Immediately after an undeniably unsuccessful two- year romantic relationship with Ducati, motorbike superstar Valentino Rossi has made a decision to take his skills back to Yamaha, the team he left at the finish of the 2010 season for what he hoped would be greener pastures.
The deal signed by Rossi will see him wearing Yamaha blue for two many years the 2013 and 2014 seasons and teaming up once again with Jorge Lorenzo, the 25- year -old Spanish rider who won the World Championship in 2010 and is at this time performing the very same for 2012.

As to who will be filling Rossi’s vacated saddle at Ducati, rumor has it that the Italian team is most interested in Italian rider Andrea Dovizioso. If that is the case, he will be paired up with American Nicky Hayden, who has been with Ducati since 2009.
