Valentino Rossi on Yamaha and Ducati right now: “They need to resolve, the sport modified” | MotoGP

Yamaha’s Fabio Quartararo bemoaned his bike’s efficiency as he was pipped to the world championship on the ultimate day of the MotoGP season by Ducati’s Francesco Bagnaia.

Ducati have already strengthened their MotoGP 2023 rider line-up by including Enea Bastianini, who gained the second-most races in 2022, to their manufacturing unit group.

“Yamaha at all times focuses on balancing the bike, a reasonably simple bike and cornering,” stated the legendary Rossi. 

“However now the space to the Ducati is vital. I have to say that Ducati in recent times has put anybody in issue, all of the Japanese producers are in nice issue.”

MotoGP has already been rocked by the shock exit of Japan-based Suzuki.

Rossi’s iconic profession is linked to Yamaha, the group that he loved his heyday with.

A two-year spell at Ducati – the place a well-known Italian rider joined a well-known Italian model – was disastrous.

Rossi by no means added to his seven world titles within the premier class within the remaining 12 seasons of his profession, even after leaving Ducati to return to Yamaha.

However his protege from the VR46 Academy, Bagnaia, grew to become Ducati’s first world champion in 15 years this season.

“In Ducati they’ve an aggressive manner of working, many bikes on the monitor and everybody’s information,” Rossi stated.

“So that they have taken a step ahead and the Japanese producers should resolve, as a result of the sport has modified: we’d like more cash, extra folks… Will they really feel prefer it? 

“They need to perceive that to win they should do extra. Ducati is reaping the advantages of Gigi Dall’Igna’s work and now I feel it is the perfect bike.”
