#ForzaVale vs #VamosJorge: Rossi’s first shot at the title!

#ForzaVale vs #VamosJorge: Rossi’s first shot at the title!

All of the permutations that would allow Valentino Rossi to lift his tenth World Championship title in Sepang.

Movistar Yamaha’s Valentino Rossi arrived at the Shell Malaysia Motorcycle Grand Prix with an 11-point lead over his teammate and title rival Jorge Lorenzo with just two races to go. If thing’s weren’t already tense enough in the 2015 MotoGP™ World Championship battle, Rossi then decided to use the Pre-Event Press Conference to make some rather sensational revelations.

So after all of the off-track discussion and controversy over the last few days, finally it’s race time and things couldn’t be set up much better between the two for Sunday. Rossi will start from 3rd after qualifying 0.011s ahead of Lorenzo, with his rival starting from the head of the second row in fourth.

In order to win the title at Sepang, Rossi will need to increase his lead in the championship to at least twenty-six points. The following scenarios will result in Rossi taking the world championship in Malaysia:

  • If Rossi wins the race and Lorenzo does not finish in the top five.

  • If Rossi is second and Lorenzo does not finish in the top ten.

  • If Rossi is third and Lorenzo does not finish in the top fourteen.
