Italian motorcycle champion Valentino Rossi will also be absent from the Teruel Grand Prix in a week after missing the Aragon race on Sunday, his Yamaha team announced on Sunday. Rossi, 41, and seven-time world champion in the premier class, tested positive for Covid-19 on Thursday and must undergo a period of quarantine before he can return to the circuits. Yamaha has made it clear that he will not be replaced at Teruel, so that only his teammate Maverick Vinales will defend the colors of the Japanese manufacturer’s factory team, as will already be the case at the Grand Prix of Aragon. The two races take place on the same MotorLand Aragon circuit one week apart. Michelin, which equips the MotoGP field, also announced Sunday that one of its technicians had tested positive and placed in isolation as well as one of its contacts in the team of the French tire manufacturer.
