Valentino Rossi will leave the Yamaha factory team at the end of the MotoGP 2020 season. He will be replaced by a young and ambitious Fabio Cuartararo.

Yamaha has already confirmed that it will fully support Valentino, provide him with a factory bike and factory support. The Doctor has a huge fan base, so he remains a very profitable participant in the championship for the organizers of the event.

Valentino Rossi: “I adhere to the words said at the end of last season and I’m not going to force events. I need more time. Yamaha acted accordingly and completed the negotiations. Obviously, the latest technical changes and the arrival of a new leader in my team mean that it costs the task is to perform at a high level during the season and continue my career in MotoGP in 2021. Before I do this, I need to answer some questions. Only the track and the first races will give me answers. I am very glad that if I decide to “Yamaha is ready to support me in all aspects, will provide me with a factory motorcycle and a contract. During the first tests I will try to do my best to work well with the team and prepare for the beginning of the season.”
