Nine-time world champion Valentino Rossi has stated he is not bothered that Marc Marquez could well beat his record number of premier-class wins as well as surpass him in championships won.
Marquez is standing on the brink of a fifth MotoGP title - which means he needs two more to equal The Doctor – but has to more than double his current tally of wins to draw level with Rossi’s 89.
“Marquez can beat my records, but it does not bother me. You have to think about your own career and I think that mine is good. I won many races and I could have won more championships. My biggest regret is losing the championship in Valencia in 2006, when I made a mistake,” said Rossi.
