This will be his first time

The arrival of an unprecedented show of Valentino Rossi from the MotoGP circuit. This will be the first time for the Tavullia champion.

Pecco Bagnaia is the driver of the moment, even if he’s not leading the World Championship in Class One. 30 points separate it from Fabio Quartararo, the title holder and leader, but reaches Aragon MotorLand after four straight victories and aims for fifth. The Desmosedici GP has proven to be a winning weapon for the world title attack, but the four zeros collected in the early part of the season come at a heavy cost.

Vice Champion MotoGP He is trying to catch up with rival Yamaha, six races may not be enough, but a lot will depend on the outcome of the next round in Aragon. The eastern tracks will be a big question mark for everyone, as these tracks don’t collect data from the 2019 season, so it will be like starting from scratch for everyone. In a season where Ducati can count eight bikes, the destination for the World Builders Championship is obvious, but at Borgo Panigale they are aiming straight for the title riders.

It is not easy for Piedmont from VR46 Academy. In a long interview with Sky Sport MotoGP, he remembers how useful and important it is to have a legend like Valentino Rossi During training and in constant telephone contact. “I asked Valentino to coach me, but he still didn’t feel like it. We’ll see in the future if he can help me again. I asked him if he would come to some races, to see me from the outside and encourage me as a coach, he replied that when he comes he will help me. Hopefully that will come more often in 2023“.

Pecco Bagnaia in close harmony Also with Casey StonerWhose friendship was strengthened after participating in the garage last season in Portimao and Valencia. On the eve of every GP, the Australian tries to give some useful advice to better deal with the design, which is more of a superstitious question than a technical one. But if it was necessary to mention the names of other masters, the Turin driver would have no doubts: Dani Pedrosa E Jorge Lorenzo. “I think Stoner and Rossi could be two big advantages in the coaching role, and the same goes for Pedrosa.“.

The Majorcan pentacampion even won the Ducati Desmosedici, interrupting the dream when the results began to emerge. “Lorenzo has a better view of things than others, he is different“.But the hope is that one day Valentino Rossi will be more committed to his side.”If I can bring Rossi with me as a coach, that would be great, he always gets to see things very well, even from home.“.
