One of the most special seasons is coming for Valentino Rossi. The Italian can face his last season as a professional driver and he will do so alongside Franco Morbidelli in the team Petronas Yamaha. Rossi will seek to return to the top of the grid of MotoGP, after a very difficult year with the Japanese brand.
Far from the limelight, Valentino Rossi (and Yamaha) decided it was time to get away from the factory team. After more than fifteen years, Rossi will once again be part of a satellite team and this time he will do it instead of Fabio Quartararo on the Petronas team. Although it will not be the same team, Rossi will have the same bike as the official team.
Through a video, the Petronas team unveiled the details of the new outfits of Valentino and Franco Morbidelli, its two pilots. The Italian was the one that attracted the most attention. With a variant of colors, the new protector that Rossi will wear promises to be one of the most beautiful of his extensive sports career.
At the rear, Rossi will carry a very exciting memory. In addition to his usual and famous number, the 46, the Italian will have in the number 58 of the remembered Marco Simoncelli. Rossi was one of those most affected after the fatal accident that took the life of the young Italian, who was called to be one of the great promises of MotoGP.
Will you win again?
Graziano Rossi, Valentino’s father, believes the 42-year-old will have a great chance by changing teams this year. ‘He has the ability to win intact. Going to Petronas from an emotional and sporting point of view can be a step forward. You will have first class equipment, without the responsibility of the official pilot. I am very optimistic this year. Franco Morbidelli will also be there, who will be a great motivation, ”said the father of ‘Vale’.
