默不語⋯看著猴王最後以P4衝過終點線、那落寞的背影任誰看了都會揪心啊(拭淚)!記得主播也說:「He couldn’t done no more.」當時的他已經做了他所能做的、普渡鯊—Dani Pedrosa 26也是;猴王用盡全力從P23追到P4真的是很棒很棒,不論有心還是無意的想幫助猴王(這裡不得不說,Petrucci的演技實在要多多加強啊XD),這也再再顯示最後這三場的比賽及最後起跑的判決對猴王來說影響有多大、多麽不公平(其實也有一部分要怪猴王自己在澳洲站賽後說的那些言論⋯)

賽後,普渡鯊特地跑到猴王旁邊去給猴王打氣。(我們相信普渡鯊你也是盡了自己的努力嘗試去擊敗棒棒羅的⋯)(照片擷取自motogp.com)

即使現在在面對今年後半賽季,並且目前積分差領先的馬馬克有53分之多,他依然不敢掉以輕心:

“It’s a shame because I have the potential to fight for this Championship,” explains the legend as he assesses the situation heading into the next race. “Because I was unlucky, and also because of my mistakes we are too far now from the top. If in Mugello the bike had not broken; if in Assen it had not rained I was very strong; if in Sachsenring it had not rained I could have fought for the victory… But if, if, if… We have the potential but unfortunately we don’t have enough points. So the target for the next races is to try staying at this level but especially try to bring home more points. With this amount of disadvantage, you cannot think about the future. I will try to do the maximum race by race but, you know, in the sport it’s never finished until it’s finished. So if we give up now, it’s better to stay at home.”

猴王坦承因為自己犯了太多的失誤,即便自己非常具有競爭力但事實就是擺在眼前—他和馬馬克的積分差距就是這麼大!所以現在必須專注在每一場賽事,除了保有現在的積分外,還要試著去慢慢縮減和馬馬克之間的差距。

在MotoGP,還沒到最後一場比賽,那這一切就還是有希望;如果現在就放棄,還不如就待在家吧。

我知道你一直都不曾放棄,真的好希望可以看到你拿下人生第十座世界冠軍獎盃(祈禱)。
Go go Vale!!!!!!!!
