Valentino Rossi This weekend will contest the MotoGP European Grand Prix that is held at the Ricardo Tormo circuit in Valencia after having been negative in the last two PCR tests carried out.

This has been confirmed by Yamaha through social networks, with a photo of the rider in the team’s box, preparing for the weekend.

Rossi tested positive last October, at the gates of the Aragon Grand Prix and he has been absent from the grid ever since.

The Italian’s recovery is recent since just two days ago he tested positive for coronavirus again, which put Yamaha on the ropes for the Grand Prix.

The return of the ‘Doctor’ comes in a troubled week in the World Championship in which Yamaha has been stripped of points in the Constructors’ World Championship for mechanical improvements, although its riders have gone unpunished, which has generated debate and complaints from riders like Marc Márquez.
