At 42 years, Rossi’s desire to compete stronger than ever

“I was a factory rider for a long time. 19 seasons in MotoGP™. In my first two seasons in 500 cc, I was in a similar situation. It’s true it was 20 years ago, and the 500 class was a different world, but at the time I felt very comfortable. From what I understand I have fewer people working on the bike but also in the satellite team the way to work is different. You can think more about race performance rather than the development of the bike.”
