Valentino Rossi says that he feels confident about winning this weekend's race in Sepang as he targets second spot in the MotoGP World Championship.

Yamaha's Valentino Rossi feels positives about his chances in Sepang this weekend as he battles teammate Jorge Lorenzo for second place in the MotoGP World Championship.

Marc Marquez clinched the crown earlier this month, but Rossi boosted his chances of grabbing second spot by winning in Australia last weekend.

"I love Sepang, it's one of my favourite tracks, but the race is always very difficult, also physically because it is a little too hot for a MotoGP race," The Gulf Today quotes Rossi as saying.

"But the track is fantastic and the tests in the winter weren't too bad so we have to try to do like this weekend and try to be as strong as possible for Sunday's race."

Rossi has won six premier-class races in Malaysia.
