Are we finally going to see an announcement from Petronas Yamaha at Misano?
It has been months of waiting now, we all know that Valentino Rossi will sign with the Petronas Yamaha team, however, there is the issue of legalities between Yamaha, Rossi and the SRT Team such as contracts, team members and rider/team expectations.
The Misano round would be the perfect place to annouce this given how close the track is to the home of Valentino Rossi, we are also expecting to see spectators at the track meaning parties in San Marino can be expected if the news is made official.
Rossi himself has said that he is “99%” signed with a MotoGP team for 2021 a few weeks ago, Lin Jarvis also backed this up when speaking to BT Sport at the Styrian GP. The rumours are pointing to an announcement at the Misano race weekend of 11th-13th September.
