The latest news regarding Valentino Rossi is really important. Splendid news also for its pilots
Valentino Rossi now competes with cars but has never completely abandoned the world of racing MotoGP, thanks to the team he manages together with his trusted friend, Uccio Salucci. The Mooney VR46 it is now a point of reference in the premier class of motorcycling.
The last one Misano Grand Prix brought immense joy to Valentino Rossi, present on the Marco Simoncelli circuit to observe his riders up close. Marco Bezzecchi he regained the verve of his best days and, despite a sore arm, managed to bring home a double second place between Saturday (Sprint) and Sunday.
The Mooney VR46 can smile at the result achieved on the Romagna Riviera, also being able to count on ninth place Luca Marini, protagonist at times during the weekend. Obviously the fact of being able to count on a motorbike Ducati (even if from last year) is bearing extraordinary fruit. Bez fits perfectly with the GP22 and, for the moment, is third in the drivers’ standings. Thinking about the World Championship is not forbidden, but with a Bagnaia (and a Martin) like this it becomes really hard.
Mooney VR46, Gigi Dall’Igna’s announcement on Valentino Rossi’s team
The important aspect for Vale and his boys is to continue to grow and improve, to then aim even higher in the near future. The idea that she had spread around the paddock, with a certain insistence, in recent months is that the Mooney VR46 could change livery and supplies. To explain better, an agreement with a was hypothesized new sponsor and a return to the collaboration between Rossi and Yamaha.
Valentino has always been very honest about this, reiterating that beyond the brand he would always have wanted a competitive bike for his team. Seeing the results achieved by Iwata, the time for this leap does not seem to have come yet.
2024, among other things, already includes a contract signed with Ducatiwho she is delighted to maintain her partnership with VR46, as with Pramac and Gresini. The engineer Dall’Ignathe father of the Ducati MotoGP project, declared in a recent interview with Speedweek: “Yamaha certainly wants to collaborate with Valentino and his team again in MotoGP. At the moment, however, our relationship is truly excellent. Both the drivers and the team are happy with our partnership.”
Therefore, at least for 2024, no changes can be seen on the horizon. We’ll see.
