Known the decision of the spanish Maverick Vinales to leave the team Yamaha de a MotoGP at the end of the year -possibly to emigrate to Aprilia- the Japanese brand needs to find a new partner for the French Fabio Quartararo, leader of this tournament of the queen category of the Motorcycle World Championship.
It is inevitable to assume that one of those who, surely, is on the list of candidates is the Italian Valentino Rossi, legend within the fretboard brand and currently competing with the satellite team Petronas SRT.
Rossi, 42, is already close to retirement. In fact, he assured that in the recess of the current season he will make a decision about what he will do with his life beyond 2021. The option to retire at the end of the year is latent, but also that of continuing at least one more year.
In that sense I could do it with his own team, which will debut in the senior class of the World Cup in 2022 with Ducati; Although Viñales' departure before his time (he had a two-year contract) would allow him to put a finishing touch to his campaign together with one of the brands that gave him the most joy: with Yamaha he achieved four of his seven titles in the major category .
During the weekend of Dutch Grand PrixIn Assen, much was said about the decision that Viñales was going to make. And Rossi himself anticipated any speculation. "It seems that there will be some change that is not expected, but that does not change anything because my decision is related to the results", assured the Doctor ...
But beyond his words, the Rossi-Quartararo duo at Yamaha is exciting. Especially the fans of '46.
