Monsterbalap – Previously rumored that Johan Zarco will replace Rossi at Yamaha Movistar to race in Misano while waiting for Valentino Rossi’s recovery. But apparently it is wrong, Movistar Yamaha chose not to attract anyone.
Rossi’s injury is predicted to take 40 days, but for 40 days there will be two races to go, first in Misano and second in Aragon. Aragon Race will be held 22 days after Rossi finished crashing, so predicted Rossi can not race there.
Said the Yamaha if Rossi has not been able to return in Aragon then Yamaha will find a replacement for Valentino Rossi for a while. Katsuyuki Nakasuga and Alex Lowes one of them rumored to be filling Rossi’s empty seat.
But according to the news that it looks like Yamaha will choose WSBK Van der Mark racer. The Dutch rider was probably chosen because it is more reliable, in addition to racing in the event WSBK he also raced in Suzuka 8 hours yesterday with Yamaha.
“We are considering all options and the final decision is expected to be taken on Monday next week,” a Yamaha spokesman told Crash.
Of course, Yamaha needs a replacement to stay competitive in the acquisition of constructor points. Whoever his successor must be a great person.
