Valentino Rossi unveiled this special helmet design on Saturday at the San Marino Grand Prix (see below for more pitures).

The helmet appears to sum up his tough time as a Ducati rider. It features a cartoon illustration of Rossi as a boxer, slumped on the ropes with bruises, a black eye and teeth missing, but refusing to give up - asking "Come Vado?" (How am I doing?").

The seven time MotoGP champion is returning to Yamaha next season and Misano is his final appearance for Ducati on home Italian asphalt.
