(cafetheology.org) – On Monday it was announced that Michael van der Mark will be the substitute for Valentino Rossi at the MotoGP race in Aragon for Yamaha. The 24-year-old thus unhappily celebrates his debut in the royal class. "I am incredibly excited and am happy about the chance to drive Valentino's bike," the Superbike pilot said in an interview with 'WorldSBK.com'. He has a lot of respect for his job and knows: "Nobody can really replace Valentino." As part of the Misano weekend, Yamaha teammanager Lin Jarvis said that he would choose among four options. After the recovery of Rossi's leg fracture is likely to last longer and he is making a comeback in Japan, Yamaha had to equip a second bike according to the regulations for the next round in Aragon. "I knew they would need a replacement for the next race, so my manager spoke with Lin Jarvis to check out the situation, saying they would need a replacement for Aragon "The Dutchman knows a tough job is waiting for him, because he could not test the Yamaha M1 before. "It's a completely different bike, but I'm very happy to be able to ride one of the best MotoGP bikes in the world, all parts of the bike are slightly different, as are the carbon brakes and the tires what I should expect. " At least the course in Aragon comes to meet him, because he already knows. Superbike team colleague Alex Lowes, brother of Sam Lowes, was also in the narrow selection. He already replaced Bradley Smith last year at Tech 3 and was therefore able to share his experience on the M1 with van der Mark. "He said it was a fantastic bike and I'm going to love it, but it's different, but I'm very happy, I'll feel like a kid for Christmas." Although he is unprepared for the adventure, "There is no doubt about his determination," he said, "if you get such a chance, it does not matter how stressed you are. He also hopes to protect his temporary team-mate Maverick Vinales: "I will be busy getting used to the bike, but I hope Vinales has some tips for me." Van der Mark's main goal: Bike Van der Mark is aware of the responsibility and scope, but he replaces a nine-time world champion: "He does not want to be one of the world's best riders, and it is unfortunate that he can not be in the starting position. " Rossi belongs to the MotoGP, but he is also very happy about this possibility. The Superbike-Pilot would not want to be stuck on his very first MotoGP-application – also because of a lack of experience on the bike. "The team will not put pressure on me, I'll just do my best, I'd like to give them good feedback, what could help them in the rest of the season, that's my main goal."
