In his glasses, Rossi is a pleasant figure, both when wearing a racing uniform, and in everyday life. The man from Australia assesses Rossi always looks happy, often joking and what it is.
“Vale can go faster when he is happy. He likes to joke on the grid. Joking about anything, it can be about women, grid position, or the first corner. What you see in interviews and races is very similar to his life in general. He was very funny, “he said.
