Published

on

The father of Valentino Rossi has defended his son as the Yamaha veteran toils through a dismal 2019 campaign.

Rossi, who turned 40 in February, has managed two podiums so far this season, but his 2019 charge was brought to a screaming halt following consecutive accidents at Mugello, Barcelona and Assen.

While just five points behind factory teammate Maverick Vinales in the standings, Rossi’s dreams of a tenth world title have already been quashed as Marc Marquez sprints towards a sixth premier class crown.

Mercedes and Haas were the only teams to go into 2019 with an unchanged combination, while Alfa Romeo, McLaren, Toro Rosso and Williams all underwent wholesale change.

After 12 races, the order has been shaken up, and Carlos Sainz — who moved from Renault to McLaren — highlighted the key year-on-year differences for drivers as they move to unlock the “secrets” behind their new cars as fast as possible.
