MotoGP, Valentino Rossi: 'New head technician, we have chosen to wait for the change'


Valentino explains the reasons that prompted him to postpone the change of chief technician to the new season
The new course at home Yamaha has already begun, the numbers of the last races clearly say: from the victory of Vinales in Malaysia (always qualified in the first row in the last 6 GPs, except in Japan), at 5 poles and 6 podiums of the rookie Quartararo, up to the performance in the race by Morbidelli (sixth three times in the last 4 races). Only the box of is missing Valentino Rossi to the appeal: after the two podiums in Argentina and America he never went beyond fourth place, surfing on a series of problems with his bike that compromised the season.

There M1 version 2020 it will be more powerful, trying to neutralize tire consumption at the same time. But the transformation for Rossi also concerns the "human material", started by the staff of engineers and ended with a historic change of the head technician: David Munoz (now the side of Bulega and chief technician of Bagnaia two years ago, when he became world champion) he will take the place of Silvano Galbusera, close to Valentino for 6 years. A passage that, he told the Doctor to Speedweek, was deliberately gradual: "I could have made the change in Thailand after the announcement, but I thought it would have been better not to hurry. Also in the interest of Silvano. David starts from scratch in MotoGP, he doesn't have much experience. But during the winter tests we have enough time to get used to each other ".

On the one hand respect in the farewell for a relationship not only working but also human; on the other hand, the desire to facilitate arrival: taking over a season that is now over, with overt and unsolved problems, would certainly not have been the best way to start playing such a fundamental role. All that remains is to wait for the end of the championship for the start of the new challenge.
