Valentino Rossi’s historic telemetry driver Matteo Flamigni, now track engineer in the VR46: “But now I just ask him to be constant”.
Matteo Flamigni, Valentino Rossi’s historic telemetry operator, in an interview with MotoG-Podcast, the Gazzetta dello Sport talk, retraced the years alongside the rider from Tavullia: “There are times when I think back to what it was, a ‘wonderful adventure, we were a small group, Uccio, Max, the guys from the team with whom we shared moments of light-hearted joy. We worked without realizing it “.
Now Flamigni is Marco Bezzecchi’s track engineer for the VR46 team: “It is my first Mugello as chief engineer and I live it in a different dimension, now I have a 360 ° view of what is happening. Working with Marco is beautiful, I found a boy with great enthusiasm, a fighter who at times has to be held back in terms of temperament, because knowing he is very fast, at times he would tend to overdo it, while I repeat to him that you need to be aware of your means, but without exaggerating “.
A quality of Valentino Rossi that he would give to Marco: “That of reading the race in the last laps, overtaking at the right time, being a killer. But it is something he will need later on, now I just ask him to be constant”.
