VIDEO: Valentino Rossi – I’m very proud to be part of PETRONAS Yamaha Sepang Racing Team

Valentino Rossi on joining Malaysian squad PETRONAS Yamaha SRT for 2021

In this video interview, new-signing Valentino Rossi shares his thoughts on his 2021 Yamaha YZR-M1, his targets for 2021, what it means to join PETRONAS Yamaha Sepang Racing Team and what he expects from having a team-mate that he knows well…


What do you think about your new bike with PETRONAS Yamaha Sepang Racing Team colours?

I’m really happy to see my new bike for 2021. For me it’s a new experience and I can’t wait for the first test and the start of the championship in Qatar. The colour changed for me too, and I really like the livery of the bike, the new leathers, gloves, boots and my new helmet. It will be an awesome package: We are ready to start.

What are your personal targets for 2021?

My targets for 2021 are to be competitive, fight to win races, fight to achieve podiums and also fight for a good position in the World Championship standings at the end of the season. We are all very focused on our targets to make the best we can.

What does it mean to you to be part of PETRONAS Yamaha SRT?

I’m very proud to be part of PETRONAS Yamaha Sepang Racing Team. It’s a new challenge for me. This is a very young team, but in the last two years they have already been really competitive. The bike will remain the same, my Yamaha YZR-M1, and I think it will be a funny season.

What do you expect for this year with such a familiar team-mate for you?

Franco and I are a very interesting couple of riders. We have a good relationship; we know each other very well. We are always training and challenging together on different bikes so this year we will also do this from the same garage.

How excited are you to be getting on to the PETRONAS Yamaha SRT YZR-M1 very soon?

I have a long career and already spent a lot of years with Yamaha and the M1; I can’t wait to work together with the Yamaha engineers and the whole team to try to improve the performance of the bike.

After eight consecutive years in the Yamaha Factory Team, what changes and similarities do you expect for this 2021 with PETRONAS Yamaha SRT?

It’s a long personal story with the Yamaha Factory Team, split in two parts – since 2004 -, so it’s almost a life together! I don’t expect a lot of differences because the bike is the same and we will have the full support from the factory. At the same time, it is a new team, new people in the garage, new mechanics – so a new experience for me. The team has a lot of motivation and I will give my maximum to achieve the best possible result at the end of the season together.
