Our colleague and friend Guenther Wiesinger, usually very well informed, says on Speedweek that Valentino Rossi might also decide to retire at the end of the season.
The motivations he gives - lack of results, poor competitiveness of Yamaha - are all correct, but what Valentino thinks only he knows, and having the knife on the handle he will decide when he wants. Even if the clues point to a decision in Misano. Misano 1 or Misano 2, it is not yet clear.
In the meantime, however, just so as not to lose the habit, Vale has gone to train on the Pomposa circuit with the handful of friends (and now also opponents) of VR46, the Academy he created. And from the pictures taken by Camilla Fratesi, it looks like they were having fun, relaxing.
