Ferrari Offer Rossi Assistance In Broken Leg Recovery

Scuderia Ferrari’s boss Luca di Montezemolo has offered assistance to MotoGP rider Valentino Rossi in his recovery from a broken leg sustained in practice for last weekend’s Italian Motorbike Grand Prix.

Rossi, who is the current reigning world champion in MotoGP and is widely regarded as one of the greatest motorcycle racers of all time had a horrific accident at the Mugello Circuit where he crashed in free practice.  He was airlifted to hospital in Florence and has sustained a broken leg.  It is expected he will be away from motorcycle racing for 2 months at least.

The rider popularly known as “The Doctor” has close links with Ferrari, having tested various road cars and even their Formula One cars.  He has been linked with a drive with the Italian team.

“Everyone at Ferrari is with you at this difficult time,” Montezemolo told the official Ferrari website.

“We are sure that you will be back on track soon, even stronger than before.

“If during your convalescence you feel you would like to do some training on four wheels, then remember that the door to Maranello is always open to you.”
