Valentino in furs

Always one for entertaining details, Valentino Rossi began his title assault at today's opening practice sessions with a unique design for his normal number 46. On his leathers, the former five time MotoGP World Champion used a furry, luminous green version of his trademark number, and of course Rossi had an interesting explanation for the new look.

"In 2004 and 2005 we were able to ‘pull a rabbit out of the hat'….in 2006 we didn't manage to do that. He died on us maybe. For this reason we decided to remember him by putting some rabbit fur on the number 46," commented ‘The Doctor' after leading the way on day one.
