MotoGP legend Valentino Rossi had his last Grand Prix this weekend at home. Relive the tribute he conceded to all these fans who were present in large numbers in the stands.
For his last Grand Prix at home, The doctor stood out on the Misano track. Gone since the 23rd position on the starting grid, the nine-time world champion in the discipline was illustrated, by showing despite his 42 years that talent is still present. And for good reason, Valentino Rossi has made a meteoric rise to 10th position. The Italian remained focused, relentlessly. He knew how to seize the opportunities that arose in front of him, until he survived in this chaotic GP marked by a total of 8 crashes.
On arrival, all the cameras were on Fabio Quartararo, although a party was planned in honor of the champion and the man that is Valentino Rossi. The Yamaha rider took the time to celebrate with his loved ones, his fans but also his team. He also gave his helmet to one of his fervent supporters in the stands. It was then that a second award ceremony took place, still for the same man. To honor again and always his sublime career, the accomplished champion that he has become and the man who will be missed so much in the motorcycle world; before he retires from sports at the end of the 2021 MotoGP season.
