Valentino rossi He has already confirmed that he wants to continue racing at least one more season in MotoGP. The nine-time World Champion has a contract with the team until the end of the season Yamaha petronas, but he has the possibility of negotiating the extension until 2022, ending his sports career at the age of 43, an incredible mark for these times.
Everything indicates that if Rossi’s results change, the Italian will continue one more season in Motorcycling and Yamaha. However, he has other issues to attend to: his team of pilots, the VR46. In the 2021 season, the VR46 made the decision to arrive at MotoGP hand in hand with the team Avintia and with a Ducati, something that could change in 2022.
Loris Capirossi, friend and former teammate of Valentino, was this Monday at an event organized by Aprilia. The Italian brand brought together all the pilots who were linked throughout the last years and made a very special event. There, Capirossi slipped the possibility that Rossi’s team will come to Aprilia as one more satellite team.
«Rossi on Aprilia? why not? Aprilia is Italian, VR46 is Italian, it would be nice, ”Capirossi told the media present at the event. It should be noted that Valentino had the chance to race alongside an Italian team, but his result was not the best. In the 2011 season, Valentino made the decision to leave Yamaha to face the most important challenge: to be champion with Ducati.
Valentino Rossi and Italy are for each other. The Tavullia rider had a dream of achieving a title alongside a brand from his country, and chose Ducati to achieve the feat. In 2011 he came to Ducati, but during the two seasons he was there, he managed just three podiums and a total of 302 points, finishing seventh in 2011 and sixth in 2012.
