Valentino Rossi has never had a great relationship with his rivals, but after making more or less peace with Jorge Lorenzo and is now giving him a massive amount of respect, the former nine times World Champion is also able to joke around with MotoGP rookie Marc Marquez on Twitter.
Marquez has become the poster child of lean angles, not only thanks to his highly impressive pre-season testing results, but also thanks to his highly spectacular hanging off the bike riding style (which reminds us of Toni Elias) with his shoulder and elbow scraping the asphalt, which has forced Alpinestars to reinforce his protections.
Rossi finished on top of the charts yesterday for the first time, and is now becoming comfortable on his M1, and he posted the above photo on Twitter and asked Marc Marquez, who is one of Rossi’s fans and they’ve often complimented each other: Ehi @marcmarquez93 vado bene così? (Hey, am I doing it right?) which the Spaniard responded with, “jajajaj..come sempre sei fortissimo!! Gass” (yes, yes, yes … as always you are great!! Gass.”)
Rossi is now officially on Facebook, so if anyone is interested just click here.
