The motor world, and especially motorcycling, was very shaken by the rumors that were made known in the last hours. The most surprising was the possibility that this Thursday, Valentino rossi announce your retirement from Moto GP, leaving your bike to Andrea Dovizioso. However, from the Yamaha Petronas team they denied it, although not officially.
The Head of the Yamaha Petronas team, Razlan Razali published a small, but forceful message on his Facebook account, burying the rumors installed by the German media Speedweek. However, from Valentino Rossi and the Yamaha team there was no official statement on the situation.
Valentino Rossi is summoned to the press conference of the pilots, which is usual in the previous one of each Grand Prix of Moto GP. However, the eyes will be on each statement that ‘Ok’ and that surely the journalists will put a lot of emphasis. One of those who denied this news to some media was the board of the academy led by Rossi.
«We are not thinking of Dovizioso for 2021 ″, published Razlan Razali. This message banished the possibility of Andrea Dovizioso making it to Yamaha’s satellite team next year. For his part, Rossi does not want to be a Yamaha “employee” rider. If not, he wants to be an official pilot of the Japanese factory. For his part, Dovizioso has offers as a test driver.
Meanwhile, Rossi does motocross
For his part, in the last hours, Valentino Rossi is only dedicated to continuing training for the Misano Grand Prix. “Racing on this track is very special for me. It is very close to my house, only 10 kilometers down the road. It’s very easy for me to get to the track and it’s also comfortable to be so close to home, ”said Rossi. However, this time he chose to take up motocross at his ranch. The Italian published images on Wednesday morning on his social networks.
