Partnering Rossi in the premier class is something Morbidelli could have only dreamt about back in 2014. One, because reaching MotoGP™ – the pinnacle of motorcycle racing – isn’t something that happens to everyone. Of course, Morbidelli’s searing talent and hard work saw him rise to Moto2™ superiority and subsequently, a MotoGP™ star. And two, because he – like most of us – probably thought Rossi wouldn’t be racing at the age of 41. He’ll be 42 by the time the season is in full swing in 2021, yet more testament to Rossi’s continued motivation and ability to be competing with the next generation of scintillatingly fast MotoGP™ riders.
