Valentino Rossi will ride for Ducati, writes love letter to his Yamaha
The worst kept secret of the MotoGP season has been made official today: The Doctor will ride a red Ducati for the next two seasons. In parting Valentino hand wrote a "love letter" to his Yamaha M1 and the team.
"It's hard to explain in a few words what my relationship with Yamaha has been for the past seven years. Many things have changed since that far away 2004 but especially her, my M1. At the time she was forlorn mid field MotoGP, derided by most riders and experts. Now, after having helped her grow and improve you can see her there, smiling in her stall, sought after and admired, treated like the belle of the ball...."
You could say it might be a parting note to Jorge Lorenzo too, enjoy the bike I made for you buddy, see you next year!end of post
