MotoGP: Graham Bensinger Video Interview With Valentino Rossi, P4

RoadRacing World - Sat, 2022-01-22 11:23

Nine-time MotoGP champ Valentino Rossi remembers his tense rivalry with teammate Jorge Lorenzo and compares it to the infamous Formula 1 feud between Mercedes F1 teammates Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg. Rossi describes an especially hard moment with Lorenzo at Barcelona in 2009 and initial frustrations when Lorenzo joined as a Yamaha teammate in 2008. Later, Rossi recalls the validation of winning his first race after moving from Honda to Yamaha and silencing doubters who claimed his Honda bike was mostly responsible for winning three MotoGP championships in four years.

IN ITALIANO: Il nove volte campione della MotoGP Valentino Rossi ricorda la sua forte rivalità con il compagno di squadra Jorge Lorenzo e la paragona a quella più famigerata tra Lewis Hamilton e Nico Rosberg, compagni alla Mercedes in Formula 1. Il pilota descrive un momento particolarmente difficile con Lorenzo a Barcellona, nel 2009, e le frustrazioni iniziali quando questi, nel 2008, si unì come compagno di squadra alla Yamaha. Successivamente, Rossi ricorda la convalida della sua prima vittoria dopo il passaggio dalla Honda alla Yamaha e di aver messo a tacere i detrattori, secondo i quali il merito dell’aver vinto tre campionati MotoGP in quattro anni era da attribuirsi alla sua Honda.

World Superbike: Ducati Hires Davies As Riders’ Coach

RoadRacing World - Fri, 2022-01-21 17:49

Chaz Davies to be the Riders’ Coach for the Aruba.it Racing – Ducati Team

Chaz Davies will remain part of the Aruba.it Racing – Ducati family and will take on the role of Coach, putting his experience and talent at the disposal of Alvaro Bautista, Michael Rinaldi and Nicolò Bulega who – in the 2022 season – will make his debut in the Supersport World Championship riding the Ducati Panigale V2 of the Aruba.it Racing – Ducati WSSP Team.

The Welsh rider (born in Knighton on 10 February 1987) will start a new adventure that will allow him to be at the centre of the action again after 8 campaigns (6 with the Aruba.it Racing – Ducati team), 266 races, 28 victories and 89 podiums gained with a Ducati machine in the World Superbike Championship.

Stefano Cecconi (Team Principal, Aruba.it Racing – Ducati)

“We are happy to be able to count on Chaz again, albeit in a new role both for him and for our team. His experience will certainly be of great help to our riders, allowing them to express their full potential. His contribution to the SuperSport project will also be fundamental for both Nicolò Bulega and the team, as the Panigale V2 has the DNA of the twin-cylinder Superbikes on which Chaz has achieved outstanding results over the past years”.

 

Chaz Davies (Riders’ Coach, Aruba.it Racing – Ducati)

“I’m absolutely thrilled to remain part of the racing world and especially with the Aruba.it – Ducati family, with whom I enjoyed the best years of my racing career. It will be an interesting perspective to see the action from ‘the other side of the fence’! I believe that with my seven years of experience as an official Ducati rider and knowledge of both the Ducati V2 and V4 bikes I am well equipped to contribute to the future success of the team. We have excellent riders for the 2022 SBK/WSS campaigns and I will give everything I can to maximise their potential. I want to thank Stefano Cecconi, Feel Racing and Ducati for this opportunity and can’t wait to get started!”

On 31st January, ahead of the official MotoGP Shakedown test (31st January – 2nd February) at Sepang International Circuit (Malaysia), that will see Michele Pirro and the Ducati Test Team take it to the track for the first time this year, the 2022 livery of the Ducati Lenovo Team bikes will be unveiled.

Jack Miller (#43, Ducati Lenovo Team):

“Unfortunately, I’ve been tested positive for Covid-19, which means I am unable to travel to Europe. I am still home in Australia and doing fine. Since I don’t have any symptoms, at least I can continue with my training. I miss you all and will see you in Sepang for the test.”
