Not too long Valentino rossi will hang up the helmet and gloves to focus on the 100% in his work as team leader. Its structure is already more than established in the World Cup (in 2022 it will enter the queen category) and little by little he becomes more involved.
As his career dwindles dramatically (he crashed again last weekend), both he and Pablo Nieto, who is the director of the structure, they want the Sky VR46 to gain positions in the three grids and that is why they do not want the great pearl of world motorcycling to escape them, which is Spanish: Pedro Acosta from Murcia.
The news advanced her DAZN during the broadcast of the Catalan GP: Rossi and Nieto they have already contacted with the pilot’s environment to convince him to sign for his team of Moto2 by 2022.
🗣️ @ pablonieto22, on the possible signing of @ 37_pedroacosta for him @SkyRacingTeam Moto2: “Pedro Acosta is being watched by all the teams, we are looking at all the interesting riders”#CatalanGP 🇪🇸 #MotoGP 🏁 pic.twitter.com/eOdsWs1iNU

The leader of the World Cup Moto3, and great favorite to win it, has a contract with him Red Bull Garlic KTM and one rescission clause of 500,000 euros. Acosta will have a place in the Moto2 Sky VR46 when Marco Bezzecchi jump to MotoGP, to the ARAMCO V46 Racing team with which Rossi’s structure will enter the premier class.
That is Rossi’s great future goal with Acosta. Aware that he is a diamond in the rough, in the offer for the Moto2 team he has guaranteed that he will also have the option to jump to MotoGP with one of the team’s Ducati.
Acosta confessed in his interview with Sportyou / 20minutes that his great objective, beyond winning the Moto3 World Championship, is to make the leap to the intermediate category. Used to carry bigger bikes, 600cc or 1000cc (with these he trains when he is not at the handlebar of his KTM), his riding has surprised locals and strangers, so it is expected that in the paddock of the adults he will adapt to a thousand wonders.
