Moto GP rider Valentino Rossi opened up about his views on Baby Schumi’s relationship with the Ferrari. The 9-time World Champion went on to say that what Sebastian Vettel is going through with his team is a “great shame”.
During a press conference, Rossi spoke out about the German, billing him as a “top driver”. Valentino Rossi is getting set for the San Marino Grand Prix this weekend.
MotoGP legend Valentino Rossi says that the relationship between Sebastian Vettel and Ferrari is ‘a great shame’. The driver will leave for Aston Martin in 2021 and according to Rossi that’s a good thing too: here the German can show his true speed.
“For Vettel it’s a disgrace what happens there, because it ends badly between Ferrari and the German,” Rossi said at Motorsport prior to the San Marino Grand Prix. “Also because they almost won the World Championship together once or twice. I think Vettel is a top driver: it’s bad to see him in this situation”.
Vettel will replace Sergio Perez at Aston Martin next year, after Racing Point told the Mexican he had to leave. Perez revealed a day later that ‘no one has told anyone anything’ about his upcoming departure. Meanwhile, Vettel admitted that he had almost made the choice to stop in Formula 1.
