Graziano Rossi, father of Valentino rossi, was a pilot of the World Cup MotoGP during the 70’s and 80’s. That is why his word is more than authorized when talking about what happens in the paddock and in the championship races. This time he had to talk about his son’s performance, who was not the best in the first tests. «This is not himRossi told Men on Wheels.
Valentino had to face several problems in his first two races with the team. Petronas Yamaha. Although he achieved a fourth place in the classification of the first date, his performance in the race was one of the worst. In addition, he registered his worst World Cup start since 2000, adding only four points. His father warns that the idol will find speed again. In addition, he responded to criticism from his friend and champion, Marco Lucchinelli.
Lucchinelli, MotoGP champion in 1981, assured that Valentino should retire and make room for the younger riders. «I have to be honest, I don’t know exactly if he said and what he said. I heard something, but I’m not very knowledgeable. But if Marco wanted to express that thought, it is right for him to do so. You have to speak your mind and Lucchinelli is someone who does it very often, ”said Graziano Rossi.
On the other hand, the former pilot commented that the team must respond to the problems that his son is having, and that in this way he can return to the performance expected by everyone. It’s a bad time. There is no doubt about it. But as I said last year after the bad debut in Jerez, this is not, at least in my opinion, the real Valentino Rossi. There are some problems to solve.
It’s probably a combination of things. And we have to study them. I don’t think we should worry too much. You have to worry just enough “, said Rossi according to the medium ‘Motosan.es’. “Petronas is an important and high-level team. Valentino has experience and Yamaha it will help him », added to finish the father of the nine times champion.
