Valentino rossi is no longer part of the paddock of MotoGP, after finishing his sports career in the Valencia Grand Prix, from two weeks ago. However, his racing career continues by leaps and bounds. Now the Italian opens the doors to Formula 1, after hearing a good proposal from the pilot of Mclaren, Lando norris. “I want to try”, He highlighted.
Formula 1 is not a world alien to Valentino Rossi. The nine-time Motorcycling World Champion has already tested hand in hand with Ferrari in 2006 and then in 2009. There ‘Il Dottore’ was about to sign a contract with Ferrari to reach the top flight, but being in the team Minardi, gave up the possibility.
However, in recent days McLaren driver Lando Norris proposed to Rossi to run a race together for years to come. Although it would not be in Formula 1, the Italian accepted this without hesitation and stressed that he has a great relationship with Norris. “I am always in contact with Lando because he has been my fan from the beginning. Made a special helmet like mine in Monza”.
“I follow him a lot because I think he’s a great, great talent, and he’s also very young, he’s a fun guy. Next year, with more time, I want to try to go see a Formula 1 race”Valentino commented in an interview. In 2019, Norris visited Rossi at the British Grand Prix, where the latter finished in fourth place.
This is why Valentino commented that racing with the Formula 1 driver would be a great pleasure and praised his driving skills. “About racing together next year, for me it would be great because Lando is very fast. I will race in cars and if I can do a race with Lando for me it will be a great, great pleasure because he is very fast and we will be able to enjoy it for sure, ”said Vale.
