JapaneseGP : Rossi left with 'pain everywhere 'after heavy race crash

Valentino said he was left with "pain everywhere" following early race crash.

The yamaha rider suffered a mojor highside at turn 7 on the sixth lap, running in ninth place.

Rossi earlier had crash on saturday in FP4, fortunately avoiding any further damage to the right leg.

Rossi said his race crash was worse, avoided damaging his leg again, but feeling pain all throught his body.

"It was a big crash this time," recalled Rossi of the accident. "More [than Saturday's crash].

"I was behind [Aleix] Espargaro and tried to not give up, because I could keep his pace. But I had zero grip, I was like on ice.

"It was very fast. When I realised, I was already flying. Very lucky that the leg is ok. I have pain everywhere, but not a lot.

"We struggled a lot all weekend, it was very difficult because we never had good grip, especially on the rear.

"We need to try to understand why."

The Yamaha rider said he thinks the battle between the pair could go down to the final race in Valencia, as Dovizioso cut the gap in the standings to 11 points with victory.

"It was a great battle, very good for the sport that the two opponents are the strongest now and they can fight very hard," said Rossi.

"It was a great race. It's a great victory for Dovizioso and maybe the [championship] fight can arrive in Valencia."
