The question that's on everyone's mind is whether Valentino Rossi still has it in him to win MotoGP races and perhaps even a world championship, and The Doctor knows it
“I am so proud to wear the new logo and am very happy to be back in the family! I cannot wait for another opportunity to ride the M1. I think the Yamaha Factory Team will be very strong this year with myself and Jorge. For me at this moment I have to be a little quiet and try to understand what my level is with the bike after the first test. My last Grand Prix victory was in 2010 so my first goal is to come back onto the podium as soon as possible, and to try to win a race,” said Valentino Rossi, during a recent visit to Jakarta, Indonesia.
“I’m feeling very positive about the 2013 season. I think the arrival of Valentino is good and we have a very strong team now. I know he is a very talented rider. We will start trying the new bike in Sepang at the next test; I think we have a great chance to be world champion again. It is going to be very difficult as always, it’s the toughest category. We are confident with our possibilities though and we are one of the favourites,” added Jorge Lorenzo.
So, can The Doctor revive his glory years once more in 2013? We hope, and pray, that he does. Only then will the Ducati years be forgotten...
