Rossi ready for final Yamaha push

Valentino Rossi gets ready for his final two races with the FIAT Yamaha team before he gets ready to swap his blue overalls for red ones next month.
While rumours had hinted at a possible decision to end his tenure with FIAT Yamaha early in favour of surgery on his troublesome shoulder, Valentino Rossi will head into his final two races with the team targeting a fitting conclusion to his time there.

Having predicted he would struggle with his shoulder over the final few races, Rossi powered to victory in the Malaysian Grand Prix, while two further podiums have kept him in the hunt for third position in the standings.

With just two races remaining before he embarks on his much anticipated switch to Ducati, Rossi is looking forward to the return to Europe.

"The flyaways were very good for us, three podiums including one win - we were happy with how much we had improved the bike and also the level of my shoulder. Now we return to Europe and I feel very strongly that I want to enjoy these final two races and try to win again.

“Estoril was not a good track for me last year, we had some problems and I couldn't make it onto the podium so we will be trying to change that this year. After Phillip Island we hope the weather will be a bit warmer but Estoril can change very quickly so it could be a factor again."

Vale we admired your dedication, your effort, your committment and your constant will to win with Yamaha despite all this and whatever happened. We admire how you always managed to keep that spark continuously, the spark with the fans, the spark to keep the racing edge alive, the spark to win, the spark to hold the mind games advantage. I really hope you win atleast one of these last races - you and Yamaha have been so amazing together and I know you will excel at Ducati. Yes Lorenzo won the title (we all can't complain and hate him even though I am a Rossi fan, we all must put our hands up and say he had a flawless season, at a young age he managed to race consistently. Welldone!) but Rossi still wins everyones heart! The Master. The Doctor.
