終究還是要面對這天！Valentino Rossi 將於今年 MotoGP 賽季結束後退休！
Valentino Rossi 第十屆的世界冠軍還沒到手，就發布了令廣大車迷惋惜的消息，他將在2021年底從 MotoGP 退役！
25年的賽車生涯，共235次登上頒獎台，他的輝煌戰績相信各位車迷們也都如數家珍，但 Rossi 還是發表了下面的談話：
I said I would take a decision for next year after the summer break, and I decided to stop at the end of the season. Unfortunately this will be my last half season as a MotoGP rider. And it's difficult, it's a very sad moment because it's difficult to say and know that next year I will not race with a motorcycle, I've done that for I think more or less 30 years!
Next year, my life will change. But it was great, I've enjoyed it very much, it's been a long, long journey and it was really, really fun. It's 25, 26 years in the World Championship, so it was great. And I had a unforgettable moments with all my guys, the guys who work for me, so... I don't have a lot to say! Just this.
聽完 Rossi 說的感言，真的感觸很多，總覺得他也還想繼續跑下去，但許多的因素讓他做了這個"悲傷"的決定。
