Valentino rossi he’s having a lot of bad luck this season. The year 2020 is the worst in the Italian’s sports career, and in the last hours it was confirmed that he has to end very quickly. Rossi again tested positive for COVID-19 in the test prior to Valencia Grand Prix, so it would not be in case of confirmation.
In the last hours a rumor circulated that indicated that Garrett gerloff I was traveling to the Spanish circuit, as there was a positive in Yamaha. However, everything stayed there. Nothing made us suspect that Valentino Rossi was going to test positive again, so this news shook everyone in the Paddock of MotoGP.
It is not yet known if it is a false positive, or the tests carried out a week ago that allowed him to run on Sunday, gave wrong results. There is also the possibility that during the night of Sunday and Tuesday of the new test it has been infected again in the paddock. Some Yamaha engineers had already tested positive in the Valencia preview.
Gerloff is heading to the Ricardo Tormo circuit in case he confirms that Rossi will not be able to be in the Valencia Grand Prix this weekend. The American driver participated in free practice last Friday, after Rossi missed the first part of the weekend after waiting for his second negative in the test.
‘Il Dottore’ failed to score in the last six races. In addition, he left in the first of the season in Jerez. This adds up to seven tests in which he did not harvest units. The only highlight of the year is the podium at the Andalusian Grand Prix, in which he finished third behind Maverick Viñales Y Fabio Quartararo.
