Nine-time world champion Valentino Rossi became the first MotoGP rider to miss the Grand Prix due to a positive Kovit decision, which will see him sidelined from the Aragon round this weekend, but exiting the second background next weekend is definitely a to-back event.
When Rosie woke up this (Thursday) morning she felt ‘slightly sore’ and had a ‘mild fever’. Although the ‘quick’ test was negative, the ‘standard’ test gave a positive result at 16:00.
Italy’s lack of Aragon follows six Yamaha engineers, including M1 project leader Takahiro Sumi, who avoided testing one of their crew in favor of the Covit 19 last weekend due to loneliness in the Le Mans round. It is unclear whether the engineers will return this weekend.
Meanwhile, Covid Diagnosis continues a dream run for Rosie, who has lost the last three races in a row and is currently 13th at the World Championships:
– Valentino Rossi (ValeYellow46) October 15, 2020
Read a statement on social media (above) from Rosie that “I am sad and angry that I did what I could to respect the protocol … this is the way it is, there is nothing I can do to change the situation”. . “I hope to follow medical advice now and recover soon.”
Prior to Rosie’s diagnosis, the highest motorcycle Grand Prix rider who missed an event due to Covit was George Martin, who was the frontrunner for the Moto 2, while the Spaniard was knocked out of both Mizano rounds.
Rosie expects the event to “not go away” next weekend, will he be able to deny factory test ride and three MotoGP champion Jorge Lorenzo 2020 racing proceeds when wild cards are canceled earlier this season?
