PIC: Rossi back with Yamaha

Valentino Rossi recreates Welkom 2004 MotoGP victory celebration in first official 2013 Yamaha photoshoot.
With his previous Ducati MotoGP contract having now expired, Yamaha has released the first official 2013 photos of Valentino Rossi back with the brand.

The arty shots - featuring both Rossi and reigning double MotoGP champion Jorge Lorenzo in corporate Yamaha colours - are provided along with a trailer video on the website.

They include this shot of Rossi apparently recreating his Welkom 2004 celebration, after winning on his M1 debut.

The official 2013 Factory Yamaha MotoGP race livery is yet to be unveiled.

Rossi won four of his seven MotoGP titles with Yamaha and his most recent race win, at Malaysia in 2010.

Rossi will win 2 more - Unregistered

With an unfortunate time behind him at Ducati, he has now the opportunity to shine again. I am sure he knows that he has the capability to win at his age. Bayless came and won in front of Cappirossi in 2006 and he was older than Rossi at the time. You never know in this sport or any for that matter. Rossi has just as good a chance as any. Good luck for 2013
