A few days ago he had already anticipated that he will try to race in 2022, together with Petronas. “I don’t know the percentage to renew. I hope it is not my last year, but it will depend a lot on the results, for sure ”, said Rossi.

The tests weren’t so bad and we’ll see how it goes on a racing weekend. “
On the other hand, he was incredulous to see that he is still active after several years in the category. “Saying 26 seasons is saying something that makes you think a lot. It is usually better to be focused on the present and the future. I’m sure I’ve changed a lot, because it’s a long time. I have gotten older and I have different feelings, but the passion for motorcycles and the MotoGP World Championship is the same ”, said an excited Valentino.
Despite the fact that Valentino is the most famous on the grid, he knows that he is not here to fight the title, although he does not lose hope. “Everyone gives everything to win in a factory team and in a satellite team and you have the pressure. The difference is that there are fewer people around, but the atmosphere doesn’t change much. I am very happy to have Franco Morbidelli as a partner. It is a great motivation for me ”, he emphasized to finish.
