Valentino Rossi has announced this Thursday at a press conference that will put an end to his career as a professional at the end of the current season after 26 years competing in the world championship of motorcycling.
He has taken this decision after the positions he was getting: "The results have been inferior than expected and I started thinking. It was difficult. I had the opportunity to continue with my team and my brother, but it's fine like that. I can not complain about My career, "he said.
Rossi has assured that he has taken "a successful decision" and has recognized that he was not prepared for two years to take the step of stopping competing on MotoGP because he had to get to the point of exhausting everything but he says that now he feels calm: " I can say that if I do a year but it would not be happy either because I would like to compete another 20 more years and I would not be satisfied. "
The Italian pilot revealed his future plans: "I love to compete in cars, just a little less than with the bike and at the next year I will compete in cars, it is not yet decided 100% with that, but I am pilot, I will only change from Motorcycle to cars ".Date Of Update: 05 August 2021, 11:01
