Valentino Rossi: Back to the Future with Yamaha
Back to the future for the Doctor after his disastrous time at Ducati. Promises of Audi endurance seats could not keep the seven time champion in Borgo Panigale, Valentino will ride a Yamaha for 2013-14.
Rossi won four world championship on a Yamaha YRZ M1 and frankly, as cool as it was to see an Italian champion on an Italian bike, watching him struggle was not much fun and probably bad for the sport's popularity.
