Valentino 'The Doctor' Rossi recently took a bit of MotoGP magic with him to Brazil, as he visited Sao Paulo for a day, where he did a quick interview with Playboy magazine (!) and rode a Yamaha YZF-R1 at the Fazenda Capuava racetrack alongside the legendary Brazilian footballer, Cafù. Rossi also had a chance to meet up with ex-MotoGP rider Alex Barros, before flying off to Austin, Texas, for the Grand Prix of the Americas.

"I really want to go to Austin. The season started well and getting a good result in Austin would mean a lot for me and for Yamaha. It would mean that the direction taken is the right one," said The Doctor.
