MotoGP Kevin Schwantz: “even from the stands Valentino Rossi will continue to dominate this sport”

Kevin Schwantz reassures fans in yellow, even though Valentino Rossi’s MotoGP career is about to end. In view of the current results and his resignation to cash them, we can say that it is already over. Three more races and the legend will say goodbye to the championship which has seen him win seven times. To the triumphs in the premier category are added those in 125 and 250 which prove to us by nine that it will leave a great void. And yet, he will always be there …

Indeed, Valentino Rossi will no longer participate in the world championship as a distinguished competitor. But he will leave a deep mark behind him. First of all, there will be the teams VR46 who will race in Moto3, Moto2 and MotoGP. This will make exactly four structures, since two will be present in Moto2 under Yamaha and then Saudi colors. In addition, there will be pilots like Francesco Bagnaia and Franco Morbidelli who are now among the best drivers in the premier class, racing with the official teams Ducati and Yamaha. An important legacy from the nine-time world champion.

Kevin Schwantz confirms this influence in an interview with Sky Sport MotoGP where he praised Rossi, with whom he has good relations: ” what Valentino has given to the sport is his relationship with the fans. He leaves behind many young pilots from the Academy. Even if he won’t be there next year, we will still feel his impact in the race. ».

Schwantz also think that Rossi will be present at the World Championship even without being there physically. And he adds: ” I have always seen the same spirit in him, even in his Academy. He always wanted to be the best, he reached a point in his career where he can no longer be in front of everyone, but he will always continue to dominate the sport. Even if he watches it from the stands “. The last in Valencia will be a great moment. It will be recalled that the Texan legend offered to Vale a special helmet with symbolic decoration.
