MotoGP : Rossi to continue in MotoGP with Yamaha until 2020


The nine-time World Champion has re-signed with the Japanese manufacturer for two more seasons in MotoGP

Valentino Rossi has signed a new two-year deal to continue in MotoGP with the Movistar Yamaha MotoGP team. The announcement will see the 39-year-old competing in a record 24 seasons of Grand Prix racing and continuing his association with the Japanese manufacturer in the premier class to reach an astounding 15 years

Rossi’s first season with Yamaha was 2004, where he spectacularly won on his debut with the team in South Africa, before going on to take the title the same year. He went on to win the Championship again in 2005, however suffered a dry spell over the next two years.


This was ended in 2008 after claiming the title in supreme fashion – a feat he repeated the year after in 2009. So far, it marks Rossi’s last title to date, despite coming close just three seasons ago.

His new deal demonstrates both Yamaha’s commitment to the nine-time World Champion and vice-versa, as they seek to be fighting consistently at the front once again, after last year’s campaign was blighted by the YZR-M1’s issues in different weather conditions as well as injury mid-season.

It’s a very exciting time for Valentino Rossi and equally for MotoGP, with ‘The Doctor’ confirmed to line up on the grid in 2019 and 2020
