Valentino Rossi's participation in the Valencia GP confirmed

Despite media speculation to the contrary, The Doctor will be in action at the Gran Premio Motul de la Comunitat Valenciana

Monster Energy Yamaha MotoGP are delighted to confirm that Valentino Rossi will be able to take part in this weekend‘s Gran Premio de la Comunitat Valenciana. Following a marginally positive PCR test on Tuesday 10th November, the Italian had two further PCR tests done (on Wednesday 11th and Thursday 12th November), both of which came back negative for the Covid-19 virus.

Why did Rossi's European Grand Prix come to an early end?

BACKGROUND INFORMATION:

-       On Tuesday 10th November, Rossi underwent the usual PCR test, which is compulsory for those who visit their homes in between races. The result of this first test became available the next day and it was reported as “positive with very low viral load”. The doctors recommended Rossi to take two more tests, separated by 24 hours.

-       On Wednesday 11th November, Rossi took a second PCR test, of which the result came back negative this morning (Thursday 12th November).

-       This morning (Thursday 12th November), Rossi took a third PCR test at home and then travelled to Valencia, Spain, where he self-isolated while waiting for the result. It was again negative, allowing Rossi to reunite with the Monster Energy Yamaha MotoGP team and take part in this weekend‘s Gran Premio de la Comunitat Valenciana.
