We only hope the 2012 Italian MotoGP at Mugello today turns out to be as interesting as Valentino Rossi's new helmet. We're hoping for a podium finish for The Doctor!
The Doctor might only be starting from 10th position on the grid, but at least he has a cool new helmet for the 2012 Italian MotoGP. The helmet features an image of Gianni Morandi, an Italian singer, actor and television host, surrounded by a bunch of flowers. There's also the phrase 'Restiamo Uniti,' which means 'let's stick together,' on the helmet.
Morandi is, apparently, a heavyweight in the world of Italian music, having sold more than 49 million records worldwide. 'Restiamo Uniti' is a phrase he made famous when he performed at the Sanremo Music Festival in February this year. Designed by Aldo Drudi, Valentino Rossi's new brain bucket looks pretty cool. We only hope The Doctor can actually make some music during the race today. Would a podium finish be too much to hope for...?
