The nine time world champion seemed very excited and relaxed at the press conference at Sachsenring. The reason was twofold, first was the renewal of his contract with Yamaha till 2016 end and second was the introduction of Michelin tyres and a new standard ECU system. Simply put, this decision aims at eradicating the prowess of one of the teams over another.

“I really wanted two years because I want to try the 2016 bikes,” Rossi said. “I think MotoGP™ will change very much after next year. Because two of the crucial things which are electronics and tyres will be different so maybe it will be another kind of riding style, another way to control the bike. It is like an ‘era zero’.”

With 5 podiums from the 8 races so far this season, Rossi has everything to look forward to in the next two seasons especially when he desperately wants to win another premier class title to equal the legendary Giacomo Agostini who has 8 premier class titles under his belt.
