The Doctor has endured the toughest start to a premier class campaign in his illustrious career, with just the one top ten finish to his name on home soil in Mugello. There has been bright sparks throughout the opening half of 2021, however, with memorable Saturday performances in Qatar and also last time out in Assen.

Now 42, the Italian has achieved almost everything there is to achieve in the sport. The only thing he’s yet to do is ride for his own team, something that 2022 could provide. At last, the rumours and intrigue surrounding whether the nine-time World Champion will hang up his leathers or continue for one more year will finally be answered.

All eyes will be on Rossi at 16:15 (GMT+2) at the Red Bull Ring and you can watch the unmissable #VR46Decision LIVE AND FREE on
