Max Biaggi has said Valentino Rossi should consider making the move from MotoGP to World Superbikes.
While at last weeks’ EICMA show Max Biaggi took the time to speak the future of his countryman, Valentino Rossi. Former 250 GP and Superbike world champion Biaggi has a unique insight into making the transition between the MotoGP and WorldSBK championships – after leaving the GP paddock for a ride in the World Superbikes, where he managed to take two championship titles in 2010 and 2012. And he reckons Rossi could do the same.
In an interview with the Gazzetta dello Sport, when asked about Rossi racing in World Superbikes Biaggi said: “I would advise him? Until there is so much enthusiasm and you do not feel the difficulty to give, until you feel fatigued … why not! It is the most beautiful environment, we pilots want to go on the track and compete. “
It’s an interesting thought – but whether or not Rossi would consider leaving the GP paddock is another story. Rossi seems happy to continue in MotoGP as long as he remains competitive – and although he’s not been winning races much lately, he’s usually in with a shot at the podium. Maybe a side-step into World Superbikes would make help him finish off his career with that elusive tenth title.
