Already we’re seeing comments about Rossi’s anticipated move to Formula 1. Established racers are saying he has to come over and win immediately if he’s going to succeed. Oh, really? How many current racers were winning right out of the box? Is this just a gentle form of psychological intimidation? Formula 1 is like nothing else, etc., etc. Well, MotoGP isn’t bicycle racing either.
Formula 1 is definitely an extreme sport in every sense but Rossi has proven he is quite a racer. Current F1 drivers are the best of the best but they are still human and I think Rossi is quite capable of making the jump. I think it would be very interesting to watch. I can’t wait to see the expressions on the faces of a few drivers if he does cross over and begin winning.
