Doctor Rossi Team – Valentino Rossi has a valid contract with Yamaha until the end of 2018. But there were already those who think of a possible future of the Doctor with his team in the MotoGP championship.
The opportunity of Carmelo
Lately, Carmelo Ezpeleta confirmed to the press several times the will and the opportunity given to Doctor to form his own team in MotoGP, although the Dorna has no more intention to grant more licenses. In an interview with motorsport.com, the Italian champion said he was very happy to have this opportunity, but it doesn’t seem to be the real intention of Valentino Rossi.
Doctor Rossi Team? Maybe in the future
“For the moment I am not going to form a Doctor Rossi team in MotoGP. Maybe ten years from now when we get older. Now we prefer to focus on young drivers.” On the proposal by the boss of Dorna, Valentino Rossi responds. “Carmelo told me that he would be very happy if I created a Doctor Rossi Team in MotoGP, so am I. But right now is not in our plans. We’re still not big enough. In addition, our idea is to try to help young Italian riders. Moto2 and Moto3 are enough already.”
Rossi’s young talent
Meanwhile, Rossi’s young talent runs very well both in Moto2 and in Moto3 VR46. But we can remember even the rider of VR46 Master Camp and the Academy. Asian drivers are faster ones and appeared to be new interesting elements which could open to other future developments of the MotoGP’s circus.
The Tenth Title
Aside from the Doctor Rossi Team, Vale is already thinking about next MotoGP race at Le Mans. The Doctor must do better in Jerez and try to restart his run toward her real goal, the tenth title. It won’t be easy. Because Marc Marquez and Honda seems stronger. And then there’s seems to be the nocità of the year, his teammate Maverick Vinales.
