In the race held by the Jerez Circuit, Spain, Valentino Rossi finished third.
It was The Doctor’s first podium after the last time on American MotoGP last season.
Rossi felt the podium again after 1 year and 102 days.
After the race, rider Monster Energy Yamaha it celebrates like someone who wins the race.
Apparently, there are those who think that celebrations by Rossi are too excessive.
The assumption came from a former MotoGP racer, Loris Reggiani.
“I do not understand all the euphoria for Valentino,” Reggiani said Tuttomotoriweb (1/8/2020).
“Even though (Rossi) has returned to the podium at the age of 41,” he continued.
Because, according to Reggiani, Rossi must be careful again with other riders. Especially about speed.
“I would say that in front of him there were still two riders on the same motorcycle as him (Fabio Quartararo and Maverick Vinales),” Reggiani said.
“(Franco) Morbidelli also caught up with him, I think this is the other side of a coin,” Reggiani said.
Reggiani was not the only one who responded cynically to the euphoria of Valentino Rossi MotoGP Andalusia 2020.
Former leader of Repsol Honda, Livio Suppo, too.
According to Suppo, Rossi could not have won the podium if his closest rival, Takaaki Nakagami (LCR Honda) appeared smarter.
“Takaaki Nakagami won fourth place, the results were very good,” Suppo said.
“However, if he (Nakagami) is smarter, he will be able to compete with Valentino Rossi for the podium,” he said.
