At 42, the multiple motorcycle champion, the Italian Valentino Rossi, begins a new stage in its sports campaign in MotoGP next to the team Petronas SRT to which he arrives after several years as an official pilot Yamaha .
"2021 is a new challenge for me. I'm at Yamaha, but with a new team ”, explained the Doctor during the official presentation of the team, in which he will have his compatriot and friend as a partner Franco Morbidelli.
Despite the fact that Vale no longer has the status of “official”, the Petronas SRT, which is a Yamaha satellite, showed great potential in 2020 thanks to the French Fabio Quartararo, who just replaced Tavullia in the Japanese manufacturer's team.
Finally, Rossi made his objectives clear: “I want to be competitive, fight to win races and podiums and a good position at the end. The bike will be the same, so it will be fun ”.
