Jorge Lorenzo continues to work for his channel Youtube, 99Seconds, where he analyzes each and every one of the races on the calendar of MotoGP. The now retired pilot and category analyst spoke about the current situation of his former teammate and rival in Yamaha, Valentino Rossi. According to Lorenzo, this will be the last season of ‘Il Dottore’ in competition: “Is going to retire“, he claimed.
Lorenzo’s analysis of the German Grand Prix had a main protagonist: Marc Márquez. The five-time World Champion highlighted the return of his former teammate at Honda and assured that “The best returned”, alluding to Márquez. However, and as usual in his analysis, he spoke about Rossi’s poor performances, Maverick Viñales Y Franco Morbidelli, all Yamaha men.
Lorenzo described the performances of Maverick Viñales and Franco Morbidelli as ‘Disappointment’ and assuring that “In MotoGP, if you have problems or are morally ill, you go from winning to finishing last, that’s what happened to Viñales. It is being the worst stage of his sports career. From the outside, it is difficult to assess what is happening in that ‘box’ ”, he stressed without hesitation.
On the other hand, the ex-driver commented that he still cannot see the best version of Rossi. The Italian cannot find the pace he was looking for and the next race will be essential to define his future in the category. After the summer break, Valentino will announce what decision he will make, although everything indicates that it will be the definitive retirement from MotoGP.
“It is very difficult to foresee what will happen. But the feeling it gives me and if I had to bet something is that Valentino is going to retire. That said, I would love to see it as a last run on that Ducati, which would be a major boost for him. Maybe it would give him better feelings than he has been having in recent years with Yamaha. I think this will be his last season, but I may be wrong, “Lorenzo said on his channel.
