F1 Champion – The former manager of the Ferrari test team reveals that in 2004 Valentino Rossi was quick to pass in F1. Suggestion, irony and a bit of hope. These are the main ingredients that have characterized the candidacy of Valentino Rossi replacing the new F1 champion, Nico Rosberg. The new F1 world champion decided to leave Mercedes. The German won his first and only title. But he will not race anymore the next World Championship. An unexpected decision that is doing much talking. In fact, Toto Wolff must choose a worthy heir of the F1 champion.
Wolff must find a new F1 Champion
Wolff said jokingly. The Doctor response was quick and immediate. “Yes, he got my number. I’m waiting for him.” And imagination of the fans have no limits. But this is utopia. Yes! Because the Italian rider is already focused on the new MotoGP season. He will try to win his tenth title.
In the past, however, Valentino Rossi was close to go from two to four wheels. “We prepared a full programme at the end of which Vale was ready to race in F1.” said Luigi Mazzola, the Ferrari test team manager from 1995 to 2007. A sensational revelation that would change completely the history, particularly that of MotoGP. It would lose maybe permanently its brighter star.
Ferrari or Mercedes?
Valentino Rossi loves the four wheels. The Doctor wins the Monza Rally Show again and few years ago he tried Ferrari on the track. I would see Valentino on a F1 car. Ferrari or Mercedes? It’s the same. It is normal that the “Italian Red” charm is greater. But I would see him on any F1 car. However, now Vale must think about the future. In 2017, he will try to win the tenth title. The last true goal of his great driving career.
