Nine-time MotoGP champ Valentino Rossi remembers his tense rivalry with teammate Jorge Lorenzo and compares it to the infamous Formula 1 feud between Mercedes F1 teammates Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg. Rossi describes an especially hard moment with Lorenzo at Barcelona in 2009 and initial frustrations when Lorenzo joined as a Yamaha teammate in 2008. Later, Rossi recalls the validation of winning his first race after moving from Honda to Yamaha and silencing doubters who claimed his Honda bike was mostly responsible for winning three MotoGP championships in four years.

IN ITALIANO: Il nove volte campione della MotoGP Valentino Rossi ricorda la sua forte rivalità con il compagno di squadra Jorge Lorenzo e la paragona a quella più famigerata tra Lewis Hamilton e Nico Rosberg, compagni alla Mercedes in Formula 1. Il pilota descrive un momento particolarmente difficile con Lorenzo a Barcellona, nel 2009, e le frustrazioni iniziali quando questi, nel 2008, si unì come compagno di squadra alla Yamaha. Successivamente, Rossi ricorda la convalida della sua prima vittoria dopo il passaggio dalla Honda alla Yamaha e di aver messo a tacere i detrattori, secondo i quali il merito dell’aver vinto tre campionati MotoGP in quattro anni era da attribuirsi alla sua Honda.
