Valentino rossi begins to see the light at the end of the tunnel. In the last hours the Italian received the nod from the Yamaha Petronas team, more precisely from his boss, Razlan Razali. After a series of improvements, the 2020 runners-up appear to have found some hope of returning to the top spots in the Spanish Grand Prix: «We want to win the title with him», they assure.
Valentino had a difficult start to the season. After a fourth place in the ranking ofl Qatar Grand Prix, everything seemed to be going on rails for the Italian. However, after several performance drops and an accident at the Grand Prix of Portugal, their situation was complicated.
Before starting the 2021 season, Valentino had anticipated that the results of the first races would be essential for his continuity in MotoGP. However, Razali confirmed that the improvements will change the nine-time champion’s mind. In addition, he assured that they will seek to fight for the constructors ‘and drivers’ titles with Rossi’s hand.
«The objective is to win the title with Valentino and with (Franco) Morbidelli. I think the two make a great couple, they are also good friends. We will try to encourage Valentino Rossi to try new solutions ”, said Razali in the last hours, according to the Spanish newspaper Marca. Razali still has his hopes intact, so the arrival of improvements will be essential for his championship.
Everything is possible as we saw last year. We were at the top until we had problems. We need to make sure this team’s story remains exciting, not just because of Valentino’s presence. We want Frankie to keep winning and we want Vale to win too. This is the objective for this year, then we will see what happens ».
