Valentino rossi he is in the final stage of his sports career. The Italian signed a one-year contract with the team Yamaha, which suggests that this is the last season of the extensive career in MotoGP. Over the course of all the years at the Motorcycle World Championship, ‘Vale’ has achieved nine world titles and will seek the 10th in 2021.
While he knows that race performance is no longer the same as in recent years, Rossi believes that the tenth title may come next year if he has the tools available to do so. “It is always the main objective, but you have to win races, be competitive, make podiums and be among the protagonists of Sunday in 2021,” he said
Rossi responded to the microphones of ‘Sky Sports’ and assured that he was thinking about retirement, although he will announce it in 2021. “I will decide it during next summer. I have not decided to quit yet, it will depend a lot on the results. I hope that next year will run normally, with the correct dates and that there will be a little pause in between, I think that at that moment I will decide, “he said.
Team in MotoGP
The day he leaves the activity, Valentino will not leave the Paddock. This is what he said in the last hours, since he wants to extend the reach of his team Sky VR46. «Years ago I would have said no, but it has been a very nice experience to make the team in Moto3 and then in Moto2 next to Sky. Making the team in MotoGP is something else, you need to structure yourself well, find a lot of money and that is the most difficult thing. Next year we will try to understand how it works with Luca (Marini) and then we will decide whether to do it. But it is not said, you have to see many things first, “he said.
To close, Valentino Rossi criticized those who discredit the championship obtained by Joan Mir in the absence of Marc Márquez. “It is a well deserved championship because it was the best. He has made many podiums. You have to consider that in the first race in Austria I was two seconds ahead, then the race stopped. I have to say that the calendar has made the championship difficult, because we have raced on many tracks at the wrong time. But Mir is the world champion and congratulations to him, “he said.
