Jacky Ickx, what a message to Valentino Rossi

Valentino Rossi’s victory in Misano, his first in a GT championship, caused a lot of uproar abroad and provoked the reaction of another great motorsport legend Jacky Ickx.

The former motorcycling and Formula 1 driver, winner of 6 24 Hours of Le Mans, paid tribute to the Doctor on his Instagram profile: ” Talent doesn’t care if you’re on 2 wheels or 4 wheels…. When you’re good, you’re good! A big ‘bravo’ to Valentino Rossi for his first win in the GT World Challenge Europe in Misano together with Maxime Martin in the BMW WRT.”

Jacky Ickx’s message will surely please Valentino, who wants to achieve more satisfaction in endurance racing. After his victory in Misano, the former MotoGp centaur explained in a video that went viral his feelings after returning to victory. Something he had been missing for a long time, since Assen 2017. “They say getting on the podium is important… however, c…o, winning gives you that thing in your back and legs that makes you go ‘brrr’. (laughs ed.).”

“Dude, then you feel like you’re in control when you’re first. Because when you’re second, you feel like you could have done better, but first you didn’t.”
