Having won at Assen, Valentino Rossi told a joke about his dream to become the oldest driver to win a Grand Prix race. The Italian wants to beat Troy Bayliss achievements that he won the Grand Prix of Valencia in 2006 at the age of 37 years, so Valentino would have to chase for at least another three years.
As we know, Cal Crutchlow chose to leave the team for the factory Yamaha Tech3 Team Ducati. There were many reasons behind this but most was the fact that Lin Jarvis could not guarantee a place in the British rider Yamaha factory team at the end of the season in 2014. Lin Jarvis has made it clear that Yamaha plans to extend the contract with Rossi and Lorenzo. In a recent interview with Valentino Rossi has denied all the rumors about his possible move to the team Suzuki, but shared his plans for the future and the desire to stay in the championship after the 2014 season. Valentino Rossi: “After 2014, I want to sign with Yamaha next two-year contract until the end of 2016, unless, of course, Yamaha will agree. According to its expiration, I think I’ve had enough.” Talking about the plans of “retirement,” Valentino said the desire to transfer to a four-wheel drive: GT, DTM, Le Mans with no ambition and just for fun. In addition, Rossi wants to spend more time educating the Italian talent, but that it can take a while when he finally hung up his “hat on a nail.”
