Valentino Rossi had told the media he had been impressed by both Monster Tech 3 Yamaha riders. "Zarco made a very good job," he commented afterwards. "Also Folger was fast. I followed him, and he rode very well." Zarco – a sensitive soul, serious and intense – was deeply touched by Rossi's words. He had gone racing after watching Rossi on TV, so to be complimented by his idol was something that left him moved.
