Positive Covid test rules Rossi out of MotoGP Aragon

Valentino Rossi will not take part in this weekend’s MotoGP Aragon round after testing positive for Coronavirus.

The Doctor tested negative twice this week but the second of two tests today returned a positive result.

He does not expect to take part in next weekend's race either.


“This morning, I woke up and I was not feeling good. My bones were sore and I had a slight fever,” said a statement from the Italian.

“I immediately called the doctor who tested me twice. The quick PCR test was negative, just like the test I underwent on Tuesday.

“But the second one, the result of which was sent to me at 4pm, was unfortunately positive.

"I am disappointed I will have to miss the race at Aragon. I'd like to be optimistic but I expect the second round to be a no-go for me as well.

"I am sad and angry because I did my best to respect the protocol and although the test I had on Tuesday was negative, I self-isolated since my arrival from Le Mans on Tuesday."
