Razlan Razali as Team Principal Yamaha Petronas SRT assumed that in order to bring Valentino Rossi back to being competitive on the cross, it was necessary to create a more relaxed and relaxed team atmosphere.
The nine-time World Champion has not won since the last time at the Dutch Grand Prix in 2017. While the last podium was won at the Andalusian Grand Prix in 2020, at that time he finished in 3rd position.
In last season’s campaign, overall Rossi appeared to be fickle, in fact he often had accidents and ultimately failed to reach the finish line. This is what Petronas SRT wants to address.
Razlan Razali considers that bringing Rossi back to competition is not an easy matter but it is of course a special challenge, because it automatically becomes the desire of the Petronas SRT team as well.
“If you look at the future, our challenge is to try to make him competitive again. We want him to stay ahead,” he said.
Furthermore, the man from Malaysia believes that Rossi just needs a more relaxed and relaxed team atmosphere in order to appear competitive again. The presence of Franco Morbidelli in the team is believed to be able to make The Doctor feel calmer and more relaxed.
“Kami berharap, dengan lingkungan baru yang bisa kami tawarkan, ia bisa lebih santai. Ia bakal bekerja sama dengan Franky, yang sudah ia kenal sejak lama.”
“So, our team will have a very good atmosphere in the garage. I think it will be very important for Vale to have a calm mind to enjoy racing, “said Razali.
Franco Morbidelli on the one hand admits that he can’t wait to meet Valentino Rossi, who is none other than his mentor at VR46 Academy.
“I and Vale have a very close relationship. So, getting the opportunity to be a partner feels very good and this is a good situation,” said Morbidelli some time ago
Franco Morbidelli himself actually performed well last season, where he managed to finish as runner-up in the competition.
