Rossi leads in social networks

Valentino Rossi is still an idol for the fans despite his recent results on track. On Twitter he now has more followers than motor racing stars such as Fernando Alonso, Jenson Button and Jorge Lorenzo.

The Italian has already surpassed the figure of 1,500,000 followers on twitter, an amount double that of the current MotoGP™ World Champion, his Yamaha teammate Jorge Lorenzo, who has 650,000 followers.

In just a 13 month presence on Twitter, Rossi has already surpassed Fernando Alonso, who totals nearly 1.4 million followers and Britons Jenson Button and Lewis Hamilton.
