Tired of hearing speculation on Valentino Rossi’s next move? We have purposely avoided some of the crazier stories (hear the one about Valentino being “seen entering Yamaha HQ in Europe” last week?), but this one rings pretty true – with Italian media sources flatly stating Rossi has agreed to race for the Yamaha MotoGP team in 2013 and 2014, as teammate to the recently signed Jorge Lorenzo. The official announcement is expected just prior to the Indianapolis round on August 15.
The next big issue surrounding Rossi, apparently, will be whether a proven , winning bike will really make a significant difference, or whether his days at the front are over due to his age and deteriorating skills. Stay tuned for that one.
