There’s some big changes that are going to happen in Valentino Rossi’s garage over the next few days of MotoGP official testing – according to the nine-times World Champion.

There’s going to be some major changes in the VR46 corner of the MotoGP paddock over the winter, with Valentino Rossi saying that he knows what’s needed from the Yamaha factory in order to get the Italian back up to the front of the races again.

Speaking after the final round of the 2019 MotoGP championship, Rossi was very candid about what he thought – not on about the Valenica GP round – but also about the worry of where the Yamaha needs to improve.

He said: “That was a difficult race for me. Like in other times this season, we have had rear grip problems.

“When the tyre starts to slip then I can’t maintain lap times, I can feel that there is a problem with the rear tyre and I have to slow down because of it.

“Unfortunately this has happened too many times during the season and we were unable to resolve this. In the last race of the year I had to pay close attention because of the tyre and also because the cold weather made the track conditions more complicated.”

“Many things will change in my garage”
