“Quartararo replaces Rossi at Yamaha”


Valentino Rossi hoped to show in the first six races of this year that he still belongs in the MotoGP. However, he will no longer be able to win a contract extension with the Yamaha team, as the Japanese have chosen Maverick Vinales and young French talent Fabio Quartararo according to various media. Nine-fold world champion Rossi is therefore set aside at the end of the year.

Rossi recently announced that he would not mind a problem with the second team at Yamaha. That team is led by Wilco Zeelenberg and therefore there is still a chance that “The Doctor” can continue his career in the MotoGP in 2021. The golden times in the royal class of motorcycle racing, however, seem to be behind him.

Quartararo performed excellently with the Petronas Yamaha team in 2019, thereby enforcing a contract with the Yamaha factory team. For a long time the Frenchman was associated with the Ducati team, but in the end he chose the Yamaha team.
